Highlighting Differences Between the New Ford Escape and Honda CR-V

When the time comes to upgrade to a more exciting compact SUV in Hanover, MA, consider choosing the new Ford Escape. This model comes with a spacious cabin and is a blast to drive thanks to its peppy, athletic performance. While this vehicle is a popular new Ford model, Jannell Ford of Hanover understands that there may be other options you're considering, like the new Honda CR-V. To help you make the right choice, here's a comparison between these two highly sought-after vehicles.


  • There's no doubt that both models provide drivers and passengers with a comfortable ride. However, the new Ford Escape comes with slightly more legroom in both rows than the Honda CR-V, giving everyone more room to stretch out on a long drives.
  • These SUVs also come with several useful tech features inside. The new Ford Escape comes standard with a six-speaker stereo that provides crisp, clear sound quality. The Honda CR-V comes standard with a less exciting four-speaker stereo.

Performance and Powertrain Options

  • While the new Honda CR-V comes with a peppy 190-horsepower engine, the Ford Escape offers two powertrain choices. You can choose between the base 180-horsepower engine or a more energetic 250-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder, adding excitement to your drives.
  • The new Honda CR-V delivers smooth ride quality, but it's not quite as athletic as the Ford SUV. You'll love driving the new Escape as it's incredibly agile and boasts sharp, precise steering.
