A crossover is a vehicle that combines the sportiness of a SUV, with the ease of handling and smaller size of something like a sedan. Therefore, you can call a crossover a “small SUV” or something like that.
The thing is, crossovers appeal to large group of people, simply because they’re easier to handle and fun to drive. That’s why, over the years automobile makers have gone to the drawing board time and time again to find the right aesthetic appeal and the right specs to reel in buyers.
The Nissan Juke is one such example of a crossover created to appeal to as much people as possible. Some are hailing the Juke as the best small crossover of 2015. However, let’s take a look at the specs on it.
The first thing you should know is that the Juke’s starting price is around $21,000. That makes it just a tad more expensive than most of the crossovers in its range. A lot of people like the Nissan Juke, it’s a really cool car. Mostly women drive them, since they have quite a feminine air about them.
There’s just something about the rev of their engine that appeals to women, and their futuristic design feels like something from the Jetsons. The Nissan Juke is arguably the best small crossover of 2015. Ask some of the people you know and see what they say, they might just say yes!
The Land Rover Range Rover: The best luxury car?
When you think of the type of car that the rich and famous drive –or are driven around in – no doubt certain vehicles come to your mind. You might think of a Mercedes Benz, a Bentley, something like a BMW 7 series, or even a Maybach. However, what about Range Rovers? According to statistics, the Land Rover Range Rover might just be the best luxury car out there. Why do we say this?
For one, is the fact that the Range Rover possesses amazing off-road capabilities. Very few luxury cars are able to drive safely through rivers, or traverse frigid tundra. In fact, the Land Rover Range Rover is arguably the only car capable of doing this, all in impressive style.
Another thing that makes this vehicle a force to be reckoned with in the luxury car world is just how comfortable it is. The Range Rover is the pinnacle of comfort, offering exotic features like wirelessly operated seats, spacious seating and boot space and a surround sound entertainment system. Driving in a Range Rover, or driving one is an immersive experience that many people rarely get to experience.
Another thing that is expected about a Range Rover is its price tag. The vehicles run into the tens of thousands of pounds, and aren’t widely produced and circulated. They are viewed as almost exclusive vehicles and we see why. However, if you can afford it, a Land Rover Range Rover might just be the best vehicle you’ve been in.

Life in New York City
The Streets of New York City: Are They As Glamorous As They Seem?
Hollywood tends to sugarcoat everything, from what an all-female prison is actually like, to expectations for relationships and families. One other thing that films seem to sugar coat is what living in New York City is actually like. Here are just a few things about the city of New York that aren’t actually how they are:
- It’s not a fashion show 24/7. Unlike the movies tell you, there’s no way that you can walk down the streets of New York City looking like you just stepped off a runway, in six inch heels and your hair billowing in the breeze. The majority of the time, the places you’re going are far apart and walking in such high heels would be torture.
- You can’t pick up people off the street. 10 chances to 1, anyone who you pick up off the street is a crazy who’s either looking for somewhere to sleep or to con you out your money. Ask anyone who lives there, it’s not practical to just walk down the street and expect to find a stellar date.
Maybe you should visit New York one day, to get a feel of what the place is actually like aside from what the media perpetuates. It’s an amazing place, just amazing in different ways from what you might think. The shopping is amazing though, don’t worry.
