Credit Ford for tapping its global vehicle inventory to bring Americans a compact crossover fully competitive with any in the world – and better than most for road manners and interior materials. But this design is beginning to show its age, not just in styling but in cabin layout and roominess. In this class, the RAV4 and CR-V set the bar high for space and utility, the Jeep Cherokee for off-road prowess, the Subaru Forester for all-around virtue, and the CX-5 for design and engineering sophistication. Still, Escape’s blend of assets and the willingness of Ford and its dealers to work with you on pricing should earn it a place on your shopping list.
