The 2017 Honda CR-V has the advantage over the Ford Escape in terms of fuel economy

For example, if we do not want our sport utility vehicle to compromise in terms of fuel economy in order to provide more versatility, the 2017 Honda CR-V and its all-new turbo engine are the way to go.

Entirely redesigned this year, the 2017 Honda CR-V celebrates its fifth generation by offering for the first time a turbocharged engine under the hood. Powerful, this new 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine features 190 horsepower and 179 lb.-ft. of torque. That said, its fuel economy is probably what is most impressive. Indeed, all-wheel drive models have an average fuel consumption rating of 8.7 liters per 100 kilometers in the city and 7.2 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway. In other words, the CR-V offers its owners the fuel economy ratings of a traditional compact vehicle.

The Ford Escape offers more engine options (three), but none of these engines are can compete with the 2017 Honda CR-V's turbo engine. Indeed, the most fuel-efficient engine in the Escape lineup is a four-cylinder, 1.5-liter engine that develops 179 horsepower. Despite the fact that it has less power than the CR-V’s turbo engine, the average fuel consumption rating is listed at 10.7 liters per 100 kilometers in the city and 8.3 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway with all-wheel drive.

More space for the 2017 Honda CR-V compared to the 2017 Ford Escape in Ottawa

The 2017 Honda CR-V is not only about the engine. It is also able to surprise with its vast cargo space. Indeed, the 2017 Honda CR-V is able to accommodate 1,110 liters in the trunk with all the seats in place, and 2,146 liters when you lower the rear seat. In comparison, the 2017 Ford Escape offers less than 2,000 liters with the rear seat lowered, and less than 1,000 liters with all seats in place.

So if you are looking for a spacious and fuel-efficient SUV, the 2017 Honda CR-V offered starting at $ 26,690 will be able to meet all your needs. For more information, contact us today at Civic Motors!
