There’s no shortage of 5-seat compact SUVs on the market. And it’s no wonder they’re so remarkably popular.

There’s no need to look beyond the all-weather year-round practicality that you’ll find in an SUV, but the perks of this compact and peppy style are endless. A high seating position makes for an easy step-in height and a commanding view of the road. A smaller design compared to the larger SUV and crossover counterparts makes driving, parking, and maneuverability a breeze. Add in ample cargo space and ground clearance and you have a winning combination. Plus, they’re just a pleasure to drive.

With so many options how do you know which one to choose? We’ve curated a list of the five most popular compact 5-seat SUVs to help you wade through all the information out there: the Kia Sportage, the Nissan Rogue, the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, and the Mazda CX-5.
