2017 Ford Escape range review

One of the Australian car market’s great mysteries is why Ford Australia has been so bad at convincing people to buy its Escape mid-sized SUV. Or, for that matter, its Kuga predecessor.

Despite being a relatively well-rounded offering, Ford’s market share at the time of writing was/is  just three per cent, miles behind the Mazda CX-5 (15.9 per cent share), Hyundai Tucson (15.2), Toyota RAV4 (13.1), Nissan X-Trail (11.9), Mitsubishi Outlander (9.8), Kia Sportage (8.8), Subaru Forester (8.1) and Volkswagen Tiguan (6.2).
