2016 Honda CR-V EX vs 2016 Ford Escape
There is no denying that crossover SUVs have become a hit in recent years. These vehicles are agile, yet efficient, Sporty, yet comfortable. They appeal to a broad range of drivers and can do almost anything that you ask of them. One vehicle in our lineup that has been doing it better than most in recent years is the Honda CR-V, but it has seen many strong challenges from other SUVs, such as the Ford Escape. We take a look at which of these two is right for you with the 2016 Honda CR-V EX vs 2016 Ford Escape comparison.
One thing that we instantly notices with these two is how much more space there is for passengers and their cargo in the 2016 Honda CR-V EX than the 2016 Ford Escape.
