Default The CUV market, what's good?

So, the fiance wants a new car. Which I'm fine with, as she drives a basic bitch '08 Focus. She has fallen in love with the new '16+ Hyundai Tucson. So at the auto show when browsed a little more. Most likely be in the used market.

Hit list 2016+:

Hyundai Tucson Limited 1.6t AWD
Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring AWD
Nissan Rogue (blah blah didn't follow much)
Jeep Compass (Trailhawk or Limited)
Ford Escape ecoboost AWD
Honda CRV

Anyone own these have any feedback? Possibly @Bru?

Thanks

We are a bit out still, wedding is soon (3/17) so we might look to by within 6mo to a year. Gotta fix some finances first.

Another option is the new Sante Fe, which looks pretty sharp from the pics.

If you're sticking with CUV's, the CRV is most likely going to be your best bet.

Now, if you're looking to get into a bigger "SUV", the Santa Fe would be a good option as a 7-seater. Otherwise, Explorer, etc.

I bought a '17 Escape Titanium w/ the 2.0 Ecoboost and AWD in August and I love it. It's comfortable, handles nicely, and is pretty quick with the 2.0 turbo engine. The intelligent 4wd works well and made it easy to drive in last week's snow storm. The only complaint, which isn't a big deal to me, is fuel economy. I average 20 mpg mixed city and highway. I'm sure there are others in it's class that could do better in that area.

my wife's crv would likely be slower than that

but it's at a lifetime average of 29mpg... and every time i hand calculate it, it's dead nuts on.

I will say the escape was an improvement in fuel economy over my Chrysler 200 with the 3.6 v6. I only averaged 18 mpg mixed driving in that car.

Tucson wasn't tested because it did poorly in our last comparison. The dual clutch is miserable in that car.

Same. We have a 2012 Impreza hatch and it is utterly gutless. Not even from a "fun" standpoint. Just passing or merging into traffic.

They're good. Not as much cargo room as other compacts, and expensive, but they're super fun (styling, colors, easter eggs) and a hoot to drive. They are really small, though, compared with a CR-V or Tiguan.

CX-5 or CRV.

Rogues with that CVT is just meh all over for me.

Our Cx-5 has been great, 27mpg average driving 60 miles a day on 90 in traffic, comfy planted ride. Cr-v has android auto/apple play so it wins there I just couldn't wheel and deal like I could for the CX-5. My Mom has a 2013 and I have a 2012 mazda3 with basically nothing other than regular maintenance.

buying that fiat re-badge would be cutting your dick off, not the other way around.

Hence why they are cool chick cars. Look at who drives trailhawks, mostly women.
