on a car platform and combining, in highly variable degrees, features of a
sport utility vehicle (SUV) with features from a passenger vehicle,
especially those of a station wagon or hatchback." We simply like to say
that the crossover is the new family truckster. Here are the Top 5 off-road
worthy crossovers that we've driven in 2011.

10 of the Best Seven Seater SUVs - Autobytel's 7 Passenger SUV List
though more and more Americans are downsizing to save money, there is still
a need for 7 passenger SUVs and Crossovers. Let's take a look at 10 of the
best seven seater SUVs in the U.S.A.
10) Lincoln MKT - The Lincoln MKT is a luxury version of the Ford Flex with
a total cargo area of over 70 cubic feet. The engine that powers the MKT is
3.7 liter V-6 but there is also a 3.5 liter ecoBoost V-6 engine option. The Lincoln MKT can
be had with AWD too. But what really makes the MKT stand out from the crown
of seven seater SUVs is its unique styling featuring a massive front
9) Buick Enclave -- The Buick Enclave is a worth advisory for some of the 7
Passenger Luxury SUVs like the Acura MDX. The 3.6 liter direct injection
V-6 is a proven commodity having over 280 horsepower plus the ability
to tow 4500 lbs. Where this seven passenger SUV really shines is the
interior. The Enclave is comprised of high quality materials and top notch
technology which help the Enclave make it to the list of 10 best seven
8) Subaru Tribeca -- The Tribeca is Subaru's largest vehicle offering
boasting AWD and room for 7 passengers. With tons of interior room the
Tribeca is not only an effective hauler but it also a capable off-road SUV.
The 3.6 liter V-6 makes over 250 horsepower which is enough
to get the job done.
7) Acura MDX -- The Acura MDX is one of those vehicles that absolutely
nailed its mission statement by being a reliable premium SUV that is built
to last. Standard Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive makes this a sure footed
seven seater SUV. The 3.7 liter V-6 engine provides plenty of power. The
Acura MDX is one of those rare vehicles that owners want to keep forever.
6) Ford Expedition -- The Ford Expedition is a true body-on-frame SUV that
can handle 7 or 8 passengers and their gear thanks to 108 cubic feet or
storage. This large SUV can also tow over 9000 lbs. The 301 horsepower 5.4 liter V-8
might not be the most cutting edge but its works well when mated to the
6-speed automatic transmission. The Expedition is an old school SUV and you
can negotiate deep discounts on this seven seater vehicle.
5) Honda Pilot -- Honda was a little bit late to the SUV game with the
Pilot but they have quickly emerged as a measuring stick for other brands.
The 250 horsepower
3.5 liter V-6 engine is the smallest in the group but it does feature
cylinder deactivation to help save fuel. Perhaps the greatest attribute of
this 7 passenger SUV is that it's very easy to drive for its size. Honda
understands how these SUVs are being used so they made this one of the best
on the market for families.
4) Infiniti JX -- When Infiniti launched the 7 passenger JX crossover,
their #1 objective was to give shoppers a viable alternative to the Acura
MDX. Early sales success indicates they have a winner on their hands. The
aggressive styling, cutting edge entertainment, and trick motorized second
row make the JX one great choice as the best seven seater SUVs. The
Infiniti JX is built for comfort and the CVT trans eliminates shifting so
that the 3.5 liter V-6 engine keeps all 265 horses running smoothly.
3) Mazda CX-9 -- The Mazda CX-9 has remained relatively unchanged since its
debut back in 2007. Although this seven seater SUV is one of the oldest, it
still represents a great value. The 3.7 liter V-6 makes 273 horsepower and is mated to a
6-speed automatic. What the CX-9 may lack in flash more than makes up in
the areas of reliability and overall value. Mazda may be known more for
their Zoom Zoom cars but they can also make some great family automobiles
that can transport up to 7 people.
2) Nissan Armada -- When Nissan launched the Armada, the intention was to
put a dent in Suburban and Expedition sales by providing a full-sized truck
based vehicle with Japanese engineering. The Armada's 5.7 liter V-8 engine
is more than capable of carrying 7 passengers, their luggage, and a towing
a larger object weighing over 9000 lbs. While there are many 7 seater SUVs
and crossovers out there, few can transport them as comfortably as the
1) Chevrolet Suburban -- At the top of the Autobytel best seven passenger
car list is the Chevy Suburban. This is one of the longest running
nameplates in the automotive world spanning many decades. There is a reason
for this; the Suburban can carry 7 or 8 passengers, all their gear, and
more with a very comfortable ride.

2013 KIA Sportage SX vs Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 KIA Sportage SX and the 2013 Hyundai
Santa Fe Sport have a lot in common. They are both 5 passenger Crossovers.
They both have automatic transmissions. They both can have all-wheel-drive.
They both offer an outstanding value for your money. They both are made by
the same parent company and perhaps most importantly they both share
basically the same turbo charged 2.0L
engine. So of course we wanted to know which one is faster from 0-60 MPH at a mile above sea
level. In another fun and interesting TFLcar Mashup review we put both of
these Korean twins to the test to see which one is the sporty car of the
two new crossovers.

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Test Drive & Crossover SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/hyundai/santa-fe/?id=32972 The 2013
Hyundai Santa Fe is a brand new redesign that makes this the 3rd generation
automobile. It's hard to believe that the Santa Fe came out back in 1998.
Back then there were not many crossovers on the market yet. Now that
practically every automobile manufacturer has a crossover, Hyundai is
playing it smart. They have gotten rid of the Veracruz model and then
Hyundai has created a long wheel base and a short wheel base Santa Fe.
Prices start at $24,450.
There are 2 different engine options available on the 2013 Santa Fe Sport.
The first is a direct injected 2.4 liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 190
horsepower and 181
lb-ft. of torque. The second engine is a 2.0 liter turbocharged and gasoline direct injected motor
that makes 264 horsepower and 269 lb-ft. of
torque. The standard transmission is a 6-speed automatic. Fuel economy is
31 MPG combined for the turbo and 33 MPG
combined for the naturally aspirated engine.
On the inside the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a great 8-inch Navigation
as an option. The panoramic sunroof is ultra cool and lets rear passengers
enjoy the fresh air and sunlight. The Santa Fe Sport comes standard with
many great features like cruise control, power windows and locks,
Bluetooth, and steering wheel mounted audio controls to name a few. Safety
wise the Santa Fe comes with 7 airbags, stability control, traction
control, and anti-lock brakes. These items are all standard on the 2013
Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.
Many improvements have been made and maybe the most important is the
reduction in weight. The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe weighs 266 lbs. less than
the previous model. That weight reduction has a positive effect on fuel
economy. The Santa Fe Sport can carry up to 5 people. The rear seat is a
40/20/40 split bench making for a versatile crossover SUV. You can order
the Santa Fe in either FWD or AWD configurations.
The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is priced right alongside its competition.
But with the Santa Fe you get more standard features for your money along
with a great 10 year 100k mile warranty.

Subaru Forester SUV 2013 review - CarBuyer

"It's not the best looking SUV out there, but the Subaru Forester is
practical, rugged and reliable."
Subaru has always excelled at rugged, no frills SUVs. The new Forester
picks up where the old one left off, but offers more interior space,
sharper handling and smart looks.
As you can see the boot is a decent size, larger than a Nissan Qashqai with
a flat load lip and with the seats folded as easily as pulling this lever
standard on all but the cheapest you can transport larger items.
Thanks to a lowered floor there is also more room for passengers, headroom
and legroom is plentiful and these big wide opening doors make it easy to
get in and out.
In fact the whole cabin is larger because the front pillars have been moved
forwards and for items that you don't put in the boot, there is a large
cubby hole here. The new Forester definitely lives up to practical
reputation built by previous models as there is more storage here and here.
There is enough adjustment in the seat to find a comfortable driving
position, and on that note...
The first place I wanted to drive was off road, the 4x4 system adapts to
whatever conditions you are driving in (perfect for the rough British
winter), and features hill hold and downhill aid functions as standard.
Plus the suspension settings are well judged keeping things comfortable on
Minimising body roll in the corners on tarmac. Combine that with the good
throttle response, lower centre of gravity and more rigid body and the
Forester has an improved drive over the 3rd generation it replaces. If it's
towing that you will be doing then this car can tow 2 tonnes and is fitted
with a stabilisation system to keep things under control when your trailer
or caravan is attached.
Now though it is time to talk about its negative points. I will start with
the steering. Although light it offers very little feedback. The the CVT
automatic gearbox is not smooth and is a bit whiny. But the real whining
will come from your purse because despite fuel consumption and performance
coming on leaps and bounds in recent years, sadly the Forester's figures do
not fare well against the competition. You will be lucky to get 28 miles to
the gallon out of the 2.0 litre petrol, so you could go for the diesel
which returns a more acceptable 49 miles to the gallon, but that's still
some way behind the Mazda CX-5 and Ford Kuga.
Inside, there are some cheap looking buttons and switches, however let's
not forget what type of vehicle this is, it's a rugged, fit for purpose,
hard wearing Subaru with a loyal following by those that love its
workmanlike charm. And for that reason, it's sure to win the heart of those
wanting a dependable, reliable and practical SUV.
