No rival matches the 2020 Escape for the breadth of its underhood options.
The Toyota RAV4 has SUV styling and its hybrid is rated at 40 mpg combined.
The Honda CR-V lacks a hybrid option, but its interior is tops for spaciousness and its optional turbo-4 delivers good, if not blistering acceleration.
The Subaru Forester’s value and features are impressive, as are its massive cargo bay.
Look to the Chevy Equinox for a low base price, but don’t look for its former turbodiesel option, which has been deleted.
The Mazda CX-5 prioritizes sporty handling and turbo power over a spacious interior, so it may wind up being the Escape’s most direct rival.
