30 Off-Road Vehicle Designs

From Beefy Off-Road Cars to Compact Adventure SUVs

— August 2, 2014 — Autos
The family car is seeing an overhaul to feature many of the perks that an off-road vehicle can offer as the luxury crossover takes the top spot for those that want something for lugging goods and getting around in a tough spot. The demand for smaller vehicles for scooting around the city has risen dramatically in North America recently, but old habits die hard; the classic American SUV is being replaced with more streamlined designs that blend the best of both worlds.

Rising gas prices is pushing car manufacturers to create ultra-efficient vehicles that offer the size and stability of an off-road vehicle with an attractive price point. As wants and needs continue to be at odds in the vehicle market, it's clear that manufacturers are ready to respond in kind with suitable choices.
