Higher price this year

Nissan hasn't changed anything on its smallest crossover for 2019. The Kicks was all-new for 2018 and replaced the quirky Juke.

Pros
Wonderfully efficient powertrain,
Costco-size cargo space,
charming design.

Cons
Slow in our testing,
driver-assistance features limited to the basics,
warranty is nothing special.

Pros
High fuel economy estimates
Larger-than-average cargo capacity
Inexpensive compared to rivals

Cons
Leisurely acceleration
All-wheel drive isn't available
Missing a few desirable features

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.
