The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
5.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Subaru Forester is a well thought-out crossover SUV with exceptional space, a great ride, and standard AWD without a fuel-economy penalty. The 2019 Ford Escape works well as a crossover SUV, but has the ride and handling of a smartly tuned hatchback.
