What’s the difference between a crossover and SUV?

I currently own a sedan, but it’s too small for me now that I’ve got a second child on the way. I want to upgrade to something bigger, maybe a crossover or SUV. What’s the difference between these two vehicle types?

“The frame is the only real difference. SUVs are typically built on a truck’s frame, while crossovers usually feature a unibody design. The unibody construction of the crossover generally reduces weight, allowing for the use of smaller, more fuel-efficient engines. However, SUVs have a clear advantage when it comes to towing capacity and off-road capabilities.
Both designs typically allow for more passenger and cargo space, and either one is a good choice for buyers who need some extra room. “
