Consumer Guide First Spin Chevrolet has no fewer than five SUVs in its corporate lineup, yet none fit neatly into the “compact crossover” segment, currently the most popular in all of autodom. None, that is, until now.

Consumer Guide First Spin Already one of our favorite compact crossovers, Mazda’s CX-5 gets a redesign for 2017 that – in virtually every measure – makes it a better choice than ever.

2018 Toyota C-HR

Consumer Guide First Spin At first blush, Toyota’s 2018 C-HR looks all the world like a rakish new entry in the compact-crossover segment, but it’s not. At least, not in the traditional sense.

However, that may depend on how one defines a “crossover.” Despite the fact that roughly 40-50 percent of small SUVs are purchased in front-wheel-drive form, Consumer Guide’s definition has traditionally included the mandate that it has to at least be offered with all-wheel drive, and the C-HR is not … at least, not yet.

The official launch of the redesigned-for-2017 Mazda CX-5 is just around the corner; it’s slated to begin arriving in dealerships later this spring. The new CX-5 represents an evolution of Mazda’s KODO—Soul of Motion design theme, a motif that debuted on the Mazda Shinari concept car of 2010. The new bodywork also bears an obvious family resemblance to the CX-5’s larger sibling—the redesigned-for-2016 Mazda CX-9 midsize SUV.

Consumer Guide First Spin Jeep, a name virtually synonymous with SUVs for more than three-quarters of a century, has hit the mother lode in recent years as buyers suddenly began flocking to that market. And in the hottest segment of that market – compact SUVs – the company has long had three entries, together accounting for half of its entire model portfolio.
