2019 Ford Escape vs. 2019 Toyota RAV4
The Toyota RAV4 has been dominating the segment recently, mostly because of its standard engine throughout the lineup offering great power and performance along with reliability. Moreover, it is also the most efficient engine for a compact crossover. Compared to a Ford Escape, the base trim might not interest as much as a Titanium which would definitely outperform the Japanese SUV.
In terms of interiors, both have long-lasting materials and high-tech equipment that is easy to use making it a comfortable place to be in. Talking about the overall design, Ford tries to impress with sharp cuts, defined lines, and a little functional equipment, both on the inside and outside whereas the RAV4 has the same interior room but with a boxy design, making it bulkier and not actually compact.
2019 Ford Escape vs. 2019 Honda CR-V
The Honda CR-V is another Japanese SUV that outperforms the base trim but will be dominated by the higher trim in the Escape lineup. The Honda CR-V has a better fuel economy but it lacks the exterior features that are provided in the American SUV. Unlike the Toyota, Honda’s CR-V has a few curves that could go against the Ford Escape but has a very ugly rear and is bulkier as well.
The interiors in the Honda are a little more convenient and have better build quality which makes it look prettier than the monotonous Ford, however, the layout seems to be designed in haste, unlike the Escape. The CR-V offers a balanced room for its passengers as well as for cargo and both of these SUVs are available with plenty of safety features.
2019 Ford Escape vs. 2019 Kia Sportage
The 2019 Kia Sportage has an equally cool and joyous design, making it Korea’s Ford Escape. However, it does not get as functional on the outside as the Escape while the visibility is not as much as that of the American crossover. In addition to this, the Sportage and Escape have equal performance, though the Kia offers more power and is lighter than the Ford.
Moving on to the cabin, both have an equally good and slightly matching cabin style. While the Ford offers a strong, curvy cabin design, the Kia gets a simple and more accessible cabin. The build quality is more or less the same in both of these SUVs but Ford offers a little more room for the front passengers and cargo area. Moreover, Ford also has taken good care and provides optional safety systems, unlike the Korean manufacturer.
