The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
Although the 2010 Jeep Compass strikes out on design, with an anonymous look that fails to be either sleek or rugged, it has decent performance, good safety, and some standout features. Though it looks decidedly old-school, the Ford Escape is a solid and stylish five-passenger, compact SUV that has been kept up-to-date.
