Honda CR-V vs Ford Escape


2017 Honda CR-V versus 2017 Ford Escape

Small SUVs can be the best choice for families or adults with pets; the convenience and flexibility that a Sports Utility Vehicle provides fits many lifestyles. The 2017 Honda CR-V comes in 4 available trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L and Touring; 2WD and AWD.

The 2017 Honda CR-V's sleek styling and sophisticated interior are accentuated by the latest in safety and connectivity technology1. The CVT or continuous variable transmission makes for smooth acceleration as well as improves fuel efficiency. ACE™ Body Structure is a Honda-exclusive body design that utilizes a network of connected structural elements to distribute frontal crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle. This helps reduce the force transferred to the cabin and more evenly disperse the forces transferred to other vehicles involved.

The CR-V and Escape are comparable but the 2017 Honda CR-V is a more powerful SUV due to its CVT engine. The CR-V provides better fuel economy and standard safety features than the Escape. The newly re-designed CR-V boasts significantly more interior room than the Escape.
