The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Nissan Rogue may have a small third row, but it's a better car than the previous generation in virtually every way. With athletic looks and the performance to match, plus a roomy interior and loads of available cabin tech and convenience features, the 2015 Ford Escape is bolder and more exciting than most rivals, without much compromise.
