TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Ford Escape is the softer side of the Blue Oval’s small crossover 1-2 combo. The 2021 Honda CR-V wins hundreds of thousands of wallets each year and it’s no surprise: it’s spacious, comfortable, efficient, and quiet. The 2021 Toyota RAV4 is the meat-and-potatoes crossover for many buyers; the RAV4 Prime supplies the all-electric range.
