Cars are gradually moving towards compactness in all classes. Manufacturers in 2021 also relied on the SUV segment. These vehicles have been significantly reduced in size without an overall loss of basic performance. They have retained cross-country ability and relative capacity, and also have an increased payload compared to sedans. The American lifestyle implies their use in every family by default, but not all people are ready to use full size in everyday life. Many of them consider this an irrational idea, and this trend is only gaining momentum.
The main advantages of this category
The demand for these cars came for a specific reason. People are tired of large dimensions and gluttonous engines. If a large load capacity is not required, then this is the best option. You will get the following benefits:
1. Small dimensions are optimal for parking space and heavy traffic in big cities. It is a choice for drivers with a poor sense of size.
2. Low fuel consumption with sufficient power. You won't get a lot of revs, but you will get a lot of torque. This will make it easy to get through dirt and drive off when fully loaded.
3. The large enough internal volume will allow you to fit all your luggage and 5 people, which is enough for a long family trip. Especially if you use an additional roof rack.

The compact SUV category is now the cash cow segment for mass-market automakers manufacturers, so much so that 2019 saw the reign of the compact car that has dominated sales in Canada for over two decades - that would be the Honda Civic - come to an end.

Small Compact Suv Models
Toyota's steamroller continues to wreak havoc on th segment. In terms of sales, the RAV4 even relegated the Civic sedan to second place across all vehicle categories (excluding full-size pickups, a cash-cow bonanza unto themselves) last year. Who’d have thunk it?
The Japanese giant has built a solid reputation with its compact SUV, and it helps that the model is available in a variety of versions (gasoline, hybrid and plug-in hybrid, the just-launched RAV4 Prime). It would be very surprising if Toyota's SUV lost its title as the country's best-selling vehicle in 2020, despite the period of inactivity caused by this spring's lockdown.
In 2019, the RAV4 sold for 65,248 units in Canada, while in the U.S., the model recorded no fewer than 448,068 sales.
