Six-Way Compact Crossover Battle
Ford Escape vs. Honda CR-V vs. Mazda CX-5 vs. Subaru Forester vs. Toyota RAV4 vs. VW Tiguan.Tall is the new normal. Americans bought roughly 8.5 million SUVs in 2019, making it by far the biggest single vehicle category. Some 2.9 million of those were compact crossovers from mainstream manufacturers, and no wonder: They're reasonably priced and good for just about every domestic task, from the dreaded family road trip to a weekend Home Depot run. There's a reason why there are now 16 vehicles in the segment, and that's reason enough to sort out the best from the rest.

implies the Hoonifox could become real at some point, with a "rally-spec" all-wheel-drive system and possibly a turbocharged Ecoboost V6 engine, an electrified drivetrain or a V8. Call us purists, but we think this would do best with a 5.0 in it, and the badge to boot.
Here's hoping it becomes real as soon as possible.
