2017 Ford Escape Review
says:
2017 Ford Escape is an absolutely excellent vehicle and I would reccomend someone in the market for a small SUV to look into the new Escape. Its far ahead of his compitition in technology, sporty ride, comfort, and almost every other aspect. I love mine and Im positive you will like it as well!

Handling Ranked 2016 Honda CR-V worse.
"There is no comparison here. The Escape is basically a bigger car. It handles like a dream and is very fun and responsive to drive. The CR-V is slow and lagging."
Looks/Style Ranked 2016 Honda CR-V worse.
"Its just has better line down the side, the grill has more personality and the wheels are much nicer. Overall a better vehicle"
Front Seats Ranked 2016 Honda CR-V worse.
"Also much more comfortable than the CRV. With many more amenities for front passengers overall comfort and ride enjoyment"
Back Seats Ranked 2016 Honda CR-V worse.
"They are much more comfortable and more leg room!"
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2016 Honda CR-V worse.
"I prefer the smaller cargo capacity for more comfortable leg room in front and rear seats."
Family Car Ranked 2016 Honda CR-V better.
"The escape is a great family car. The CR-V Just more cargo space for kids toys and things. I woul still prefer the Escape for a camping trip or traveling"
Value Ranked 2016 Honda CR-V worse.
"Both fully loaded versions are similarly priced however the Escape has a ton more tech options and is overall much more advanced in todays preferences."
Would Buy Ranked 2016 Honda CR-V worse.
"Everything about the Escape leaves me complexity satisfied with my purchase. I have everything I want/need plus some in a new car. The CRV left me wanting way more than it could offer. Escape is by far a better overall value!"

2017 Ford Escape Titanium AWD Review
says:
This Escape has the 300a package and Nav. I did not want the other nannies that came with the tech. package nor the vista roof or needed the tow package. I cannot believe the power the 2.0L has. It is quiet, comfortable, affordable and just the right size for for our needs. Drive it and you will agree.
