Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

The T-Roc may be among the most significant of many new Volkswagen models, even if it won’t be sold in the United States in the foreseeable future. It’s a new crossover that is roughly the same size as the Golf and is based on the same MQB architecture. For now, at least, the Golf will remain the mainstay of the brand’s lineup, but those within the company who are concerned with sales-growth rates are far more interested in the crossover-SUV segment nearly everywhere on the globe.

Pros
Golf-like driving dynamics,
decent packaging,
adventurous design (for VW).

Cons
Only average interior quality,
firm ride,
we likely won’t get it.

The T-Roc is a small family car that blends the high driving position and big boot of an SUV with the economical engines from a conventional small car. It is quite expensive, however…

Pros
More comfortable than alternatives
Well equipped as standard
Decent range of engines

Cons
Cheap-feeling interior plastics
Alternatives are cheaper
Back seats could be more spacious

By:

The Volkswagen T-Roc looks good, drives well and offers plenty of space, but it's pricey and some rivals have a nicer interior.

Pros
Easy to personalise
Good to drive
Stylish

Cons
Expensive
Interior quality issues
Rivals offer better value
