Quick Specs
5.8
The 2020 Mazda CX-30 is a right-sized small crossover with good looks that’s the most fun to drive among its competitors.
4.2
The 2020 Chevy Trax crossover has a low price for a tall ride height–and not much else.
3.7
The 2020 Ford Ecosport is not particularly good value, not particularly efficient, and not particularly good.
5.2
The 2020 Honda HR-V oozes with practicality, though gas mileage and safety equipment have room to improve.
The 2020 Hyundai Venue is a subcompact crossover with big ideas.
5.5
The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek is as plucky as ever, but with more available safety gear this year.
