The Hyundai Tucson used to be one of the smallest compact SUVs, but not any more. With the Venue and Kona now below, it has leapfrogged much of its competition to indeed become of the biggest compact SUVs.

This falls right in between the Honda CR-V at 39.2 and Toyota RAV4 at 37.5. As I discovered in my luggage test comparison of those two, there was effectively no capability difference between the two: mostly the CR-V's cargo area is taller, the RAV4's longer.
