Here’s the pick of our favourites...
Combining the lower costs and easy handling of a hatchback with the more spacious interior and higher driving position of an SUV, the crossover car has practicality written all over it. It grabs attention without hogging the limelight and while other, larger SUVs are struggling to find a parking space, a crossover will have snuck in, right under their noses.
Eager to please, many manufacturers have now turned their skills to include at least one crossover in their range. But with so many on the market, which crossover car should you choose?
The Simply Stylish Peugeot 2008 SUV
The Peugeot 2008 SUV boasts front fog lights, rear sports spoiler, distinctive grille and alloy wheels as standard, with all models above Active trim having extended wheel arches and scuff plates for added flair.
Big windows and an optional panoramic roof provide a well-lit interior during the day, while the instrument panel features LEDs so your eyes don’t stray far from the road as the light begins to fade.
Driver assistance features, such as programmable cruise control and Connected 3D Sat Nav**, will have you looking forward to longer drives and the opportunity to experiment with the easy tilt and fold seats, making good use of the spacious interior of this crossover car.
The Very Versatile Volkswagen T-Cross
A choice of design packs, metallic paints and tinted glass** make the VW T-Cross the perfect addition to the Volkswagen SUV range.
Factory fitted options include an eight-channel, 6-speaker sound system; Apple/Android connectivity via App-Connect; an eight-inch touchscreen sat nav; and voice activation.
The Park Assist feature and rear view camera save time and stress whether you’re at home, work, school or just nipped out for a quick bite.

The Perfectly Practical Honda HR-V
Equipped with Honda’s famed Magic Seats and the most spacious boot of the crossover cars on our list, the Honda HR-V is as practical as they come.
A wide and low boot opening provides easy loading while the opening panoramic roof** gives the illusion of even more space.
Heated seats** and climate control make every drive more comfortable while an electric parking brake, City-Brake Active System and emergency stop signal are just a few of the features that make driving this popular crossover ultra safe. Style packs, including aero bumpers and mirror caps, can be teamed with footlights and/or 18’ alloy wheels to create an eye-catching drive.
