TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Ford Escape has the road manners of another kind of car—but don't worry, it still works well as a crossover. The 2018 Jeep Compass makes some compromises in size and power, but its Trailhawk model hits the crossover-SUV sweet spot. The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is old, crude, slow, and far from fuel-efficient, though it is cheap; buyers can likely do better.
