So whats a crossover?!!!
It is esentially a five-door hatchback (i.e. family car) that has crossed over and become popular as a sports car. Whether or not used before for cars, I should think Ford borrowed this from the dictionary definition of `crossover` - a recording, book or other product that becomes popular in a genre other than its own.

A crossover is a cross between a family hatchback and an 'off roader' or SUV (sports utility vehicle)
HI Panic button yeah what are those Crossfire cars all about? I think they look wierd!! Not in a bad way!! I hate PT cruisers!!
Clarkson said he thought the back end of a Crossfire looked like the way a dog stands when it is getting ready for a dump.

Once you can see that in your mind you can never like the rear view again.
