Good safety score and great predicted reliability rating

The Escape is fundamentally unchanged for 2018, but there are some tweaks to the lineup and to its standard-equipment offerings.The SEL comes standard with leather-trimmed seating, a power liftgate, heated exterior mirrors, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and LED running lights.

Pros
Graceful turbocharged 2.0-liter engine,
smooth ride,
attractive and intuitive infotainment system.

Cons
Less rear-seat and cargo space than the class leaders,
turbo engines return mediocre fuel economy.

The 2018 Ford Escape has the road manners of another kind of car—but don't worry, it still works well as a crossover.

Pros
Tough-hatch lines
Ample cargo bin
Wonderfully taut handling
Tech options aplenty
Brisk 2.0-liter acceleration

Cons
Busy, space-robbing dash
Firm seats, if you’re not into that
Not much SUV, if you’re into that
Optimistic EPA ratings

It doesn’t really do sharp handling, it’s not quite big enough to match the best in class for practicality, nor does it come with seven seats. Yet don’t overlook the C5 Aircross if those limitations don’t worry you, because it has a lot of other things going for it; its ride is superb on most roads, it cruises along supremely quietly, it has a reasonable purchase price and very reasonable running costs.

Pros
Mostly a super-smooth ride
Quiet inside at speed
Frugal engines

Cons
Wallowy handling
No seven-seat option
Question marks of Citroën's reliability

By: 
whatcar.com

The C5 Aircross is Citroen's (late) leap onto the family-crossover bandwagon.A plug-in hybrid arrives early in 2020. The big draw with that one will be better fuel economy for commuting, and lower tax. Interestingly Citroen elected to make its PHEV front-drive only to keep the price down. Whereas Peugeot, which sells 3008s at a higher price, went for a more expensive PHEV system with 4WD via an extra rear-mounted motor.

Pros
Very comfortable in all sorts of ways.
Looks different.
No sporty pretence

Cons
No sporty actuality.
Ride not as consistent as billed.
Occasionally irritating screen system
