Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Escape offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Toyota RAV4. 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 Toyota RAV4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Escape as you will with the Toyota RAV4, 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). Whether you pick the Ford Escape or the Toyota RAV4, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Toyota RAV4.

Dimensions
The Ford Escape is a little wider than the Toyota RAV4, 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 Toyota RAV4.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Ford Escape will do just as well as the Toyota RAV4, since they have about the same towing capacity.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Escape and the Toyota RAV4.

Warranty
The Ford Escape comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota RAV4.
