If you're searching for a family car, it's likely you've considered SUVs or crossovers. And if you've considered them, it's likely you've wondered: What's the difference? Why are some models called crossovers while others are known as SUVs?

If you're unsure whether your vehicle of choice uses a car-based unibody design or body-on-frame construction, the safest bet is to use the term "SUV." That acronym is still used to describe nearly anything with available all-wheel drive and raised ground clearance, so you'll probably be safe.
