2018 Ford Escape vs 2018 Mazda CX-5

Red Ford Escape and Mazda CX-5 models next to each other in comparison image

In today's automotive industry, crossover vehicles stand as a lasting testament to how quickly the needs and interests of consumers can shift. A few decades ago, it was almost unheard of to have vehicles that combined the compact power of sedans with the interior volume of SUVs. Today, however, this concept is commonplace, fronted by two models that, at one point, shared the same family title. Ford and Mazda used to be affiliated with each other, which is why many of their vehicles shared the same platform and features in years past. Today, however, they are as different as can be, but crossovers such as the Escape and CX-5, respectively, have staked their claim to the top of the market throne.

We invite you to join Kovatch Ford today as we take you through some extensive research and information that we've put together on both the 2018 Escape and 2018 CX-5 vehicles. There's something to love with each of these crossovers, and we hope you end up with a new favorite!

Test drive the 2018 Ford Escape in Nesquehoning PA

Recent developments have left the 2018 Mazda CX-5 with a beautiful, innovative driving experience for consumers to enjoy, complete with plenty of efficiency, responsiveness and infotainment connectivity. However, for greater high-end power and convenience from your drive, the 2018 Ford Escape still holds an upper hand. With a hands-free, foot-activated power liftgate as a standard feature, as well as Intelligent Four-Wheel Drive and AdvanceTrac® Roll Stability Control leading the way, you can handle any terrain that you come across. That means that all you need to do is gaze out of the Escape's panoramic sunroof as you head throughout life in a more comfortable and serene manner than the CX-5 can tout.

We hope you've taking a liking to the 2018 Escape, be sure to contact our Kovatch Ford sales team. We are more than happy to help you schedule a no-obligation test drive as soon as it's best for you to head to our dealership. Stop in whenever you can!
