The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
6.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Ford Escape Hybrid is a viable and sturdy contender in the family crossover arena. Gas mileage is excellent for a compact SUV, and optional mechanical all-wheel drive sets it apart from softer competitors. 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.
