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.

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.
