crossovers with­panache

Austin American-Statesman - - FRONT PAGE -

Pete Szi­lagyi drives Nis­san’s Rogue, right, and Mit­subishi’s Out­lander and finds lots to like about these wee SUVs

Tar­get au­di­ence: Cross­over shop­pers look­ing for some­thing dif­fer­ent (not a Honda or Toy­ota) but not too dif­fer­ent; driv­ers who like the view of the road and flex­i­bil­ity of SUVs but don’t need to carry much more than peo­ple, pets and shop­ping cargo

Highs: Value, han­dling, ride, cabin de­sign, per­son­al­ity, styling

Lows: Rear vis­i­bil­ity, cargo ca­pac­ity, no rear seat­back re­cline ad­just­ment

Bot­tom line: A pleas­ant, com­pe­tent lit­tle

SUV EPA rat­ing for pol­lut­ing emis­sions (10 is best): 6
