Meet the latest addition to our fleet of long-term testers, the 2018 Ford Escape ST-Line. It'll be with us for the next few months, strutting its stuff as the sportiest member of the oft-overlooked Escape line-up.
We'll delve into life with the car over the next few instalments, but here are some of the basics.
This isn't the first time I've had a Ford Escape in my life...
It's been 41 years since we last saw a new Alpine A110 roll out of the factory in Dieppe, but it's been worth the wait, because this just may be the most enjoyable car I've driven in years. Margeit was right about that.
The more things change, the more they stay the same for the new Forester from Subaru. Although it's dropped some driveline options (no turbo!), it's still a compelling combination of practicality, safety and tech.
