Let's check out how the 2015 Ford Escape does against the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.
All you have to do to keep $2000 in your bank account is to choose a 2015 Ford Escape over a Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. See, wasn't that easy? With the sporty Escapes' starting MSRP of $22,960 vs. the Santa Fe Sport's hefty price tag of $24,950 -- you'll be a winner before we even start tossing out our big discounts Plattner's LaBelle Ford! Not to mention, you'll get standard features on the 2015 Ford Escape that you won't get on the Santa Fe Sport including a rearview camera and integrated blind spot mirrors for safety, plus a color display screen which are only pricey options on the Santa Fe Sport.
Even though it's a compact crossover, the 2015 Ford Escape takes command of the road with its three robust engines -- a 2.5 liter Inline 4 with168 hp, a 1.6 liter EcoBoost Inline 4 with 178 hp and a 2.0L EcoBoost Inline 4 with 240 hp. A 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission works in tandem with all engines and the EcoBoosts come with available AWD. In comparison, the Santa Fe has two available engines -- a 2.4L Inline 4 with 190 horses and a 2.0L Inline 4 Turbo with 265 hp, both coupled with a 6-speed automatic with optional AWD as well. Even though the Santa Fe Sport offers a few more horses, it sacrifices fuel economy with 20 city/27 mpg while the 2015 Ford Escape achieves a higher 22/31 mpg.
Just because your SUV is small doesn't mean it can't be spacious. The 2015 Ford Escape offers up plenty of room in the front seat with 39.9 inches headroom and 43.1 inches of legroom. The best the Santa Fe Sport can do is 39.6 inches of front headroom and a much tighter 41.3 inches of legroom.View Inventory
