Summary: We assembled a group of six leading compact SUVs and took them through their paces on a two-day road trip from Irvine, California, to Mesa, Arizona. Since these vehicles now appeal to a wide bandwidth of buyers, each vehicle's strengths and weaknesses demonstrate how they are targeted to various subsets that exist within this growing category. To get a better idea of which model is right for you, have a look at KBB's video overview of our annual compact SUV comparison test.
