Can someone explain why everyone is so crazy about this particular form? Even Land Rover is making one now!

But they made the freelander years ago...

>>14164431

Women and fags don't want to drive a sedan or a hatchback.

If you make a hatchback with a 1" lift on it, it is now the best vehicle in the world, on road or off road.

Bonus points if it has 75% or greater FWD bias AWD

Not having the length of a sedan while retaining (or exceeding) the cargo capacity is very useful in urban areas.

Plus, SUV's are all the rage these days but not everyone can afford or wants a larger suv so they but the cuv instead because they just want the ride height and the shorter vehicle.

My mother buys crossovers, here whole explanation is.

SUV's are to large

>>14164431
Once you grow out of the sports car stage (or have the money to have one just for fun) you want practicality. To pick up shit from home depot, go out golfing, take the dogs somewhere, pick up furniture, lawn equipment, hauling bullshit around etc etc etc. A giant yukon denali is just retarded and trucks are so fuck huge now, so you get a sweet cross over. It has ground clearance in case it's needed. They handle better than the big boat SUV's. They get better MPG. they look better. They have more room (generally) than hatchbacks. They basically tick all the boxes. If you guys would stop being faggots you would realize this.
>>
>>14164488
Agreed.

GLA is the best crossover in the market right now.
>>
>>14164771
being the absolute best in a narrow discipline is not what most people want

Bullshit, you sit a ton higher

So basically it's better in every way. so....point proven.

>comparing ONE specific vehicle when were talking in general

The vital statistics are 4417mm long, 1805mm wide and 1494mm tall and if you want a yardstick it’s 125mm longer than the A-Class.

The much bigger difference is in seat height because, as you’d expect in a SUV, you sit much higher up in the GLA than you do in the hatchback. -Richard Hammond Mirror review

they're shorter than a wagon. Higher off the ground than a hatch.

Practical. Upright seating position is more comfortable than sitting down into a sedan/hatch.

They're lifted wagons. Wagons are the shit if you want a shitload of space, comfort, and don't want to look like some pussywhipped minivan driver.

Manufacturers lifted them, told the public they were crossovers, told the government they were trucks, and told their hookers that the cocaine's never gonna stop flowing.
>>
They're basically a wagon with all of the negatives of a truck and none of the positives.

Women and fags buy them.

>>14164818
This is exactly it. Crossovers are designed nearly the same way as your typical econo-shit-box, but with that high seating position as a first priority.

In other words,
>Muh seating position
>Cheap
>Muh MPG
>Muted and predictable enough for inept female drivers to keep on the road

Actual passenger/cargo capacity, off-roading capability, and sport handling are secondary concerns. That's why comparisons to wagons, vans, or SUVs, or even sedans don't make as much sense.

tl;dr crossovers are taller econoboxes. People just haven't yet figured it out.

>>14165180
It's a trap. A real woman would have a cell phone in one hand.
>>
>>14171109
yup, and it's white mini crossovers are becoming a thing, what people ACTUALLY WANT is a high seating position econobox hatchback, it's just taken twenty years for car manufacturers to figure that out

>>14164849
A citroen ds can do the same while not looking like a pos and so can most hydro pneumatic citroens after it. Crossovers are cancer.

>>14164809
>can't even keep the rear wheel on the ground

>>
>>14171299
Depends on the independent suspension.

>>14164431
Because regular cars and hatchbacks got over the time lower and sportier, so they're not as usable. oldschool cars literally have everything these crossovers are supposed to be able to do and more.

The GLA45 AMG is actually only a tiny bit bigger than an STI hatchback. It's a crossover only in name. It's also way more powerful, has a DCT (shut the fuck up manualfags, no one cares)

Would look better without that slav-tier wing on the back.

Also red is a shit color so photo doesn't do it justice. Saw one in white recently that didn't look bad if you were in your 20s making some money, but I think by the time you hit 30 you'd look like a dildo driving that thing.
