2015 Honda CRV vs 2015 Ford Escape
The Honda CRV was one of the most talked-about vehicles of the 2015 model year. It received a mid-generation facelift that led to it being crowned the 2015 Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the Year, and now the 2016 model year is set to only build upon its ever-growing legacy. But until that model is released, we still have the extremely popular 2015 model, and we thought we’d show you some of the advantages it has over one of its biggest competitors, so we took a closer look at the 2015 Honda CRV vs 2015 Ford Escape.
Advantages of the 2015 Honda CRV
As the table at the top of this page depicts, the CRV won all of its awards for good reason. Starting from the top with fuel economy, which Honda is known for anyways, the 2015 Honda CRV has a 1.4 l/100km advantage in estimated combined fuel efficiency. That means you’ll be saving quite a bit out of pocket at the gas pump every year, both through the city and on the highway. But generally with an advantage in fuel efficiency comes a disadvantage in power, however that isn’t the case with the CRV, as it also has nearly 20 horsepower more than the 2015 Ford Explorer as well.
And the advantages don’t stop there. One of the most important things in a crossover vehicle is its ability to store cargo, and the Honda utility vehicle has a bit of a leg up in that department as well. Behind the back seat it has just under an extra cubic foot of space to hold stuff, and when you drop the back seat down to open up even more space it has just over 3 extra cu. ft. of space to fill with whatever you might need to transport.
