The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.3
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Ford Escape foregoes a bit of utility in the name of style and sportiness, making it one of the better crossovers 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.
