The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.7
6.2
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 Mitsubishi Outlander is an affordable three-row crossover that deserves a look from those looking beyond the usual suspects.
