2016 BMW X1 vs. 2016 Ford Escape Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X1 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Ford Escape, with comparable head- and legroom. 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
The BMW X1 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Escape, making it more convenient to drive.

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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Ford Escape, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the BMW X1 is much higher than that for the Ford Escape.

Dimensions
The BMW X1 is about the same width as the Ford Escape. 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 a smaller turning radius than the Ford Escape, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW X1 has a little less 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 less cargo space than the Ford Escape, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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