How Does the Design of the New 2018 Subaru Forester Compare to the 2018 Ford Escape?

The exterior designs of these two respected small SUV models speaks well of their design teams, but there's more to your decision than looks. When we looked deeper, we found that there are a variety of ways that the new 2018 Subaru Forester is designed to give you much more for your money than the 2018 Ford Escape. For instance, the new Subaru Forester is available with a roof rack at the entry level, but you'll have to spend even more for a higher trim level to get this level of convenience on the already more-expensive Ford Escape. What's more, available steering-responsive LED headlights are available on the new Subaru Forester that allow you to see around corners in the dark. You won't find this advanced level of technology on a new Ford Escape. Inside, you and those closest to you will have substantially more passenger space inside the new Subaru Forester which also provides more cargo capacity than the Ford Escape. You may pay more for the small SUV from Ford, but you certainly won't get more than what you'll find in the new 2018 Subaru Forester.

How Does the Performance of the New 2018 Subaru Forester Compare to the 2018 Ford Escape?

How your next new small SUV feels from behind the wheel is an important part of lasting happiness with your decision. At the entry level, you'll find similar power from the new 2018 Subaru Forester and the 2018 Ford Escape. However, the Ford Escape must carry around significantly more weight, which means that the new Subaru Forester feels more responsive and gains better fuel economy, especially when both models are equipped with automatic transmissions. Both models are available with more powerful engines, and we found that the new Subaru Forester holds the advantage here as well. What really sets the performance of the new Subaru Forester in a league above the Ford Escape is how the power is made and delivered. While the Ford offers traditional vertical engine designs, the new Subaru Forester comes with your choice of flat BOXER® engines that provide a lower center of gravity for superior handling and comfort. What's more, every new Subaru Forester comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for a more exciting driving experience than the new Ford Escape, even when the money is spent to upgrade it with 4-wheel drive.

How Does the Safety of the New 2018 Subaru Forester Compare to the 2018 Ford Escape?

When it comes to the safety of you and your loved ones in a new small SUV, it only makes sense to go with the best. That's what the new 2018 Subaru Forester offers with a 2018 IIHS Top Safety Pick. The new Ford Escape didn't earn a safety award while falling short of the Subaru Forester in a variety of important areas like the small overlap front crash tests, crash avoidance systems, and even the ease of use for the child seat anchors. Then, there are the meaningful safety advantages that come with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive in the new Subaru Forester over the Ford Escape. Of course, the safest accidents are those that are avoided, and that's where the available Subaru EyeSight® driver assist technology comes in to provide a level of safety that the Ford Escape simply can't compete with. Your safety on today's unpredictable roads is nothing to compromise on, and this is just the beginning of the advantages that come with a new Subaru Forester over the Ford Escape.

Why Upgrade to a New Subaru for Getting Around Arizona & Beyond?

Every model comes with a flat BOXER® engine that provides a low center of gravity that works with a fully-independent suspension for an engaging drive that the competition can't keep up with. All but one Subaru model comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, which is not only great for trips to the mountains, but also provides superior handling and safety on any road.
