Best Small SUVs of 2020

The small SUV market has grown rapidly over the last couple of years. Compared with its sedan counterpart, the compact SUV provides an elevated view of the road, a bit more off-road ability thanks to the availability of all-wheel-drive combined with a raised ride height, and a generally larger cargo area. Plus, there’s lots of curbside appeal to be had in this segment of the market. As you likely already know, there’s an abundance of choice when shopping around for new small SUVs.

We’ve reviewed the compact crossovers to uncover the best of them all. From styling to technology, comfort, performance, and interior ergonomics, our thorough assessments allow us to confidently recommend the top-rated small SUVs that stand out from the rest. Before that smooth-talking salesman beguiles you into getting something that may not be the best fit for you, peruse our list of the leading small SUVs on sale to ensure that your final decision is an informed one.
