TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Buick Encore reaches for the compact-luxury stars, but it falls shy on styling and front-seat space. The 2016 Honda HR-V smartly trades a little of the Fit's fuel economy for exuberant styling, more headroom, and optional all-wheel drive. The 2016 Mini Counryman retains a fair amount of the Mini character and fun-to-drive spirit, but a growing crop of small crossovers give it more competition than ever.
