Crossovers are so handy it's amazing no one thought of them sooner. They have the comfort of a sedan, most of the ground clearance of a typical SUV, and the space of a hatchback. And lately all of them are sport great designs. 

Case in point is the all-new, second-generation Subaru XV. Its predecessor was a runaway hit for the Japanese carmaker, despite not having a turbocharger. It reached out to a new market that wanted the stability of all-wheel drive, the Japanese build quality, and a bit of performance. 

We were able to sample the new XV during its launch in Taiwan a few months ago, and it is better than the first generation in every way. And because they look so alike, there's a strong visual continuity here too. Current owners will likely be tempted to upgrade, and it'll bring in new buyers as well. 

The official Philippine launch is happening in a few weeks, so stay tuned for updates about this cool crossover.
