The Ford Escape sits slightly under the Rogue and Forester offering a sensible 29 highway mpg rating while further promoting 22 mpg for in-city driving as delivered through its 2.5-liter engine.

Last but not least, the Honda CR-V offers all the agility you could need on the highway and through the city while further offering a capable Real Time All-Wheel-Drive system.
