It’s time for you to get an SUV upgrade! May we offer some assistance with your new car decision? We have tons of new SUVs on the lot, but one has consistently impressed not only the Fiesta Honda employees, but our customers, too! With unbelievable fuel economy, features, power and more, the CR-V beats out competitor SUVs in several ways. Let’s take a dive into the details of how the 2016 Ford Escape doesn’t stand a chance next to the 2016 CR-V in San Antonio!

Firstly, let’s start with safety. The 2016 CR-V has multiple safety features that make it top of the chart in safety! Things like the Standard Collision Mitigation Braking System – a system in which uses forward mounted sensors to warn the driver of a possible collision keep the whole family safe. Not to mention that the CR-V will brake automatically at full-force to reduce force of the crash if driver does not respond to the warning, preventing many accidents. You’ll also get a standard rearview camera in the CR-V! All of these elements contribute to the5-star driver crash safety rating in the NHTSA front crash test, 4-star passenger crash safety rating in the NHTSA front crash test and 5-star front seat side impact rating in the NHTSA side impact test. The Ford Escape does not include some of the safety features tat the CR-V does, earning it a lower score on crash tests.

Now let’s touch on technology. The 2016 Honda CR-V has top-of-the-line safety features that make it stand out amongst other SUVs, like the 2016 Escape. The CR-V has one-touch power windows, smart entry keyless remote (standard on the EX/EX-L and Touring), a standard locking fuel door with remote release, a built-in pollen filter and adaptive cruise control. Like the safety comparison, the Escape can’t keep up!

The Escape also can’t keep up when it comes to power. The CR-V has a whopping 185 horsepower while the Ford Escape just barely holds its own at 182 horsepower. We can’t forget to tell that even with more power, the CR-V gets better fuel economy with 25 in the city and 33 on the highway*. The Escape on the other hand gets just 22 city/32 highway.

As you can see, the 2016 CR-V in San Antonio clearly beats out the Ford Escape. And we don’t want to brag, but the CR-V has also won more recognition like being an IIHS “Top Safety Pick Plus” (the Escape is only a standard “Top Pick”), and it’s recommended by Consumer Reports. Make the smart decision and go with the new CR-V from Fiesta Honda! We know you won’t be disappointed!
