The American automotive industry is doing well as of late, recording top sales numbers this year. And as the auto renaissance continues to grow, one thing has become clear: American drivers are digging crossover SUVs. In fact, for the first time in history, crossover SUVs earned better sales numbers than traditional cars. What has so many American drivers excited about crossovers? We explore the trend in detail here and encourage you to check out a couple of impressive luxury crossover SUVs brought to you by Land Rover.

What Has Americans So Enthusiastic About Crossover SUVs?

There are many reasons that American drivers have turned to the crossover SUV segment to satisfy their diverse automotive needs. In addition to generally offering more room than a sedan for passengers and luggage, crossovers promise a confident presence on the road, and most come with the sure-footedness of an all-wheel drive system. Unlike larger SUVs, crossovers are also generally fairly affordable and fuel-efficient, and they usually provide more compliant and responsive on-road driving mannerisms.

Land Rover Crossover SUVs

There are several exciting luxury SUVs in the current Land Rover lineup, including a couple of premium crossover SUV options.

  • Land Rover Range Rover Evoque: This unique take on the crossover is available as a two-door coupe, four-door hatchback, and even as a convertible. With seating for up to five passengers, you’ll have plenty of room to fit the whole family. In terms of performance, every model is powered by a turbocharged 2.0L inline-four. You’ll get standard all-wheel drive, as well as hill start assist, hill descent control, and the Land Rover Terrain Response System. Get up to an EPA-estimated 29 mpg highway and 21 mpg city, and buy the 2017 model from $41,800 MSRP.
  • Land Rover Discovery Sport: Looking for a compact luxury crossover SUV with precision handling and lots of premium features? The 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport gets the same turbocharged inline-four as the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, and it’s also offered with All Terrain Progress Control for low-speed cruising on difficult terrain. Find it from $37,695 MSRP.
