Honda CR-V vs. Ford Escape: Which Vehicle Has the Edge?

Are you are an avid fan of new car models? If so, you have already heard about the Honda CR-V and Ford Escape car models. We did a complete comparison of the Honda CR-V vs. Ford Escape, and here is what we found!

Where Honda CR-V came out strong

If you want a small family car, it is hard to walk away from the new Honda CR-V.

  • 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine
  • 34 mpg highway and 27 mpg city fuel economy*
  • Sharp steering that enables you to stay right on the road
  • 5-star safety rating**
  • Functional interior with the seats and controls perfectly laid out
  • The technological features and storage compartments are perfectly designed

The Finer Points of the Ford Escape

The Ford Escape came out strong when we looked at its exterior.

  • Exterior aesthetic that is elegant and slightly edgy
  • 1.6-liter four-cylinder Ecoboost engine
  • 33 mpg highway and 23 mpg city fuel economy
  • Easy to handle on the road
  • Lack of cargo space

Our Verdict

The Ford Escape is loved by Michigan residents because of its exterior aesthetic, but when it comes to versatility, safety and overall driving experience, the new Honda CR-V definitely has an edge over the Ford Escape.
