Escape vs. Terrain: Which Compact SUV Is Right for You?

If you are in the market for a compact SUV, there are many strong contenders to choose from. The compact SUV is a nice step up from a sedan. It can serve as a good commuter vehicle, carpool the kids, haul weekend camping gear, and handle a bit of rugged terrain on the road less traveled. This do-all is perfect for a small family that wants something not too big and not too small.

The 2018 Ford Escape and 2018 GMC Terrain are well-rounded compact SUVs. Both land in the top third of our competitive U.S. News Best Car rankings. The Escape offers a new mid-level SEL trim this year, while the Terrain is completely redesigned.
