Don’t Vacation Without This – The 2019 Honda CR-V in Kenosha
The time is quickly approaching to plan out your next summer vacation. The only problem is, you still have to decide on your next family vehicle for that road trip. Luckily you’ve stumbled across this blog, and are about to read an in-depth comparison between the 2019 Honda CR-V in Kenosha, against the Ford Escape…
Fuel Costs and Mileage
If you like to take road trips for your summer getaway, then you’ll want to listen up. The fuel costs of operating this Honda instead of that Ford Escape is drastic in terms of mileage and type of gas. To perform at its most optimal, the CR-V only needs regular unleaded gasoline, while the Escape requires premium which can cost anywhere from 20 to 55 cents more per gallon. As for mileage, check out the results from the EPA test cycle:
|FWD||2.4 DOHC 4 cyl.||26 city/32 hwy*||21 city/29 hwy*|
|1.5 turbo 4 cyl.||28 city/34 hwy*||23 city/30 hwy*|
|AWD||1.5 turbo 4 cyl.||27 city/33 hwy*||22 city/28 hwy*|
Construction and Passenger Space
Once you experience the level of peace and quiet the CR-V can provide, you’ll never be able to go back. To remove any annoying humming and vibrations from the passenger area, this Honda utilizes computer-generated active noise cancellation technology. The Escape doesn’t have this, so you might have to deal with a temporary hum in the drum after a long trip. If you want to show off the silence with your friends and family, fitting everyone inside won’t be a hassle because it has more passenger volume than the Escape (105.9 vs. 98.7). With more shoulder, head, hip, and legroom, passengers in the CR-V won’t have to squeeze together for a good fit.
More Cargo Space with Easy Loading
With a near silent cabin and plenty of passenger space, the only other thing that could make this CR-V the best traveling companion is its cargo space. With the rear seat folded up, the CR-V has 39.2 cubic feet of space to work with, while the Escape only has 34. And when you fold down that rear seat, it increases to 75.8 making cargo room limitless. When loading up the gear, save time by pressing a switch to automatically lower the rear seats and breathe easy knowing that you only have to hoist up the suitcase 26 inches due to the lower life-over cargo hatch.
