TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Ford Escape gives up a little comfort and utility in its quest to be the most exciting crossover SUV to drive. The 2016 Honda CR-V has its priorities in the right place, with lots of space and features—but performance takes a back seat. The 2016 Toyota RAV4 is a competent crossover utility with a new Hybrid model this year, updated safety systems, and lots of interior space.
