When it was first introduced, the Jeep Compass was seen as an alternative to larger crossovers, but in the seven years it has been on sale, the little Jeep has been joined by many new compact crossovers.
Among them, the Nissan Juke is perhaps the sportiest, yet the least practical.
The MINI Countryman is also at the sporty side of this group; it offers a lot of interior space, although its ride can be harsh and it doesn’t offer much if any off-road capability.
The Subaru XV Crosstrek is a more carlike vehicle, but it’s surprisingly tough and fuel-efficient; the down side here too is refinement.
The Hyundai Tucson is compact and easy to park like the Compass, but more cohesive and stylish in design.
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a somewhat better-designed interior and a comfortable ride, although it suffers from some of the same refinement issues as the Compass.
