Top 10: Most Popular Crossover Vehicles for 2016

03rd Feb 2016

The Crossover market is still relatively new, having started in 2007 with the Nissan Qashqai. Argued to be the world's first crossover, the Qashqai has the aesthetic values of a family car - the practical interior, comfortable drive and low running cost - blended with some key SUV characteristics such as a raised ride height and option of four-wheel drive, to give you extra grip.

A big hit in the UK - other manufacturers started to engineer their own Crossover concepts making it sometimes problematic to choose the best Crossover to suit your needs. From the latest website statistics, we've created a list of the top 10 Crossovers by popularity.
