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. For the complete story, please visit: http://www.kbb.com/car-news/all-the-latest/2014-compact-suv-comparison-test-its-no-small-thing/2000010638/ *Our comparison tests are different from most in that we keep the focus on comparison, not competition. We don't pick winners and losers because the right choice for one buyer is the wrong choice for another. Our goal here is not to tell you which car to buy, but to make it easier for you to decide which is best for you.
