1- Renault Duster
The Duster is a fairly inferior car in contrast to other similar SUVs, which hasn’t stopped it from being immensely popular in Russia and Europe.
The automobile is made in Russia under the Renault brand name, as we’d like to remind our readers. Dacia is the brand name of the automobile that is produced in Europe.
In comparison to other automobiles on our rating list (save for the Chevrolet Niva), the inside of this auto-crossover is pretty bad, and the technical attributes themselves are not particularly appealing to buy this car.
It’s only an approximation, but here’s the price: It’s effective!
The price of this crossover affects everything at once. Due to the car’s low price, buyers are willing to overlook practically all of its shortcomings.
2- Jeep Renegade
Few of us (you) are aware that the Renegade and Fiat 500X automobiles are quite comparable in terms of technology.
There is a lot of overlap between the two vehicles. The only thing worth mentioning here is that the Jeep vehicle still appears to be far more favorable than the equivalent Fiat vehicle.
Furthermore, when it comes to purchasing a car, this American automaker provides additional options.
The cars themselves are also available for purchase: -two with gasoline engines and two with diesel power units, which are currently available on the Fiat 500x model car.
However, an SUV with 170-horsepower turbocharged petrol and diesel engines is also available.
3- Mazda CX-3
Mazda has also opted to compete for the wallets of clients shopping for and wanting to acquire a compact SUV car.
Engineers at the business created a unique variant of the CX-3 automobile for this purpose.
So, friends, look for it shortly in all vehicle showrooms across our country.
The vehicle will be powered by a 1.5-liter diesel engine with 105 horsepower, as well as 2.0-liter petrol engines with 120 and 150 horsepower.
All-wheel drive and front-wheel drive options are offered in the auto-crossover.

5- Opel Mokka
If your friends love German vehicle manufacturers and you want to buy a small used crossover car, you should think about the Opel Mokka.
This car is highly popular in the United States now, and it is just starting to acquire appeal in Russia.
Citizens who adore Volkswagen automobiles usually buy Opel cars if they can’t find them or if they can’t find what they’re looking for.
Because the firm (conglomerate) “VW” does not have a car in this sector, the appeal of the Opel auto-crossover all over the world is clear.
6- Chevrolet Niva
Chevrolet Niva is an SUV. No, we haven’t made any mistakes in our rating of the top compact auto-crossovers.
It’s important to include this domestic model in our rankings despite its dated exterior and interior styling, as well as its other strong points.
To remind our readers, this SUV is made by a joint venture between AvtoVAZ and Chevrolet (the parent company of General Motors).
Since 2002, this tiny crossover has been available in the United States automotive markets. A new generation of this iconic crossover is currently being developed.
A 1.8-liter engine will power the vehicle. So, it would be great if you could look for a used Chevrolet Niva that would entirely fit your budget!

And one diesel engine with a power output of 120 horsepower. Note that all-wheel drive is only offered with a 140-horsepower engine.

The ix25 model was unveiled for the first time at the Beijing Motor Show in the spring of last year. The model was initially created for China.
The length of this model is greater than that of the Opel Mokka.
If you don’t like the ix35 because of its size, but you still enjoy and prefer the Hyundai brand over other brands, then you should get an ix25 model automobile.
9- Mini Countryman
Fiat? No. Honda? No, it does not. Is it because you despise these cars, or is it for another reason? Looking for a more compact yet high-quality car product?
