Let's see how the 2015 Ford Escape stands up to the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.
Want to spend a fortune on a car? We didn't think so, and you definitely won't when you choose a 2015 Ford Escape over the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. The budget-friendly Escape has an MSRP of $22,960 while the Santa Fe Sport begins at $24,950 -- which will save you $2000 before you even start negotiations at Plattner's Chiefland Ford! And you'll be pleased with the standard features you get on the 2015 Ford Escape with that price, including integrated blind spot mirrors, a rear-view camera and color screen which are all optional on the Santa Fe Sport. The 2015 Ford Escape takes the crown.
You'll feel the throttle of the three engines offered with the 2015 Ford Escape-- a 2.5L I4 with168 hp, a 1.6L EcoBoost I4 with 178 hp and a 2.0L EcoBoost I4 with 240 horses. A 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission is standard with the EcoBoost engines offering optional AWD. By contrast, the Santa Fe offers two engines -- a 2.4L I4 with 190 horses and a 2.0L I4 Turbo with 265 hp, with both also mated to a 6-speed automatic with optional AWD. While the Santa Fe Sport offers slightly more power, fuel efficiency is sacrificed with its 20 city/27 highway mpg vs. the 2015 Escape's much better 22/31 mpg!
If your vehicle isn't comfortable, driving becomes a chore -- but not in the 2015 Ford Escape. With its ample front headroom of 39.9 inches and legroom of 43.1 inches, it beats the Santa Fe Sport easily with it only offering up 39.6 inches of front headroom and a cramped 41.3 inches of legroom.
