Posted at 04:09 AM ET, 07/23/2012's $25,000 Compact SUV Shootout


One of the most popular segments in the auto industry is the compact SUV. Why? It's the mix of practicality, utility, price and now fuel economy. There are three all-new or redesigned compact utes on the market since the Chevy Equinox won our last match-up just 18 months ago.

This time out we set some new rules. The contenders had to get 30 mpg on the highway and have an as-tested price under $25,000, not including the destination charge. Battling it out were:

2012 Chevy Equinox

2013 Ford Escape

2012 Honda CR-V

2012 Hyundai Tucson

2012 Kia Sportage

2013 Mazda CX-5
