The Tucson continues to flash a daring look, although in other respects it's only mid-pack.
The Kia Sportage is the Tucson's corporate cousin.
Its sport-shoe styling and optional turbocharged engine set it apart from the Tucson, as does UVO, its Bluetooth-driven voice controller for phone and audio.
The Ford Escape completely ditches its old, trucklike shape for a svelte hatchback look, bringing carlike handling to the party.
The Honda CR-V has an evolutionary look and drivetrain that together aren't so captivating, but interior room is excellent.
The Nissan Rogue is about to be replaced by an all-new model, but it has a CVT that makes the least of its four-cylinder engine.
The latest Toyota RAV4, on the other hand, takes a step back to more conservative ground, dropping the available V-6 and third-row seat and doubling down on five-passenger value.
