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 2017 Toyota Prius V is the largest Prius model offered, though it's now also one of the oldest. The 2017 Toyota Prius closes the gap between "driving a hybrid" and "driving a normal car," even though it still looks like nothing else on the road.
