According to a recent article at USA Today, it is predicted that by year’s end, the compact SUV will be the most popular type of vehicle for consumers. In fact, now there was a $28,000 challenge going on, sponsored by Cars.com, MotorWeek, and USA Today, and the winner was announced on Tuesday, May 26. Who were the contenders for the compact SUV challenge?
One that’s noticeably missing from the group is the Ford Escape. Although the automaker was invited to the challenge, Ford apparently could not locate a model that met the criteria to participate in the challenge. The criteria includes a price tag of no more than $28,000, which includes shipping fee, and a 26 mpg government rating or higher for combined highway/city driving cycle. Those who did make the list include:
2015 Chevrolet Equinox 1LT
2015 GMC Terrain SLE-1
2015 Honda CR-V EX
2016 Mazda CX-5 Touring
2015 Nissan Rogue SV
2015 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium
2015 Toyota RAV4
The winner of the challenge was announced on the Cars.com site and USA Today on Tuesday!
