The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Ford Escape works well as a crossover SUV, but has the ride and handling of a smartly tuned hatchback. The 2019 Hyundai Tucson hot-swaps one of its 4-cylinder engines, and ups its safety game. The handsome, capable 2019 Kia Sportage does many things well; gas mileage isn’t one of them.
