Ford may be looking to continue the Titanic Volume battle they are currently raging with Honda. The Escape and CR-V regularly trade barbs at the top of the crossover market, and it looks like that may be trickling down to subcompact crossovers.

With the HR-V anticipated to be here shortly Ford has been caught red handed running their Ecosports around the US. There are 2 reported sightings so far and personally I think its going to happen. The segment is too desirable to let that volume slip away through non participation...

Looks like this segment is really heating up. The EcoSport, Renegade, and HR-V are all really cool cars that will compete with each other. It should be a very competitive segment.

Are you guys set on the HR-V, or are you going to be considering some of these other entrants?

Im going to be expanding my options.
Wasn't too crazy about american vehicles but the Jeep and even the Ford look quite interesting.

The best thing to do in this case might be to wait for a good portion of all of them to become available and see them in person.

I read this article about how small crossovers are more popular than sedans for the first time ever. In the first two months of the year, CUVs outsold sedans for the first time ever.

"Crossovers have climbed the charts while minivans, station wagons, and frame-based SUVS have retreated," IHS Automotive's Tom Libby wrote in a blog post. "If the trend we have witnessed in the first two months of 2014 continues for the remainder of 2014, it would mark the first time in recent memory - if not ever - that a car segment did not lead the industry. It would also be a watershed moment for crossovers."
The article also says that smaller crossovers may actually hurt the segment because they will steal sales from the larger SUVs and become their own segment.

familes are realizing crossovers are more useful than sedans



with the rear seats folded down you can fit alot in a crossover

where as a sedan.. you have to deal with the tunnel behind the rear seats. its just not as spacious

at times coupes fit more junk than sedans
