sgCarMart – Roomy and comfortable, versatile yet affordable, manoeuverable and increasingly fuel efficient, compact crossovers are becoming the talk of the town. These cars can easily ferry kids to school, bring groceries home, and still provide enough space for a weekend getaway.
The Mazda CX-5 made a slightly late foray into the crossover market in 2012, but it was Mazda's first vehicle to employ the full suite of innovative SkyActiv technologies, and also the first Mazda to feature the brand's new design language - 'KODO: Soul Of Motion', allowing it to gain popularity really fast.
The Nissan Qashqai is something of an old timer, part of the early crossover craze back in 2007. While the first generation of the compact crossover came with both a five-seater and a seven-seater variant (conveniently called the Qashqai+2) in Singapore and had achieved decent recognition, Nissan isn't willing to rest on its laurels and recently introduced the new Qashqai with five seats only.
Similarly, Volkswagen launched the Tiguan in 2007, matching the appeal of the Mk6 Golf hatchback it is based on with the versatility of an SUV. The German compact crossover went on to receive a facelift in 2011 as well as a performance tweak earlier this year, which brought it in line with the rest of Volkswagen's lineup.
