Any other Urban SUV models out there besides Nissan Juke and Subaru Crosstrek?

We are in the market for a second car and the wife has settled on the Urban SUV. So far we have identified 2 models that we both like: Nissan Juke and Subaru Crosstrek.

I am just wondering if there is any other import, non-luxury Urban SUV out there that you can recommend? We are planning to test drive them soon and appreciate your feedback.

Thanks.

P.S. We may as well test drive the BMW X1 but it is out of our league ;)

Somwhat bigger and more expensive than either of the other two, I believe.

If she's willing to wait, during 2015, Honda and Mazda should start to sell their HR-V and CX-3 respectively.

Kia Soul, Kia Rondo (maybe?), new Lexus NX (probably too much $$), Fiat 500x (available sometime in the future)

Jeep Cherokee. Test drove it and liked it but ended up with a Grand Cherokee for the room.

Don't know why, I'm a Mitsubishi fan but I hate the RVR as much as the juke...

Wouldn't the mini clubman and be a station waggon, not an SUV?

Hyundai Tucson and Nissan Rogue are another couple of options.
