      Great review once again Doug 😁 always enjoy your work. When it comes to the design, do you not think they attempted to copy the design of the porsche Cayenne? I've always thought it was reminiscent of there SUV's but not in as cool of a way.

    Early in the video you stated that this vehicle's Price starts at a little over 28,000 yet you're reviewing a car that probably cost cost 40

          I think it looks good, why should all cars look aggressive?

                  180hp on a 3 cylinder engine.
                  People, sacrificing cylinders by turbocharging to gain more power will not be good for engines longevity.
                  This is becoming somewhat of a trend and this is not good.

                        I've always liked Ford's key pad. I'm glad the escape has it.

                                  My wife and I went in to Ford to buy a 2020 Escape. We test drove 3 with various trim levels. The last test drive we noticed a 2019 Sport package sitting at the showroom entrance. While talking over what 2020 we liked we walked around the 2019. Being we owned a 2013, have loved it from day one with zero issues. You can see where this is going? Yup, we bought the 2019 loaded with way more features than any of the 2020 models for $10k less after incentives and price negotiations. Rule one when car buying, never buy first model year of a redesign. Outgoing model will be refined and loaded with features.

                                      Hey Doug, you talked about the seat cavity providing added leg room in the 2nd row, but failed to notice the sliding 2nd row seats that provides 6 more inches of adjust - first in the Escape platform.. Lol. Big miss fyi or maybe was not told..

                                              Subaru also has the pin access feature, just doesn’t use a key pad, it uses the door handle, which is more discrete and better

                                                      I think the lack of "Second" seat pocket behind the driver in modern cars is mostly due to safety issues. 
                                                      Sure older cars had it, but maybe now they do this since it's very difficult and dangerous to reach behind your seat while driving.  I guess you could argue they could be useful for the back seat passengers, but I donno. I think it's mostly for safety, rather than cost cutting.

                                                        Glad to hear lane centering is standard.
                                                        Rav-4 started offering lane centering and adaptive cruise control standard in 2019 so I’m happy to rent those for long trips.

I like the overall look of it, I'm just not a fan of today's trend in grille design. One of the only car companies that's not using the "large mouth bass" grille design is VW.
