Honda gave its CR-V a refresh last year, bringing new style and a new interior layout, but the real story from the Japanese brand is the new HR-V small crossover. Based on the Fit subcompact, the HR-V offers a practical ride with increased ride height.

2016-honda-hr-vMazda is also getting into the small crossover game this year with the new CX-3. Using the brand’s KODO design language and SkyActiv engines, the CX-3 is sure to be a great entrant in the segment.

Lexus rolled out the new NX last year, sitting in the lineup below the larger RX. The new small Lexus crossover offers a small turbocharged engine or a hybrid setup. Rumor has it that Lexus may also bring an even smaller crossover to market.

Lincoln is now in the luxury crossover segment with its new MKC. Based on the Ford Escape, the MKC offers variable dampers and an EcoBoost turbocharged engine to deliver a spirited drive.

2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-ClassNot be left behind, a few German luxury brands have new crossovers coming to market. From Mercedes-Benz we have the GLE Coupe, offering ‘coupe’ styling on a large practical crossover. On the small end of things, Mercedes has also introduced the GLA-Class, an entry-level luxury crossover.

BMW has fully redesigned the X4 and X5, bringing both of these crossovers new looks and updated driving dynamics. For 2015, the brand has added M performance versions, making its large crossovers even crazier.

Nissan has been busy updating both the Murano and the Rogue. The smaller Rogue adopted the new corporate styling along with a CVT for increased fuel economy. On the larger side, the Murano has taken a leap with its new swoopy style, while it also now comes with a CVT.

The small Chevy Trax will be sold in the U.S. for the first time this year, playing in the compact crossover segment. A facelift for the aging Equinox was also revealed for 2015, though mechanically the crossover remains the same.

What’s Coming in Crossovers?

Jaguar is getting set to enter the crossover arena with the upcoming F-Pace. A performance oriented crossover, the F-Pace promises to offer some of the most fun you can get from segment.

2016 Honda HR-V Review

2016 Honda HR-V Review
Honda’s HR-V isn’t first in the burgeoning subcompact crossover segment, but they think it’s the best. Naturally we have an opinion on the matter, but you’ll have to read more to see where we stand.

2016 Fiat 500X Review

2016 Fiat 500X Review
The Fiat 500X is a fashion forward cousin to the Jeep Renegade and the newest contender in the subcompact crossover segment. But does all that add up to a product worth paying for?

2015 Audi Q3 2.0T quattro Tiptronic Review

2015 Audi Q3 2.0T quattro Tiptronic Review
Americans are crossover crazy; we just can’t get enough of these glorified station wagons. Whether it’s their all-season capability, generous cargo capacity or improved fuel economy they have distinct advantages over sedans and traditional SUVs, upsides that account for much of their appeal.

2015 Jeep Renegade Review

2015 Jeep Renegade Review
The Renegade is the latest entry in the burgeoning subcompact SUV segment, and Jeep insists that its bonafides go beyond the Wrangler-inspired styling — they say this is a true “Trail Rated” Jeep. We just had to see that for ourselves.

2015 Honda CR-V vs. 2015 Subaru Forester

2015 Honda CR-V vs. 2015 Subaru Forester
One year ago we put eight compact crossovers in a battle royal to determine which high-riding hatchback is the best in the business. Focusing on comfort, efficiency, value and practicality, a surprise champion emerged; the Subaru Forester.

2015 Volkswagen Touareg TDI Review

2015 Volkswagen Touareg TDI Review
Maybe you’ve noticed the updated Volkswagen Touareg. Scratch that, it’s a safer bet you haven’t seen one of these premium crossovers. Enhanced for 2015 the vehicle gains a variety of features that are sure to please drivers, even if they have a hard time seeing them.
