"Far more flexible than a sedan but more affordable, maneuverable and fuel-efficient than a full-size SUV, today's compact SUV is a masterful mix of style and practicality," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com. "And it's an exciting time to be shopping the segment, because eight of this year's 10 handpicked standouts are totally redesigned or first-ever models.  We ranked the perennially popular Honda CR-V No. 1 because it is so outstandingly reliable and exceptionally easy to get along with."
