The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.6
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 Nissan Rogue offers excellent fuel economy, an upscale interior, and a smooth, but uninspired ride. The available third-row seat is too small for most buyers.
