The 2020 Ford Escape comes with front wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed automatic, electrically variable-speed automatic.The Ford Escape is fully redesigned.Hybrid version is back after a prolonged absence.Improved power and acceleration.

Pros
Updated style and interior design
Powertrain options range from sporty performance to efficient hybrid
Sliding second-row seats improve passenger room and cargo utility
Sleek, new rear liftgate design compromises some cargo capacity

By:

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 2020 Ford Escape was overdue for a redesign, but the new model trades style for powertrain choices.

Pros
Lots of engine choices
Clean interior design
Good standard safety gear

Cons
Light on cargo space
We’re waiting for mpg ratings
Bland styling

Not only is the ID.4 a brand new nameplate for the Volkswagen brand, it's also the first in a series of all-electric model which will combine to create the ID subbrand.The ID.4 is a practical electric alternative to gas-powered SUVs but lacks the excitement you might expect from an EV.

PROS
Roomy cabin,
smooth ride,
decent driving range.

CONS
Lacks driving verve,
fussy infotainment interface,
anonymous styling.

The 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 is all-new all-electric SUV,about as much interior space as VW's Tiguan, an estimated range for rear-wheel-drive models of 250 miles and Kicks off the first generation of the ID.4 for 2021.

Pros
Lots of helpful safety and technology features come standard
Spacious interior with lots of small-item storage
Impressive real-world range and electrical efficiency

Cons
Some controls can be difficult to operate
Low-quality cabin plastics cheapen the experience

By:

The 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 gives families the right formula for saying farewell to tailpipe emissions, but the cabin tech could use some smoothing over.

PROS
Good passenger and cargo space
Quiet, smooth ride
Lots of features for the money
Free road-trip charging for three years

CONS
Laggy infotainment
Clumsy capacitive controls
Grabby brakes
