2017 Subaru Forester vs 2017 Ford Escape Comparison: Design

The new Forester and the Escape are well designed vehicles from respected manufacturers, but look closer and you'll notice some key differences. The impressive new 2017 Subaru Forester comes with about an inch higher ground clearance which could make a big difference beyond the beaten trail. Despite the larger dimensions, the new Subaru Forester still maneuvers easier thanks to a much shorter curb-to-curb turning radius. The standard in-glass antenna adds to the sleek appearance of the Forester, but this feature is another that's not available on the Ford. Come take a closer look when you see the new 2017 Subaru Forester in person.

2017 Subaru Forester vs 2017 Ford Escape Comparison: Performance

Performance is one more area where the new Subaru Forester pulls ahead of the Ford Escape. The Subaru Boxer engine is horizontally opposed for a lower center of gravity and quieter operation than any of the inline engines that come with the Ford. You'll also appreciate more power with better fuel economy when traveling in a new 2017 Forester. While the new Ford Escape does offer a forced-induction four-cylinder engine as an upgrade, it still won't match the power of the available turbocharged BOXER engine in the new Forester. There's a lot more to the performance advantages that come with a new Subaru, so come experience it from behind the wheel.

2017 Subaru Forester vs 2017 Ford Escape Comparison: Safety

A new small SUV is one of the most popular choices for growing families, and that makes safety even more important. Right from the start, the new 2017 Subaru Forester has the advantage with standard symmetrical all-wheel drive. You can pay more to upgrade a new Ford Escape with four-wheel drive, but you still won't have the renowned traction that comes with the Forester. Another safety feature you'll appreciate in a new Forester is the available reverse automatic braking. You won't find this feature in the Ford either, and these are just a couple examples of the superior safety that comes with a new 2017 Subaru Forester.
