The subject of SUV rankings is a hot topic with a lot of drivers. SUVs, or small utility vehicles, are all over the road in big numbers. Some of the reasons they are growing in popularity are their fuel economy, durability, and styling. We took a look at SUV rankings to see how the manufacturers stacked up against one another.

First, we started with the manufacturer’s side of things. Who made the best compact SUV? Ford was close, but not by much. It was the only brand that made more than one crossover utility vehicle; it also had a limited number of trucks. In terms of passenger volume, Toyota got the best score, though, so it may come as a surprise that they lead the entire off-road segment in SUV sales. You can find such rankings on some of the top rating sites online.
