This review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 is very timely. Did you notice the family sedan is slowly fading into obscurity to give way to crossover vehicles and larger SUVs? Our roads are literally filled with car-based crossovers that it’s hard to keep count. Ever carmaker is entering the SUV bandwagon. Even Rolls-Royce and Maserati are joining the fray with the Cullinan and Levante, respectively.
My test vehicle for this review is not a full-on SUV. I managed to spend some time driving a 2015 Subaru Forester with the 2.5-liter Boxer engine, CVT transmission, and Subaru’s famed symmetrical all-wheel drive system. It was fitted with stock 17-inch wheels and Continental CrossContact LX20 tires. You might be asking why my test vehicle was fitted with such a tire, and I’ll tell you why: the owner of the Forester is a hardcore off-roader. He also owns a modified Jeep Wrangler to play with the big boys. He wanted a set of tires that are refined on the highway yet capable in light off-road driving scenarios. It seems he found the answer with the Continental CrossContact LX20.
