The 2018 Nissan Rogue offers more standard safety tech than nearly any of its rivals, and its ability to drive itself over short distances is a game changer (when properly equipped, at least).
The Mazda CX-5 is similarly tech-heavy, but it’s a little tighter inside—even if it’s a lot more fun.
The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has a classy feel and swoopy styling and its optional turbo engine is a hoot.
Subaru’s Forester is also available with a zippy turbo and it scores very well for safety.
The Honda CR-V is hugely popular with consumers and its just-right size and relaxing demeanor are major assets.
Finally, don’t discount the new Chevrolet Equinox with its trio of engines that include a very miserly turbodiesel.
