The number of subcompact crossovers is expanding.
When the Honda HR-V hits the streets this year, it'll be met head-on by the Chevy Trax, a less expensive version of the Buick Encore already on sale in the U.S.
Two other brand-new entries are coming as well: there's the daringly styled Mazda CX-3, derived from the new Mazda 2 hatchback, and the Fiat 500X, a smoothly rounded, Audi-like crossover that shares its running gear with the Jeep Renegade.
The Renegade itself can be put in this group too, though it's undoubtedly going to appeal to a more off-road-oriented shopper.
