TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Hyundai Tucson puts service ahead of sizzle, and caps it with an excellent warranty. The 2018 Jeep Compass makes some compromises in size and power, but its Trailhawk model hits the crossover-SUV sweet spot. There’s a lot to like about the sharp-handling, attractive 2018 Kia Sportage, even if its fuel economy doesn’t impress.
