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. It's hard to imagine a compact crossover better aligned with the needs of most buyers than the 2017 Honda CR-V. There's a RAV4 for just about everyone, and while we applaud Toyota for adding more safety technology for 2017, the competition is worth a good look, too.
