1999 Escort New Car Test Drive
With its rakish design, the Ford Escort ZX2 is one of the hottest-looking compacts on the market. It's a true coupe, not just a sedan with two doors. Yet its handsome interior reveals a roomy back seat and surprisingly large trunk.
Its looks are backed up by responsive handling and excellent road manners. The engine provides substantially more power than what's available in the family-oriented Escort sedans. It's also affordable and economical-a great combination.
