One of the most popular segments in the auto industry is the compact SUV. Why? It's the mix of practicality, utility, price and now fuel economy. There are three all-new or redesigned compact utes on the market since the Chevy Equinox won our last match-up just 18 months ago.
This time out we set some new rules. The contenders had to get 30 mpg on the highway and have an as-tested price under $25,000, not including the destination charge. Battling it out were:
- 2012 Chevy Equinox
- 2013 Ford Escape
- 2012 Honda CR-V
- 2012 Hyundai Tucson
- 2012 Kia Sportage
- 2013 Mazda CX-5
