You can—and probably will—spend all month test-driving compact crossovers.
The Honda CR-V is the country’s most popular, and it’s easy to see why.
The CR-V delivers a good driving experience with a roomy, flexible interior.
The Ford Escape is greying at its temples but is still a pleasure to drive and is often discounted.
The Mazda CX-5 is the segment’s sports car in every way but acceleration.
It’s roomier this year, too.
Subaru’s popular Forester offers good off-road ability and tremendous flexibility inside, even if it too is showing its age.
And the Nissan Rogue has emerged as one of the segment’s heavy-weights.
Skip its cramped optional third row, though.
