The compact SUV has become a ubiquitous part of the automotive landscape. Small crossovers are extremely popular for their SUV-like versatility and their carlike handling and fuel economy. Almost every automaker you can name offers a compact SUV by now, which means there are a ton of desirable used examples that can provide great value for anyone looking for a practical commuter or a small family vehicle.

Here are six great compact SUVs you can find on Autotrader for less than $15,000 in 2020.

2010-2017 Chevrolet Equinox

2010-2017 Chevrolet Equinox

The second-generation Chevy Equinox is a very practical choice among used compact SUVs. It's a comfortable crossover with a nice interior that gets impressive fuel economy from its base engine. This generation of the Equinox is on the bigger side of the compact SUV class, which grants it generous passenger and cargo space compared to most of its competitors. It got a nice facelift in 2016 with a refreshed look and a 7-in touchscreen with a backup camera as standard equipment. Find a Chevrolet Equinox for sale

2013-2019 Ford Escape

2013-2019 Ford Escape

The Ford Escape just got a big redesign for the 2020 model year, and the previous generation represents a good value on the used market. The Escape impresses with good handling, frugal fuel economy, and one of the bigger cargo holds in this class, adding up to a practical compact SUV. The Escape got a facelift in 2017 that gave it a more modern look, a newly available 1.5-liter turbocharged engine and more available technology, including Android Auto and Apple CarPlayFind a Ford Escape for sale

2012-2016 Honda CR-V

2012-2016 Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V is a very popular compact SUV, and with good reason. It's safe, reliable and efficient, and it does just about everything well for a small crossover. It's one of the roomiest SUVs in its class, and it comes generously appointed with standard features. In 2015, the CR-V got better sound insulation, revised suspension and a CVT transmission. These post-facelift models can be found pretty easily for under $15,000. Find a Honda CR-V for sale

2016-2019 Hyundai Tucson

2016-2019 Hyundai Tucson

The Hyundai Tucson is already an excellent value when it's new, and it becomes an even better value once it's used. It was redesigned for its current generation in 2016, and it's aging very well so far. It gets outstanding safety and reliability ratings, a pleasant interior and a gutsy available turbocharged engine that gives it more exciting performance than you might expect. If you can find a turbocharged example in this price range, it's a great buy. Find a Hyundai Tucson for sale

2014-2018 Jeep Cherokee

2014-2018 Jeep Cherokee

If you're looking for a practical compact crossover that's a little on the rugged side, then you'll want to check out the Jeep Cherokee. The Cherokee name was reintroduced in 2014, and it delivers impressive off-road capability when it's equipped with all-wheel drive, making it worthy of its storied Jeep name. You can also get one with a V6 engine, which has become uncommon in this segment. Find a Jeep Cherokee for sale

2013-2016 Mazda CX-5

2013-2016 Mazda CX-5

The Mazda CX-5 may not offer big horsepower numbers, but it's an athletic option among compact crossovers. The vehicle's handling is very sharp, and it has a standard manual transmission, which is very rare for this segment. It also returns great fuel economy and a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder upgrade became available in 2014 if you're looking for a little more oomph from under the hood. If you want a small crossover that's practical but not boring, this Mazda is a great choice. Find a Mazda CX-5 for sale
