The 2015 Honda CR-V is available now at West Michigan Honda Dealers, and if you’re looking at the competing 2015 Ford Escape for its price, we think that you’ll be surprised by everything that Honda’s crossover has to offer. Let’s see what sets these two family vehicles apart so that you can decide which one you want to take for a test drive.
Drivers Save on the CR-V
There are two types of savings you can run into on vehicles: short term and long term. Short term savings are generally found in the price, and the 2015 Honda CR-V 2WD LX is affordably priced starting at $23,320 (MSRP).* Long term savings, on the other hand, are often found in reliable and well-equipped vehicles with high fuel economies.
The 2015 Honda CR-V 2WD LX earns an EPA-estimated 34 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city** while the Escape only manages 32 highway mpg and 23 mpg in the city. Despite offering a more efficient car, Honda’s 2.4L powertrain is more powerful than Ford’s. The CR-V is good for 185 hp while the Escape is only capable of 173 hp.
And then there are the features. While the Escape can go toe-to-toe with the CR-V in many features, it still comes up a bit short with regard to modern amenities when put side-by-side with Honda’s crossover, including a touchscreen infotainment system.
You and your family will have more room to stretch out in the CR-V with its 104.1 cubic feet of passenger space; the Escape only has 98.1 cubic feet of room.
