Hot Wheels

Sales of new vehicles are expected to decline about 2 percent this year in Colorado but one segment of the market is hot.

Vehicles known as "crossovers" are the hottest cars coming off the dealership lots.

They are smaller and more fuel-efficient sport utility vehicles.

Sales of crossovers, such as the Honda CRV and Subaru Forester, were up as much as 27 percent during the first 6 months of 2004 according to the Colorado Automobile Dealers' Association.

Car buyers say they like crossovers because they have full-sized SUV features, such as extra space and off-roading capabilities, but with better fuel efficiency and handling.
