Quick Specs
4.3
The 2017 Jeep Compass hasn't aged well, and its space, performance, and especially safety are all now well below par.
7.0
The 2017 Hyundai Tucson doesn't live on the cutting edge, but it's an attractive, economical crossover SUV that's worth a spot on your shopping list.
4.5
The 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is an attractive option for budget buyers looking for a capable crossover, but doesn't come without compromises.
5.0
The 2017 Nissan Juke is best considered as the sportiest pick among subcompact crossovers, but it does come at a price.
6.2
The 2017 Subaru Outback is an extremely versatile, rugged, compact SUV that's relatively efficient compared to other crossovers.
7.0
It may be less mini than before, but the Mini Countryman now does a much better job of feeling like a proper crossover.
