2015 Ford Escape vs. Its Competition

2015 Ford Escape
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

If you're considering a loaded-to-the-gills Escape Titanium and you think you're missing active-safety features, you might want to consider the Lincoln MKC.

It includes more of those safety systems, as well as a stronger, 2.3-liter turbo four.

Quick Specs
8.0
With athletic looks and the performance to match, plus a roomy interior and loads of available cabin tech and convenience features, the 2015 Ford Escape is bolder and more exciting than most rivals, without much compromise.
7.8
The 2015 Honda CR-V is neither sporty nor particularly quick, but fuel efficiency is excellent and it prioritizes interior space, earnest practicality, and cleverly chosen features in a way that buyers appear to crave.
8.0
The 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe is really two vehicles in one, with the larger model geared toward big families and the smaller Sport version good for those with smaller broods.
7.6
The 2015 Kia Sportage is nice to look at and good fun to drive when equipped with the turbo engine; it's proof that crossovers don't have to be uninteresting.
7.6
The 2015 Nissan Rogue may have a small third row, but it's a better car than the previous generation in virtually every way.
7.4
The 2015 Toyota RAV4 is a practical crossover with confident handling. Just know that driving enjoyment is not its strong point.
