2014 Ford Escape vs. 2014 Honda CR-V Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Ford Escape than the Honda CR-V. The Ford Escape will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Escape as you will with the Honda CR-V, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Ford Escape is somewhat more expensive than the Honda CR-V. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Escape will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Honda CR-V.

Dimensions
The Ford Escape is a little wider than the Honda CR-V, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Ford Escape takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda CR-V.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Escape transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Honda CR-V.

Handling
The Ford Escape has a larger turning radius than the Honda CR-V, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Ford Escape is clearly the choice over the Honda CR-V for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Escape has a little more horsepower than the Honda CR-V.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Escape and the Honda CR-V. The Ford Escape has less cargo space than the Honda CR-V, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Ford Escape comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda CR-V.
