The subcompact-crossover segment is arguably one of the most loaded segments in the market right now. A lot of customers—first-time buyers or otherwise—are now looking to these vehicles for their next purchases because of their near-SUV size but also near-sedan pricing.
We recently took three of the biggest names in this space for our latest Big Test. This comparo, however, isn’t your usual head-to-head. We took the Nissan Kicks e-Power, the Toyota Corolla Cross GR-S, and the Honda HR-V Turbo for this outing—two different hybrid systems and one turbocharged gasoline powertrain. It’s quite the interesting three-way bout.

The Kicks arrived with Nissan’s new e-Power technology sometime last year. The Corolla Cross, meanwhile, has been in the market for quite some time. It has that familiar nameplate with similar hybrid powertrain as the Corolla Altis Hybrid’s. The all-new HR-V, of course, also landed sometime in 2022 with both naturally-aspirated and turbocharged options.
This time around, we had our guys Anton Andres, Leandre Grecia, and Niky Tamayo do all the driving (and talking). After a series of tests, which of these do you think came out on top? Click on the embedded video above to learn more.
