Flight is an amazing thing. You can board a jet in Pittsburgh at breakfast time and dine on escargot in Paris for dinner. Never in human history has mankind been able to travel so quickly. It took Christopher Columbus months to cross the Atlantic, now we accomplish the same feat in as few as eight hours; the whole process is as routine as flipping on a light switch or cleaning up a murder scene.

Crossovers are all about fuel efficiency and family functionality. They blend attributes of cars with traits of traditional SUVs to create vehicles that are neither fish nor fowl; they’re the undecided voter of the automotive world, essentially the state of Ohio.
