2015 BMW X1 vs. 2015 Ford Escape Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the BMW X1 than the Ford Escape. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the BMW X1 and the Ford Escape.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the BMW X1, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Escape.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The BMW X1 is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Escape. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X1 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Ford Escape.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X1 is much slimmer than the Ford Escape, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the BMW X1 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Ford Escape.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the BMW X1 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Ford Escape.

Handling
The BMW X1 has the same turning radius as the Ford Escape, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW X1 has a little more horsepower than the Ford Escape.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X1 and the Ford Escape. The BMW X1 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Ford Escape.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X1 than that of the Ford Escape.
