Over the last few years, crossovers have quickly become a favorite among new car buyers, edging out minivans and SUVs thanks to their combination of sleek style and high fuel economy. As the fastest growing division of the auto industry, competition among crossover vehicles is fierce; this works out well for consumers looking for a quality vehicle, but can make it tough to make a final decision. To help with this choice, AOL Autos has named the best crossovers for under $30,000, and has named the 2013 Ford Escape as one of its top choices.
To determine the best crossovers on the market, AOL Autos looked at utility, performance, features, safety, and value. The vehicle also had to be available (adequately equipped) for under $30,000.
Up until the 2013 model year, the Ford Escape had been considered a small SUV. This year, the vehicle received a body style change, smoother lines, and improved fuel economy to become a strong competitor in the crossover market. In its first year, the vehicle has already received ample recognition, including a spot on this list. AOL Autos liked the Escape for its design, fuel economy, versatility, and drive.
