The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
6.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Honda CR-V may be light on personality, but this compact crossover checks off every other box. It’s a very smart choice. The 2018 Ford Escape has the road manners of another kind of car—but don't worry, it still works well as a crossover.
