The Honda CR-V may be our pick in the class thanks to its refined interior and good fuel economy in most models.
It’s getting pricier as years go on, however.
The Toyota RAV4 is still a pleasure to drive and offers a hybrid powertrain for better fuel economy that’s reasonably priced.
The Chevy Equinox is a newcomer and redesigned for 2018.
It has fuel-efficient powertrains, including a turbodiesel, but its biggest problem is its price.
The Ford Escape is relatively old compared to the rest, but offers a turbocharged powertrain that can be entertaining—and fuel efficient.
The Nissan Rogue is a three-row crossover, same as the Outlander, but it’s just as cramped although we like the Rogue’s versatility.
