The compact SUV and crossover segment is one of the most competitive on the market today, but after only one year of sales, the Volkswagen Tiguan has shown that it has what it takes to battle with the top dogs—the Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV4 are the perennial best-sellers in this field.
The CR-V benefits from a smooth ride, a strong reputation for reliability, and flexible interiors, while the RAV4 boasts optional V-6 power and third-row seating.
Overall, the Chevrolet Equinox was much-improved last year and boasts a new direct-injected four-cylinder engine that's more fuel-efficient.
