Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Santa Fe slots between compact crossover SUVs and three-row crossover SUVs in a mid-size segment booming in recent years.

The Volkswagen Tiguan compact crossover runs large but is relatively sedate in style and features.

A classic name wearing a new look this year, the Jeep Grand Cherokee looks and plays the part of a capable Jeep SUV.

The Honda Passport takes a rugged turn from the more pedestrian Pilot and CR-V in the Honda family.

Both the Nissan Murano and resurrected Chevrolet Blazer aim more upscale on the inside and with features and options.
