Compact urban crossovers are one of the most popular car segments these days. Naturally, buyers and owners of such cars are interested in how durable they are. A study on the reliability of small crossovers was published by the British website WhatCar.
The main criterion of the rating is the percentage of cars without breakdowns during their operation. It is noteworthy that the two leaders have an ideal score of 100%. Electronics failures are the most common.

- Honda HR-V – 100% auto without breakdowns;
