Compact crossover SUV shoppers are spoiled for choice. Two models that rise to the top of our ratings are the 2019 Subaru Forester and 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe.
Each has its own take on what’s best for everyday driving. Overall, we think the 2019 Forester’s combination of value, interior space, and fuel economy edges it ahead in our ratings. However, the 2019 Santa Fe has a luxurious interior and a stronger turbo-4 engine, which tips the balance in its favor for some needs.
