We Rank the Best Compact and Subcompact SUVs From the 2016 Model Year

It seems nearly everyone today is looking for an SUV. If you are one of those people, but are uneasy due to the price, a subcompact or compact SUV is likely the best option for you. They provide more space and versatility than a car, but are still reasonably affordable.

In terms of seating, you aren’t going to get more passenger space than most cars, since these 2-row SUVs all seat five passengers. However, you may get a bit more headroom, and there will surely be extra space for cargo. Small SUVs offer respectable fuel economy and are generally fun to drive.

Whether you are looking for the most interior or cargo space, the best performance, or the most well-rounded small SUV, there is likely a vehicle here that will fit your lifestyle.
