2017 Ford Escape vs 2017 Honda CR-V

As the SUV segment continues to grow, families all around the world are loving the competition. The more SUVs, the more they have to outshine their rivals. Two SUVS that have been turning a lot of heads in the past year or so are the Ford Escape and Honda CR-V. The 2017 Ford Escape vs 2017 Honda CR-V comparison is very closely contested, but, of course, Ford comes out on top in the end. 

While the 2017 Honda CR-V definitely has its strengths here and there, the 2017 Ford Escape proves to fit its customers' needs better overall. Starting with its base price tag, the 2017 Escape works with its customers budgets better than the 2017 CR-V. The difference of almost $300 may not seem too significant at first glance, but that extra $300 really doesn't get Honda customers any more bang for their buck.

Reasons Why the 2017 Ford Escape Beats the 2017 Honda CR-V

As one would hope, both SUVs do come with standard Bluetooth capability, which is definitely a small victory for all customers. Unfortunately, this is one of the few features that the CR-V can match. Unavailable on the 2017 CR-V, the 2017 Ford Escape provides its customers with the option of available parking assistance. While it may not be a necessity, most people would agree that it is better to have something and not need it than face the opposite situation.

Similarly, the 2017 Ford Escape also offers navigation software in its Sync 3 interface, while the Honda CR-V does not. No matter what roads await, it is always better to have a resource such as navigation software available. Ford wants its drivers to reach their destinations hassle-free, safe and sound.

For all of these reasons, the 2017 Ford Escape vs 2017 Honda CR-V comparison ends in a big win for Ford.
