If you need the maximum amount of cargo room in your small SUV, turn to the roomier Honda CR-V or Toyota RAV4. The Mazda CX-5 is arguably the most stylish in this segment, is a bit more fun to drive, and is set to offer a diesel compact SUV variant.
What's New for 2018
The Ford Escape SUV is updated for 2018 with a new trim level, the SEL that brings amenities including leather seats, power tailgate and 8-inch infotainment system that works with CarPlay and Android Auto. SE models get heated front seats, while the Titanium now comes exclusively with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbocharged engine.
