The Jeep Renegade has an engaging look and Jeep bona fides.
It's the most rugged vehicle in a class that includes the slightly larger, hatchback-derived Subaru XV Crosstrek, a smash hit with standard AWD, rugged durability, and the ground clearance to handle light off-roading.
The style-over-function priority also applies to the MINI Cooper Countryman as well, despite its available AWD.
It's also notably pricier than the Jeep.
The Chevy Trax is similarly upright and functional but doesn't have the Jeep cachet or friendly face.
New entries for the 2016 model year include the Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-3.
The Honda offers excellent fuel economy, ride quality, and space usage, while the Mazda has crisp road manners and attractive styling.
