Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Escape offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Hyundai Tucson. 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. 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 Hyundai Tucson.

Dimensions
The Ford Escape is a little wider than the Hyundai Tucson, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Escape, which is slightly longer than the Hyundai Tucson.

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Ford Escape will do just as well as the Hyundai Tucson, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Ford Escape has a little less horsepower than 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. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Ford Escape as you will in the Hyundai Tucson.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Escape is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Tucson.
