Toyota RAV4 vs. Ford Escape


The 2017 Toyota RAV4 Takes on the 2017 Ford Escape

When it comes to shopping for a new SUV in Houston, you've got quite a lot to choose from. One of our favorites though? The 2017 Toyota RAV4, naturally. To learn more about this year's model, and how it's taking on competitors such as the 2017 Ford Escape, we encourage you to read on below...

A Fuel Sipping Engine

If you've got your heart set on a vehicle that won't have you stopping at the pump on a daily basis, then we recommend choosing the 2017 Toyota RAV4. Equipped with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, this year's RAV4 is a mere fuel sipper. Unfortunately for the Ford Escape, its engine isn't nearly as fuel efficient as what the 2017 Toyota RAV4 comes readily equipped with.

A Wealth of Safety Features to be Had

Unlike the 2017 Ford Escape, the new Toyota RAV4 has earned five stars overall from the NHTSA, along with a Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS. What is it that's earning the RAV4 such a high marks? It's many safety features, of course. Unlike the Ford Escape, this year's model comes outfitted with features such as a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.

Smart Tech Features to Further Enhance your Driving Experience

For many Houston area car shoppers, there's nothing more satisfying than getting behind the wheel of a vehicle that's outfitted with the latest tech features. Fortunately, when you choose the 2017 Toyota RAV4, you'll experience exactly that. Available with the Entune Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation and App Suite system, this year's RAV4 makes nary a compromise when it comes to tech-savvy features. Unfortunately for the Ford Escape, the Entune Premium Audio system is exclusive to the Toyota lineup.

If you still have questions about the 2017 Toyota RAV4 or if you're interested in learning even more about how this year's model stacks up to the competition, we invite you to stop by our new Toyota dealership in Houston, TX to speak with a member of our team.
