Crossover

Just a month and a half ago, Qoros was a Chinese-Israeli automaker showing off vanilla, nondescript designs like the Qoros 3 City SUV (those missing doors are there to help highlight the interior, not for visual effect). We knew that change was in the air, and after the Shanghai auto show, Qoros is now the warped mind behind one of the meanest, strangest small crossover designs in recent memory. The Qoros 2 SUV PHEV Concept may be friendly to the environment, but it's downright nasty to anyone that looks over in its direction. Read More
It was no secret that Aston Martin would have a big presence at the Geneva Motor Show. We were itching to make our way to its booth ever since seeing the Vulcan track car. When we arrived, we found that Gaydon had a little something extra in store. It revealed an entirely different look with the surprise debut of the DBX, a concept car that explores the possibility of a luxury GT crossover. Read More
Usually one of the last car brands you'd think of when you think "off road," Kia is looking to pull urbanites out of city limits and into the great outdoors. The all-new Soul-based Trail'ster concept it's showing at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show is the vision of a small crossover that's as comfortable roaming wide-open public lands as it is maneuvering cramped city streets.

Fiat has gone off-roading at the Paris Motor Show with the debut of its 500X compact crossover. To be available in two versions – one aimed city driving and the other for the outdoor leisure market – the new crossover comes in two-wheel and four-wheel drive configurations and features a wide choice of engines and gearboxes, including a nine-speed automatic.

Introduced in 2011, the Crossrunner motorcycle marked Honda's attempt to square the circle between grungy off-road machines and the exquisitely polished garage trophies of the urban market. The latest version of the premium adventure sports tourer has now been revealed at Intermot – and it warrants a closer look. Read More
Last month, Toyota provided us with some teaser renderings of its C-HR hybrid crossover concept. At the time, although we got a quick look at its outward appearance, it was a little difficult to really get a sense of the thing. Well, now we've had a chance to see it for ourselves at its Paris Motor Show world debut, and can tell you a bit more about it. Read More
Unlike BMW’s 2 series coupes, which are basically rebadged 1-series, the new 2 Series Active Tourer (2SAT) is not only the firm’s first front wheel drive model, but also the first to feature a three cylinder engine. Designed to set the groundwork for future front-wheel drive models, the 2 Series Active Tourer is set to shake up the crossover market in Europe and China. Read More
Nissan’s stylistically contentious Juke is one of those "hate it or love it" vehicles. With its odd headlight treatments and strange design elements, the Juke is definitely for a specific taste. Now Nissan has unveiled both the redesigned Juke for 2015 and the all new, more straight forward X-trail. While the new Juke benefits from a series of design enhancements, new engine offerings and some technological revisions, the new X-Trail gets a complete ground up redesign. Read More
Audi appears committed to injecting the SUV segment with added sportiness, at least insofar as concept cars are concerned. Last year, it showed an off-road supercar named the Nanuk Quattro. At this week's Beijing Motor Show, it got a little more practical in transforming its TT into an off-road-ready hybrid crossover based closely on the Allroad Shooting Brake concept from earlier this year.

Even though this year's Detroit and Geneva auto shows provided us with a number of big concept releases and production debuts, the New York Auto Show still remains one of North America’s premier events. Gizmag was on the ground last week to investigate some of the show’s more interesting debuts and North American reveals. Here’s our first-hand look at some of the highlights and the key designs from the 2014 show. Read More
