2020 Subaru Crosstrek vs. 2020 Ford Escape

  • To provide you with greater confidence on your adventures around Chandler, every new Subaru Crosstrek model comes equipped with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, providing you with the ability to not only tackle poor weather conditions and off-road terrain, but also limit under and oversteer when taking any corner. The new Ford Escape comes with standard front-wheel drive with all-wheel drive equipped models costing a higher price.
  • Price should always be a factor when choosing the right vehicle. The new Subaru Crosstrek starts at just over $22,000. The Ford Escape starts at slightly under $25,000, meaning you can either save or upgrade to a higher Crosstrek trim level for a similar price as the base Escape model.
  • The new Escape is longer and wider than the Crosstrek is, meaning that it'll be easier to find a parking spot in the Crosstrek.
  • The Crosstrek gives you a more commanding and clear view of the road with 8.7-inches of ground clearance on every model. The Escape falls slightly short with 7.3-inches of ground clearance.
  • While the Escape edges the Crosstrek in terms of estimated fuel economy, the Crosstrek offers 16.6 gallons of fuel capacity, compared to 14.7 gallons in the Escape, meaning that you can travel a similar if not further distance in the Crosstrek on a full-tank of gas.
  • The new Crosstrek is more maneuverable in tight spaces thanks to a turning diameter of 35.4 feet, compared to the Escape which needs 38.4 feet to do a full circle.
