Small sport-utility vehicles are in a big growth market. Sales of compact SUVs soared to more than 500,000 units in calendar year 2006, up 34 percent over 2005 levels. By some estimates, this segment will double from its current level by 2010, and triple by 2016. With that in mind, it's no surprise that every automaker is busy developing a compact SUV - or two.
