The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
Value—not trend-setting design or class-leading performance—is the reason to keep the 2010 Kia Sportage on your list. Don’t let the 2010 Ford Escape’s boxy, old-school appearance turn you off; the Escape is a solid, fuel-efficient choice for city-dwelling families.
