Sometime around 1 am on a warm night last June, Fei-Fei Li was sitting in her pajamas in a Washington, DC, hotel room, practicing a speech she would give in a few hours. Before going to bed, Li cut a full paragraph from her notes to be sure she could reach her most important points in the short time allotted. When she woke up, the 5'3" expert in artificial intelligence put on boots and a black and navy knit dress, a departure from her frequent uniform of a T-shirt and jeans. Then she took an Uber to the Rayburn House Office Building, just south of the US Capitol. Before entering the chambers of the US House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, she lifted her phone to snap a photo of the oversize wooden doors.

You'll have noticed them on your street, down at the supermarket or parked outside your office. There might even be one on your driveway. The SUV - or crossover - has become one of the UK's favourite types of vehicle.Thousands are replacing their old hatchbacks, saloons and estate cars with these high-riding, practical lifestyle wagons. While some still frown on the SUV, these cars are popular for a reason. You sit higher up - so they're easy to get into and out of - plus you get a great view out. And if you've got a family to carry around then they offer more space inside than a hatchback, but also tend not to be shorter than the estate car you might otherwise have bought for its carrying capacity.In this buying guide, we round up the best SUVs available. Given that the market is now so large and diverse we've split our list into three sections: Small crossovers Mid-sized family SUVs Large SUVs Small CrossoversWhat's a crossover?

Whenever we buy a new piece of technology, we have to weigh the decision carefully. With a phone it isn't simply a case of picking the device with the biggest screen or the fastest processor; there's a more fundamental decision: iPhone or Android?Whichever you choose will lock you into that device's ecosystem for the next couple of years – and your choice of apps and features will be limited by the side you pick.And with today's cars becoming increasingly tech-filled, from sat navs and entertainment systems to what are essentially in-car operating systems, considerations of compatibility, obsolescence – and yes, Apple vs Android – are now just as important when you're buying a new set of wheels.We don't replace our cars as often as we replace our phones, or even our games consoles.
