It’s no secret crossovers and SUVs are sweeping vehicle sales numbers across the country. Americans are buying these high-riding, unibodied wagons like never before and automakers are responding with even more models. It seems the humble sedan’s days are numbered. But crossovers are inherently compromised – their high center of gravity and sloppy on-road handling not rewarded with off-road capability as with traditional SUVs. The crossover is the cotton candy of the automotive world; all fluff and sugar with no substance. But there’s a better way to get loads of cargo volume without killing on-road drivability. Enter: the hatchback. And perhaps the best and newest example is the 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback.
