From being a virtual non-existent segment, the compact SUV has become the most active sector in the automobile market. Once considered the undisputed king of the segment, Renault's Duster is now trying to desperately make a comeback, while the smaller Ford EcoSport has become the toast of the season. To make matters worse for the French car maker, its Japanese partner, Nissan, has taken out a better lookalike, the Terrano.
With Terrano's launch, it would be worthwhile to compare the crossovers on the road. We look at how the trio of Terrano, Duster and EcoSport fare against each other. Many may ask why the EcoSport is included in this comparison since it belongs to a lower price segment. The truth is the Ford is both a sedan and a compact SUV killer.
