2016 Honda CRV vs 2016 Ford Escape
With Ford being one of the oldest automotive companies in North America, their vehicles hold a lot of weight with enthusiasts and are often considered amongst the most popular vehicles in each segment that they belong. For that reason, we wanted to throw our ultra-popular midsize crossover into a comparison with one of these popular Ford vehicles to see just how well our vehicle measures up, so we compared the 2016 Honda CRV vs 2016 Ford Escape. One advantage we can say for sure, is that since the Ford Escape was introduced in 1997, it has never won a Motor Trend award.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda CRV
Aside from a fairly prestigious award in its trophy case, the Honda CRV is pretty dominant across the board. By taking a look at the table above, we can see just a couple of its advantages, starting with highway fuel efficiency where it utilizes a half-litre of fuel less every 100 kilometres. Then we turn to power ratings, where the Honda CRV’s engine delivers an extra 17 horsepower. Might not sound like a lot, but it could certainly be noticeable.
Lastly, the Honda CRV has an advantage in cargo capacity, as behind its rear seat it offers an extra 2.9 cubic feet of space for you to utilize on road trips or family vacations or for whatever you might need to fill it for. Towing capacity, however, is identical between the two vehicles. But from the rest of this comparison we don’t exactly see what all the fuss is about with the Ford Escape.
