Subaru Crosstrek vs Ford Escape Comparison in Rutland, VT

  • Not only will the new Crosstrek, like other Subaru models, deliver a better long-term value than the Escape, but it's also more affordable right in the base level compared to the Ford SUV.
  • Of course a key highlight of the new Crosstrek is standard AWD, which isn't even offered with the base S edition of the Escape, which requires a costlier trim level and adding more to its price to get an AWD setup.
  • Even with standard AWD, the new Crosstrek is more efficient than the base-level Escape, earning up to 33 mpg on the highway, compared to 29 highway mpg for the Ford model.
  • Though smaller in total interior space, the Crosstrek's smart design actually grants more shoulder room for both front and rear passengers than what you'll discover in the Escape.
