The Ford Escape is one of the most popular midsize SUVs on the market, but some drivers prefer the equally popular Honda CR-V. While both vehicles seem similar on the surface, their differences are what set them apart and show drivers which model is the better choice. 

To help figure out which one of these vehicles is going to get you around the Stroudsburg, East Stroudsburg, Easton, Nazareth, and Lehigh Valley areas, the Ray Price Stroud Ford compiled this in-depth review for you.

By reading our Ford Escape vs. Honda CR-V comparison, you'll see the clear differences between these two similar models. We'll be focusing on the passenger space and comfort, entertainment and convenience technology, and safety features. 

After reading our Ford Escape vs. Honda CR-V comparison, you'll know which model is right for you. 

Ford Escape vs Honda CR-V: Passenger Space and Comfort

The Ford Escape and Honda CR-V offer enough space in their respective cabins to hold five passengers. Each vehicle features cloth seating appointments. 

The Ford Escape and the Honda CR-V each provide a decent amount of front headroom, but it's the Ford Escape that takes the lead in front legroom with 43.1 inches, which is more spacious and accommodating than the 41.3 inches of front legroom offered in the Honda CR-V. 

Overall, the Ford Escape offers more room for its passengers vs. Honda CR-V. 

Entertainment and Convenience Technology

The Ford Escape delivers your audio entertainment through the 6-speaker sound system, offering two more speakers than the sound system in the Honda CR-V. Each vehicle features a dashboard-mounted display screen that acts as your entertainment command center. 

Both SUVs offer a radio and a CD player that can play MP3 format audio files. They also feature voice recognition, which allows you to keep your hands on the wheel while selecting a song, artist, or phone book contact to chat with through the Bluetooth® system. 

The Ford Escape has a few other cutting-edge technologies that allow you to stay connected at all times and to more than just your smartphone's apps. With the available FordPass™ Connect with Wi-Fi® Hotspot, you can stay connected no matter where you go on up to 10 devices. 

With Ford+Alexa, which is a part of the available SYNC® 3 AppLink®, you'll be able to take advantage of the over 50,000 skills through Alexa. You'll even be able to control your supported smart home devices from your car with this feature.

Safety Features

When it comes to keeping the vehicle in control when driving on slick roads, the Ford Escape features AdvanceTrac® and the Honda CR-V features Vehicle Stability Assist™. These anti-lock braking features will apply brake pressure during wheel slip to help guide your vehicle back to its path. 

Additionally, the Ford Escape features Torque Vectoring Control, which adjusts the speed between the front wheels when you're approaching a corner to give you better handling while your tires achieve better grip.

The Ford Escape also features the helpful MyKey® system. This feature lets you program a specific key for your teenage driver that'll aid them when they're on the road. 

This programmed key will prevent their audio from playing until they're safely buckled, and it'll reduce the maximum speed. This key was designed to help educate your teen about safe and responsible driving.
