The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Don’t let the 2010 Ford Escape’s boxy, old-school appearance turn you off; the Escape is a solid, fuel-efficient choice for city-dwelling families. The 2008 Hyundai Tucson no longer stands out in its class for performance or safety, but it’s still a great value.
