2016 Honda CR-V vs. 2016 Ford Escape
2016 Honda CR-V
When you’re in search for a new cutting-edge compact SUV, what do you look for? Performance, appearance, ample interior space, a moonroof, cupholders? So many other SUV models rest on the laurels of default expectations, but not the all-new 2016 Honda CR-V. Returning for its nineteenth consecutive year of production, you could say that this year’s CR-V has benefited from the years of experience that have preceded it. Motorists local to Raynham and Plymouth are sure to want to take advantage of the many amenities and benefits of being behind the wheel of the CR-V. But first, let’s measure it alongside one of its contemporaries in order bring into stark focus what this year’s model brings to the table.
When on the hunt for a new SUV, you want one that can offer the power and durability of a workhorse utility truck married with the maneuverability of a mid-size sedan. The 2016 Honda CR-V has that, with its 185 hp 2.4L I-4 engine and 2-speed CVT transmission. The Ford Escape, by comparison, features a 178 hp 1.6L or 168 hp 2.5L engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission. On average, the Honda CR-V delivers better EPA-estimated fuel economy in the form of 26/33 mpg* between city and highway (2WD models) as opposed to the Ford Escape’s 23/32 mpg.
The 2016 Honda CR-V offers larger interior dimensions and passenger volume compared to the 2016 Ford Escape. The CR-V’s frame allows for 104.1 cu. ft. of room for occupants while the Escape caps out at 98.1 cu. ft. If you are in need of ample cargo space, the CR-V once again delivers. With the rear seats up, the CR-V has 35.2 cubic feet of cargo room compared to 34.3 cubic feet offered by the Escape. If you fold down the rear seats, the CR-V still comes out ahead with 70.9 cubic feet of cargo space versus 67.8 cubic feet available with the Escape.
