2018 Escape vs Honda CR-V Comparison: Which Is Better?

The 2018 Ford Escape Vs The 2018 Honda CR-V available at Zeigler Plainwell Ford near Kalamazoo, MI

Take A Look At The Stylish Ford Escape

The stylish Ford Escape stands out, even in the crowded compact crossover class. Many crossovers these days look pretty much the same. The Honda CR-V, for example, is the kind of car you'd lose in a parking lot. The sleek and elegant lines of the new Escape help it stand out. Ford also included several stylish and practical features to further distinguish the Escape. The optional hands-free liftgate makes it much easier to load up your Escape when you have an armful of groceries. The available HID headlights not only look good, they provide enhanced visibility in low-light conditions. If you really want to express yourself through your car, consider the Sport Appearance Package. This available selection of aggressive design details includes 19-inch black wheels, LED running lights and taillights, gloss black exterior trim and leather interior trim.

Check Out The Well-Equipped Interior Of The New Escape

The interior of the new Escape has a lot to live up to when you consider the stylish and practical exterior. The interior of the Honda CR-V doesn't have much to live up to and still falls short. The available panoramic sunroof lets in an abundance of natural light while maintaining the privacy of the occupants. The available heated steering wheel ensures that the driver stays comfortable in cold weather. The new Escape also has standard split-folding rear seats. These fold down quickly and easily to maximize storage space. When you have multiple passengers, the seats fold back up quickly and easily. Another practical feature in the interior of the new Escape is the standard center console storage with USB port. This allows you and your passengers to charge devices and connect them in order to play music and control other functions.

Escape From Danger On The Road

The 2018 Ford Escape is built tough to stand up to impacts and accidents. It gets solid crash test ratings all-around. Many manufacturers would have considered this good enough. Excellent occupant protection is not good enough for Ford, however. The Escape offers an impressive suite of safety aids including a standard rearview camera. This feature helps you avoid low-speed collisions in tight quarters, which are the most common type of accident. For good measure, Ford offers an optional reverse sensing system that beeps if you're close to an object when backing up. Other available safety features include Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane-Keeping System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support and Enhanced Active Park Assist. The Honda CR-V can't match the Escape's safety offerings.

Enjoy Every Trip

Ford understands that the 2018 Escape is a practical family SUV. They know that it'll often be used for routine trips to school, the grocery store and soccer practice. In an SUV with lethargic performance like the Honda CR-V, these trips would be boring. However, the Escape offers 3 fun engine choices which all provide sporty performance. A 2.5L 4-cylinder engine making 168 horsepower is standard. Next up is a turbocharged 1.5L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder engine kicking out 179 horsepower. Adventurous drivers can go with the 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged EcoBoost® engine generating an impressive 245 horsepower. All engines come with a 6-speed SelectShift Automatic that serves up quick and efficient shifts. Ford's proprietary Intelligent 4-wheel drive is optional for enhanced grip in challenging conditions.
