Small crossover No. 1: Chevrolet Equinox
Roll-out: Now
Price: $23,185
Fuel economy: 22 city, 32 hwy with 4-cyl.

"SUV" has become a naughty word, but Americans are still buying them, especially smaller, more fuel-efficient car-based crossover SUVs.

To meet that need, Chevrolet is rolling out a new, redesigned Equinox. Buyers will be able to choose either a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder or 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine

With the 4-cylinder engine, the Equinox will get 32 mpg on the highway. That's 4 mpg better than a Toyota Rav-4 and 5 mpg better than a Honda CR-V.

Another pleasant surprise: the starting price for the new Equinox will actually be slightly lower than today's version.

NEXT: Mid-sized car: Buick LaCrosse
