The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
With athletic looks and the performance to match, plus a roomy interior and loads of available cabin tech and convenience features, the 2015 Ford Escape is bolder and more exciting than most rivals, without much compromise. The 2015 Nissan Rogue may have a small third row, but it's a better car than the previous generation in virtually every way.
