Which One of These Newly Introduced Compact SUVs

The 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show has turned out to be THE place to be if you are looking for the latest crop of compact SUVs as no less than three significant debuts took place in the City of Angels including two world premieres, the 2012 Honda CR-V and the 2013 Ford Escape, and one North America presentation, the Mazda CX-5.
And since all three crossovers will compete against each other not only in North America, but around the world as well, we thought it would be good idea to run a poll to determine which is the best looking model. We'll brief you on all three before we give you the chance to cast your vote.

We'll start of alphabetically with the 2013 Ford Escape that will be marketed as the Kuga in other regions, including Europe and China. The 2013 Escape marks a radical departure from the outgoing model not only in looks, but under the hood as well with Ford offering two small displacement turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engines with up to 237HP, alongside a conventional, naturally aspirated 2.5L four-pot.

Next up is the fourth generation of Honda's popular CR-V, which unlike the Ford Escape, represents an evolutionary improvement over its predecessor. The 2012 CR-V continues to be offered in North America with a single engine option, a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine producing 185HP.

Our final contender technically replaces Mazda's rebadged Ford Escape, the Tribute, though the Japanese firm is marketing the CX-5 as a new model. The CX-5 is the first Mazda model to fully encompass the brand's Skyactive Technology and will be available in the States with a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine delivering 155-ponies.
And there you have it. All you have to do now is place your vote below and if you'd like, share your thoughts in the comments section.
