The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Mercury Mariner is the nicest Ford Escape you can buy, but it remains a midpack performer in the crowded compact SUV/crossover class. The 2008 Honda CR-V doesn't have hip style or performance on tap, but it has the security, utility, and frugality that many sensible moms want.
