Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport is a good value, but it’s light on performance.

Pros
Good safety tech
Low price
Pleasant styling

Cons
Far from sporty
Slow acceleration
Cramped back seat

By:

Nissan has elevated the styling of the 2020 Rogue Sport with a new front and rear design, LED daytime running lamps, and a redesigned grille and hood that contribute to a much more chiseled look. Nissan also has added two new colors to the Rogue Sport's palette: Nitro Lime Metallic and Monarch Orange Metallic. Additionally, the Nissan Safety Shield 360 suite of driver-assistance technologies that was previously offered on the SV and SL is now a standard feature on all trims. If you're looking to spice things up, Nissan also is offering a new 19-inch wheel design that takes its inspiration from its luxury cousin, the Infiniti QX50.

Pros
Sleek exterior design, efficient powertrain, great standard safety features.

Cons
Sluggish acceleration, coarse engine sounds, lower trims lack some commonly found features.

The 2018 Ford Escape ranked #2 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Ford Escape has a score of 8.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 56 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Sporty handling
Premium interior with user-friendly tech
Good safety score and great predicted reliability rating
Above-average cargo space

Cons
Unimpressive fuel economy

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 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
