The best rides in luxury crossovers priced under $60,000
A crossover or a crossover utility vehicle (CUV) is a vehicle built on a car platform, combining the features of a sports utility vehicle (SUV) especially those of a station wagon or hatchback. In order to construct crossovers, car designers have resorted to making use of the unibody construction which is typical of passenger vehicles instead of the body-on-frame platform used in making light trucks and the original SUV’s. However, the design features of the SUV like tall interior packaging, high H-point seating, high centre of gravity, high ground clearance and all-wheel capability have been used in the construction of the crossovers as well. Let’s take a look at the best luxury crossovers of 2016 that have taken the customers to new heights of luxury:
- 2016 Lexus GX: Constructed upon the same rugged platform as the Toyota 4Runner, the Lexus GX although softened in duty as a luxury crossover, it still retains its off-roading capabilities. It comes fully equipped with a V-8 engine, a 4 wheel drive and a seating capacity of up to seven people.
- 2016 Lincoln MKT: This luxury crossover is a seven passenger seater that comes with a V-6 or a twin turbo charged V-6 engine. The Lincoln MKT has a style of its own and a very unique interior.
- 2016 Porsche Macan: Porsche got into the crossover platform with its entry level Macan, but in 2016 it is offered in S and turbo model series as well. Both of the models are power packed with a twin turbocharged engine but in the Macan S, the V-6 displaces 3.0 liters whereas in the Macan Turbo the engine is a 3.6 liter V-6. As always with Porsche, customers can customize this luxury crossover with a wide variety of colours, wheel designs, interior material and equipment.
- 2016 Lincoln MKX: This is a technologically advanced 5-passenger luxury crossover. Buyers can opt for a V-6 or a twin turbo-charged V-6 engine and the 4 wheel drive is also optional. Lincoln offers a truly personalised buying experience.
