What's the Most Affordable Compact SUV for 2014?

2014NissanRogue

If you're shopping for a compact SUV, the bevy of competitive options to choose from may overwhelm you. Since our last comparison test in 2012 new models from Jeep, Nissan and Toyota have gone on sale, and they're selling quite well.

One other thing that has changed recently: Most models in this segment come with relatively well-equipped base levels, or with just a few options selected. That makes finding the most affordable versions easier, but it's not a simple task.

We've done the hard part and compiled the right trim levels that deliver expected features in this class and included the cost of gas over five years to determine the most affordable compact SUV amongst the ranks.

Ford Escape Again Walks Away With 'Most-Stolen' Title

2013FordEscape

As stolen SUVs go, crooks are still most likely to abscond with the Escape. Once again, the Ford Escape topped the National Insurance Crime Bureau's list of most-stolen SUVs and crossovers. The Des Plaines, lll.-based nonprofit today released the 2014 SUV hot list, which examines model-year 2011-13 SUV and crossover thefts that occurred between Jan. 1, 2010, and Dec. 31, 2013.

Ford Escape Tops List of Most-Stolen SUVs

According to the NICB, a total of 21,711 SUVs and crossovers were reported stolen in that time; that's up from just less than 20,000 on the list released in February 2013. The consistently coveted Escape did its share in making up the difference in the increase. At 1,421 thefts, the Escape logged 407 more thefts than reported in the 2013 list, a nearly 29 percent spike. Ford also dominates the balance of the top three, with 1,140 Edge thefts and 958 Explorer thefts.

2014NissanRogue

The 2014 Nissan Rogue crossover has occupied the top spot now for weeks on end, and even after brief absences in its four months on the roster, it has managed to muscle its way back to No. 1. Another popular crossover, the 2014 Honda CR-V, gives the Rogue a run for its money, though, checking in at No. 2. And way down at No. 10, a 2015 model joins the list for the first time in the Volvo V60 wagon. Check out what else was popular:

2014 Honda CR-V Review

CRVreview

In Cars.com's Chicago home base, options abound for our famed deep-dish pizza, but one in particular, Giordano's, stuffs enough universally accessible qualities into its pies to make it a down-the-middle crowd pleaser. Therefore, it's the one out-of-towners always seem to know. Well, the best-selling Honda CR-V is the Giordano's of crossovers, and the 2014 version is no exception. Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays touts a sprightly powertrain, improved ride quality, and competitive mileage and cargo space. Could a poor crash-test performance quell buyers' CR-V cravings? Read Mays' review and decide.

Honda Is a Net Exporter, Sort Of

Honda_net_exporter

You might have heard that Honda is a net U.S. exporter, sending more U.S.-built cars to international markets than it imports into the U.S. for sale. But don't take the news at face value.

Here's why. The automaker, which includes the Honda brand and its Acura luxury division, declared itself a "net exporter in the U.S. for the first time" on Tuesday by virtue of shipping more U.S.-built cars to international markets than it imported to the U.S. in 2013. 

But it only counts imports from Japan — which accounted for 88,537 cars in 2013 — in that tally. Those Japan imports fell below the 108,705 cars that Honda shipped out of the U.S. in 2013, excluding cars sent to Canada. The infographic above is provided by Honda and the line "Honda exported more cars from the U.S. than it imported from Japan" is correct.

American-Made Index: Which Automakers Affect the Most U.S. Workers?

That means Honda exported more cars from the U.S., excluding exports to Canada, than it imported from Japan alone in 2013. Did it export more cars from the U.S. than it imported from all countries? Honda won't say, but it's unlikely.
