The Honda CR-V and the Ford Escape are stylish SUVs that offer lots of storage space and safety features. Both of them are solid options for drivers and families in Marlton, Mt. Laurel, and Cherry Hill, NJ.

Which one of these impressive SUVs is right for you though? Burns Honda put together this Honda CR-V vs. Ford Escape comparison to help you decide.


Interior Dimensions

The right SUV should be able to carry everything you need. From trunk space to cargo capabilities to space for stretching out, the Honda CR-V is one roomy SUV. Not only does it have a large trunk, but it also comes with 60/40 split-folding rear seats and offers helpful amenities, like a power tailgate.

The Ford Escape also has an adequate trunk and passenger space, but overall, it's slightly smaller. You won't be able to pack as much and taller drivers might feel a bit cramped.

User-Friendly Technology

The Honda CR-V also offers the kind of features that'll make your drive more convenient. Its user-friendly infotainment makes it easy to stream music, safely make hands-free calls, and stay in touch wherever you go.

Some of the features you'll find on its dashboard touch-screen include:

  • Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® and Bluetooth® Streaming Audio
  • SMS Text Message Function
  • Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™
  • SiriusXM® and HD Radio™
  • Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation™ with Voice Recognition and Honda HD Digital Traffic

The Ford Escape offers nearly all of the same smartphone capabilities, but it doesn't have an SMS Text Message Function.

Safety Features

The right SUV has to be able to keep you safe. The Honda CR-V does that with a structurally sound design, interior safety features, and driver-assist technology that gives you peace of mind. It starts with an Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure, which is both energy-absorbing and capable of directing the force from a collision away from the cabin.

Inside, you'll be surrounded by an advanced airbag system that protects both rows of seats with side curtain airbags. Everyone can strap in tightly with an automatic tensioning system on the front seat belts and Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH) in the back.

You'll also get to see what's around your SUV with a multi-angle rearview camera. It's just one of the smart safety features that'll give you more awareness. Honda Sensing® comes standard on every trim and helps prevent accidents with the following features:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™
  • Road Departure Mitigation System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow
  • Lane Keeping Assist System

The Ford Escape also comes with side curtain airbags, a camera system, and its own system of driver-assist features. However, it's not built with the ACE™ Body Structure.

Test Drive a Dependable SUV

From offering more space to making it safer and easier to get around and stay in touch, the Honda CR-V is the clear choice for drivers in Marlton, Mt. Laurel, and Cherry Hill, NJ.
