The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Ford Escape Hybrid remains a solid, competitive entry among compact family SUVs and crossovers. Its fuel efficiency is superb, and the optional mechanical all-wheel drive sets it apart from any other AWD hybrid crossover. The 2010 Honda CR-V is a bit homely, but it fits right in for those placing the priority on frugality, safety, and interior space. The 2010 Hyundai Tucson doesn't quite take the title of best small crossover, but it handily grabs "most improved" honors.
