Autoblog answers all your questions about the 2018 Ford Escape

The Ford Escape is right in the thick of the compact SUV segment, with rivals including the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Mazda CX-5, and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. The Escape is perfectly suited to SUV buyers who don't want to give up car-like driving manners. Handling is fun and sporty, something you don't often encounter in the sport-utility segment, no matter size or price point. The ride is firmer than some alternatives, however.

Spy Shots

Ford Focus cues continue inside

The 2020 Ford Escape has been spotted again, and these spy shots give us our first look at the compact crossover SUV's interior. Though it's fairly well covered, the infotainment system is left exposed, and we can make out air vent positioning. The design is very much like that of the 2019 Ford Focus. The infotainment screen sits up high in a tablet-style design with a set of controls below it, and farther below that are the air vents. This layout is almost identical to the Focus.

First Drive

The 2017 Ford Escape is a big improvement on what was an already remarkable crossover, and the customer-focused changes pay dividends to the Escape faithful.
