TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Buick Encore was a good choice for city slickers, but it’s showing its age in all the wrong ways The 2020 Ford Ecosport is not particularly good value, not particularly efficient, and not particularly good. The 2020 Hyundai Kona is an eyeful, but has nearly everything crossover buyers want in a city-friendly package.
