What’s The Difference between a Crossover and an SUV at O'Brien Hyundai of Normal?
Few automakers can match Hyundai of America’s roster of crossover SUVs. And when you visit O’Brien Hyundai of Normal, you’ll see just how special these vehicles are. Impressive styling, abundant features, powerful engines, and top safety scores are all integrated into these fantastic automobiles.
What is a Crossover?
A crossover SUV, such as the 2019 Hyundai Kona and 2019 Hyundai Tucson, possess a unibody construction very similar to that of a sedan. So when you hear someone say that “Hyundai crossover SUVs handle like cars”, you’ll know what they mean. Crossover SUVs possess car-like steering and handling, along with good fuel economy.
Crossover SUVs come in a variety of shapes and sizes to meet a variety of needs. The 2019 Hyundai Kona is a great choice for city dwellers, with its excellent maneuverability and hatchback-influenced design. The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe offers three-row seating and a powerful engine, making it a top choice for families.
What Is An SUV?
Full disclosure: when you visit our Hyundai dealership at 600 Greenbriar Drive in Normal, IL, you won’t find any traditional SUVs. By this, we mean a vehicle that possesses a truck-influenced, body-on-frame design, in which the main part of the vehicle is built separately and then attached to a steel underbody (frame).
An SUV doesn’t offer much design variety, as its main function is a roomy people-hauler with a powerful engine that provides strong towing ability. Due to their truck-like construction, SUVs are also effective in off-road environments.
