2019 Honda CR-V vs 2019 Ford Escape | Kansas City, MO
The crossover segment is a competitive one, so it can be difficult to decide which vehicle is the right choice for you. This comparison looks at two crossover models – the 2019 HondaCR-V and 2019 Ford Escape – to help you decide which model will suit you best.
Whether you’re using your crossover to haul your family around or pack up your gear for a weekend getaway, you likely want an ample amount of interior space. While both the CR-V and the Escape offer that, when it comes down to the numbers, the CR-V offers more space. The CR-V boasts a total passenger volume of 105.9 cubic feet compared to the Escape’s 98.8 cubic feet. It also offers 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second-row seats and a maximum cargo capacity of 75.8 cubic feet. The Escape only offers 34 cubic feet behind the second row and 68 cubic feet in total.
Performance & Efficiency
While the 2019 Escape offers you the choice of three engines compared to the CR-V’s two, the CR-V still manages to beat out the majority of the Escape’s engines when it comes to power.
The CR-V offers a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine as standard, putting out 184 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. This engine outperforms the Escape’s standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which produces 168 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque.
When you compare the two models’ secondary engine options, you will find the same result. The CR-V offers a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, producing 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque – more than the Escape’s second engine option, which is a 1.5-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder engine that puts out 179 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque.
With more power, you would expect the CR-V to suffer when it comes to fuel efficiency. That’s not the case, though. The CR-V boasts a fuel-efficiency rating of up to 26 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.* The Escape’s fuel-efficiency rating is only 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
For a crossover that’s efficient, strong, and spacious, choose the CR-V over the Escape. You can find the CR-V and other Honda models at Honda of Tiffany Springs.
