The base model of this five-seat, compact crossover starts at just under $17,000 and still comes with loads of standard luxury, safety and tech features. It's fun to drive and comes with a turbo option. It lacks an all-wheel-drive option but comes with a roomier interior than years past. The tech package includes an 8-inch touchscreen with navigation, blind-spot monitoring, HID headlights, Harman/Kardon audio system with speaker lights, a heated steering wheel, power-adjustable and heated front seats, heated outboard rear seats, LED fog and taillights and power-folding exterior mirrors.
