Which SUV is right for you and your family? The Honda CR-V has a long reputation as one of the most spacious and versatile vehicles in its class, but it's up against some tough competition. How does it stack up against the stylish new Ford Escape? Both vehicles are loaded with cutting-edge technology, advanced safety features, and easy smartphone-compatible entertainment. But it's the basics that matter most to many Oklahoma families. When we compare the most important differences between the 2016 Honda CR-V vs 2017 Ford Escape, we can see why the 2016 Honda CR-V still comes out ahead where it matters.  

Space is a top priority for so many SUV buyers, and that's where the 2016 Honda CR-V truly stands out.
