More on Luxury Compact SUVs

Luxury compact SUV buyers, like those in most other classes of SUVs, generally like the benefit of a high seating position, which means easy entry and exit, as well as a commanding view of the road. Top luxury SUVs tend to be more comfortable and have higher-quality interior materials than more affordable options. They also offer a vast amount of standard and optional convenience and safety equipment.

Regarding performance, some luxury compact SUVs offer a thrilling ride, while others provide a more balanced ride, delivering more comfort than agility.

Safety scores should only be compared between vehicles of similar size and weight. Larger, heavier vehicles generally provide more protection than smaller, lighter ones.
