Upgrades and crossgrades are indeed similar, but have a few differences. 

An upgrade is a discount on the latest version of a plug-in for those that own a previous version of the same plug-in. For example, an Auto-Tune EFX 3 license can be upgraded to Auto-Tune EFX+.

crossgrade is a discount on a plug-in for those that already own a different plug-in. For example, if you own Auto-Tune Pro, you can purchase a crossgrade to Auto-Tune EFX+. You would then own and have full access to both Auto-Tune Pro and Auto-Tune EFX+. 

Important: When you purchase a crossgrade, you get to keep both plug-ins, rather than surrendering one license for another. Think of it as a complimentary discount on the purchase of an additional plug-in.
