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.

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

By: 
thecarconnection.com

PROS
Seriously sorted chassis
Determined three-cylinder engine
Excellent interior technology

CONS
Cramped rear seats
Getting expensive for a small SUV
We don't get the ST

By: 
carexpert.com.au

PROS
Fast, terrific dynamics, extremely well-engineered.

CONS
Ride can be a little uncompromising, sub-optimal fuel consumption if you use the performance.

By: 
topgear.com

Not only is the Ford Puma ST one of the most exciting SUVs we’ve ever driven, it’s also immensely practical, comes packed with equipment and undercuts all of its main rivals on price. In other words, the Puma ST is a classic performance car from Ford: fast, fun and fantastic value, making it our favourite Sports SUV.

PROS
Immensely enjoyable to drive
Surprisingly big boot
Great driving position

CONS
Occasionally bouncy low-speed ride
Infotainment could be slicker
A VW T-Roc is bigger in the back
