: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

In addition to SYNC, SE includes automatic headlamps, SiriusXM radio, more exterior chrome accents, fog lights, privacy glass and 17-inch alloy wheels. SEL adds MyFord Touch, heated leather seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, auto-dimming rearview mirror and 18-inch alloy wheels. The top Titanium model gets the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine standard (it's optional on SEL), along with Sony HD radio, remote start and entry, cargo cover, a 110-volt outlet and a power liftgate. All-wheel drive is available on SE and SEL, standard on Titanium and 2.0-liter SEs and SELs.

The Honda CR-V is has more rear seat and cargo room, but its engine is no match for the 2.0-liter EcoBoost. The Chevrolet Equinox has an optional V6 but isn't as fun to drive. The Kia Sportage has a more powerful optional turbo engine, but has a harder ride. And the Volkswagen Tiguan has a nicer interior and more powerful standard engine, but is more expensive.

The Escape comes off well in the face of opposition because it combines the fun-to-drive attributes of a car with the versatility of a crossover. The EcoBoost engines are lively and fuel-efficient, while the available technology features will impress passengers. It's a package that's well-suited to a wide variety of buyers, and will likely continue to be a frequent sight on American roads as the most popular compact crossover.
