and more different categories, crossovers seem to be whatever fills the gap between a car and a truck. With many models taking on the role of wagons or car-based SUV’s, it seems that most crossovers are a better alternative to either a gas pig or a hatched car.
This year it seems that even more companies are jumping on the crossover bandwagon. With a major shift from average cars to the form of something more luxurious, it seems that everyone wants a taste. More and more companies are now getting involve, even those, who said they would never create an SUV are getting into the crossover field. Over the next couple of years, we will definitely see a major change in the way we move our families around.
For a segment which is just in its infancy, you can see that its not going to take very long for it to mature. Where the mini-van and SUV craze failed, the crossover segment seems to be excelling. Considering that the crossover field has a wide range of different types and categories, it just may never really see the end of what is fully possible. Where the wagon once rained king the crossover field will make all of the reigning segments win again.
Well, if you have to name a crossover which really defines this segment then the winner of the A+ award truly is the best pick. The 2010 Audi Allroad truly is the best pick for the A+ award, since it is one of the original crossovers. That and it does have Audi design, which is by far one of the best out there today, well all except the new A6.
Now if you have to ask who wins for the worst design this year, then you really were not paying full attention. If you have to ask why the 2010 Lincoln MKT won the Rusty award, then you really did not take a good look at it. From its odd lines to the new/old grille, just about everything on the MKT is bad, and really Ford should rethink its new design direction.
