The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The boxy, old-school appearance might turn you off, but the 2011 Ford Escape still delivers solid crossover and SUV bona fides. The 2011 Jeep Compass, remains a vehicle that looks better on paper—roomy, versatile, and maneuverable, but still lacking in driving refinement and powertrain responsiveness.
