2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack vs 2018 Ford Escape
Sure, SUVs are very practical vehicles when it comes to seating and cargo capacity. That's why SUVs, and similarly sized vehicles like minivans, are the staple of family-centered car advertisements. They're big, they're spacious, they're comfortable, and are perfect for carpooling and hauling equipment or luggage.
However, you don't need to buy a giant and oversized SUV just to get a vehicle that has a decent number of seats and a large trunk for storage space. There's plenty of other options optimizing cargo space as a feature, but also shrinking size for better handling and improved fuel economy. We've got 2 that fit that description right here! It's the 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack wagon vs the 2018 Ford Escape compact SUV.
