2019 Jeep Cherokee

Other Contenders

The compact SUV class is loaded with excellent vehicles. If neither the Forester nor the CR-V appeal to you, there are several other vehicles you should consider. 

Shoppers looking for a great handling SUV should look at the 2019 Mazda CX-5, with its sharp handling and position at the top of our compact SUV ranking. The 2019 Toyota RAV4 is completely redesigned. Like the Forester, it comes standard with a plethora of advanced driver assistance and safety technologies, plus it has an excellent predicted reliability rating. 

Buyers who intend to keep their cars for the long-haul should consider the 2020 Kia Sportage, 2020 Hyundai Tucson, and 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan. All three have predicted reliability scores that are well above average, as well as longer warranties than most class competitors. 

If you need a compact SUV that excels off-road or in seriously inclement weather, the 2019 Jeep Cherokee and 2019 Jeep Wrangler offer class-leading performance in places the Forester and CR-V fear to tread.
