Ford Escape Vs. Honda CR-V in Watertown, CT

2017 Ford Escape

2017 Honda CR-V

  • Price is always part of why people choose one vehicle over another, and the Escape is available at a lower starting MSRP than the CR-V.
  • Fill up fewer times with the Escape, thanks to its 15.7 gallon fuel tank. The CR-V only offers a 15.3 gallon fuel tank, so you may be making more stops.
  • New England winters are no joke, which is why the Escape is a great buy with its available heated mirrors so you can spend a little less time clearing off your car after that last big snow storm. The CR-V doesn't offer this feature.
  • If you've driven anywhere in New England, you'll know that sometimes it takes a while to get to where you're going, which is why Satellite Radio comes in handy. This feature is available in the Escape, but not in the CR-V.

  • The Escape offers more horsepower, but it also can maintain a better fuel economy than the RAV4.
