The 2020 Toyota RAV4 is in a perennial dogfight with the Honda CR-V for supremacy among compact crossovers.
The CR-V adds a hybrid option this year and its more spacious inside.
The Subaru Forester has standard all-wheel drive and real off-road chops, despite outward appearances.
The Jeep Cherokee looks the off-road part, and plays it too, but can feel a little cheap inside.
Domestic challengers such as the Chevy Equinox offer varying degrees of comfort and quiet, but lack the panache of the RAV4.
The Escape is new this year, also comes as a hybrid, and skews car-like with its looks and shapes, which may be more convenient for empty-nesters.
