Small SUVs aren't built on a passenger chassis like crossover vehicles (CUVs), so even compact SUVs are actually considered trucks. However, compact SUVs boast better fuel economy and sedan-like handling unlike their full-sized SUV brethren. What these more compact SUVs bring to the transportation table is decent towing capacity, roomy interiors (some can seat up to eight) and large cargo spaces. Plus, small SUVs get better overall fuel economy and are loaded with advanced safety technology. Check out GAYOT's list of the Top 10 Small SUVs that ranges from luxe selections from Mercedes-Benz and Alfa Romeo to sporty and affordable options from Hyundai and Mazda.
