Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Tucson than in the Ford Escape, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Escape offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Tucson, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The Ford Escape requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Hyundai Tucson, 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 Ford Escape is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Tucson.

Dimensions
The Ford Escape is about the same width as the Hyundai Tucson. When looking at overall length, the Ford Escape takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Tucson.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Hyundai Tucson is clearly the choice over the Ford Escape for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Escape has a little more horsepower than the Hyundai Tucson.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford Escape doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Tucson.

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