Choosing the Better SUV in Hanover, MA: Ford Escape vs. Toyota RAV4

There's no doubt that there are many enticing compact SUVs on the market currently. However, there's one that stands out from the crowd, the new Ford Escape. While this model comes with everything you need to enhance your commutes, Jannell Ford of Hanover recognizes that there may be other SUVs you're looking at, like the new Toyota RAV4. Here's a comparison between these two popular models to help you make a more informed decision.

Lifestyle: Cabin Space and Technology

  • The new Toyota RAV4 offers an impressive amount of passenger space inside its cabin. Although, the new Ford Escape offers even more legroom in both rows, giving you and your passengers more room to get comfortable on your drives.
  • One feature found on the new Ford Escape and not on the new Toyota RAV4 is the MyKey technology. This feature allows you to set limits on speed and audio volume for secondary drivers, promoting safe driving habits.

Performance and Engine Options

  • While the new Toyota RAV4 comes standard with a more powerful engine than the new Ford Escape's base option, it does not offer a more robust option. The new Ford Escape offers an available 250-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine, making for a thrilling driving experience.
  • There's no questioning that the new RAV4 is fun to drive, but it's not quite as agile as the new Ford Escape. This new Ford SUV boasts precise steering, and minimal body lean when taking corners.
