Which Compact SUV Is Right for You?

The compact crossover and SUV segment offers some of the best-selling vehicles in the country, and most major auto manufacturers work their tails off to make an impact and stand out from the crowd. That means there’s constantly new entries to the category, and even the old standbys are frequently updated with hot new designs and features. If it’s been a few years since you last shopped for a new vehicle, you might be surprised by how much things have changed. No worries, we’re here to help. 

The Toyota RAV4 is a long-time favorite in this class, fully redesigned for the 2019 model year, and it’s currently tied for the third spot at the top of our rankings. The Chevy Equinox, redesigned in 2018, also scores a spot in the top half of our rankings. It’s not quite as formidable a competitor as the RAV4, but it does have its own merits, such as a below-average starting price that might catch your eye. We’re going to help you determine which of these vehicles is the better choice for you, based on the U.S. News scoring methodology in categories that matter most to compact SUV buyers.

Keep in mind that the scores on our site are updated constantly as new expert reviews and data become available. Therefore, the scores mentioned in this slideshow may not match the scores in our reviews.
