Best small SUV for about $27,000?

I'd like some help on buying a small SUV for about $25,000-$27,000. I've test driven the Mitsubishi ASX and Mazda CX-3. I'm not sure about the new Honda HR-V so would like your views. I like the Mazda but I think that the engine stop-start is just another thing to go wrong.

There's nothing to worry about with start-stop technology. It's been around for years and everybody has it. As for your choices, I'd put the CX-3 well ahead of the ASX and just in front of the HR-V but I wouldn't buy either. For me, a mid-level Mazda3 is bigger than the CX-3, has more power, more room and is better to drive.
