Affordability

If you’re looking for a small crossover SUV, you probably want utility along with pragmatic savings. The 2017 Chevrolet Trax delivers that in droves, beginning with its accessible MSRP from just $21,000. On top of that, the Trax is able to get up to an EPA-estimated 33 mpg highway and 25 mpg city, saving you money at the gas pump well beyond the bill of sale. The Ford Escape, on the other hand, starts at a more expensive MSRP from $23,750, and there’s no version that’s able to get better than an EPA-estimated 30 mpg highway and 23 mpg city.
