The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.0
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. Kia hits game reset, and gives the 2011 Sportage an appealing new look and feel.
