2015 Ford Escape vs. 2015 Honda CR-V

Read This Before Driving Home a 2015 Ford Escape in Mid-Missouri

Mid-Missouri residents shopping for new crossovers have likely put the 2015 Ford Escape in their crosshairs. The Escape may not be the most stylish vehicle in its class, or the best-equipped, but it’s far from a bad option thanks to its 168-hp four-cylinder engine, 31 highway mpg, and 22 city mpg. Features like Ford Sync and a rearview camera make higher trim levels a bit more competitive, too. The basic Escape S trim level, though, is rather limited. If you want to get access to the MyFord Touch infotainment system, for instance, you need to upgrade the Escape to a higher trim level and then pay for a package upgrade as well.

Drivers who want a state-of-the-art crossover without having to upgrade can find it at a Mid-Missouri Honda Dealer in the 2015 Honda CR-V, which has taken home the 2015 Sport/Utility of the Year from Motor Trend. The 2.4L four-cylinder engine under the hood has 185 hp and has let the 2015 CR-V 2WD earn an EPA-estimated 34 highway mpg and 27 city mpg.* As though the engine were not enough, Honda has equipped the CR-V with some of the best standard amenities as well: a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio, a touchscreen infotainment system, and much more.

Take a look at our comparison between the Escape and the CR-V below before you visit a Mid-Missouri Honda Dealers for a test drive of the 2015 CR-V.
