Ford Escape vs Honda CR-V

Comparing the 2020 Ford Escape and 2020 Honda CR-V

The growing popularity of crossover SUVs has made the category one of the most competitive on the market, which has led to many exciting 2020 crossover SUVs. Among these, the 2020 Ford Escape and 2020 Honda CR-V stand out thanks to their value, capability, comfort, and adaptability, which are all traits helping to make the category so popular in the first place. If you're trying to decide between the two, we've compared the 2020 Ford Escape and 2020 Honda CR-V to help you out!

Design and Engineering

  • The Ford Escape is great at carrying five passengers, and part of the reason for that is all the space in the back row. It has more rear headroom and a wider back seat than what the 2020 Honda CR-V offers. Plus, the 2020 Ford Escape provides the drive more legroom.
  • When looking at engines, you'll find four unique ones with the Ford Escape but only one engine available in the Honda CR-V. That 190-horsepower engine in the Honda CR-V can't keep up with the Escape's available 250-horsepower engine, which helps the 2020 Ford Escape two 3,500 pounds while the Honda CR-V musters only 1,500 pounds of towing.
  • Of these two, only the Ford Escape offers a hybrid, and it actually has two hybrid engines, which includes a plug-in hybrid option. You won't find any Honda CR-V hybrids on the market, which makes the Ford Escape a greener option!

Safety and Technology

  • Driver-assist technologies come standard in both of these 2020 crossover SUVs, but only the Ford Escape has blind-spot monitoring standard. If you want that in the Honda CR-V, you'll have to opt for a pricier trim level.
  • The Ford Escape also offers a variety of features that you won't get in the Honda CR-V. These Ford Escape-specific features include in-car deliveries through Amazon Prime and a parking assistant that can steer through your parallel parking tasks.
