Design & Style

There are a number of high-quality materials used to embellish the inside of the Ford Escape. Passenger support and comfort are prioritized, and this is obvious in the car's seats and leg and headroom. The vehicle has accommodation space to support up to five people in both of its two rows of seating. Seats in both rows provide enough leg and headroom as well as similar levels of comfort.

The Mazda CX-5 has a cabin interior that is near-luxury and it is one of the car’s main selling points. It does stand out in its class, making use of soft-touch elements across its cabin surfaces. The car can seat five people but there is no adequate leg and headroom at either row. Its back row is best left for children especially on further distances.

Technology & Safety

The Escape features a selection of tech advances that range from six speakers, a 42 inch screen, to WiFi hotspot, and USB ports. Safety tools of the car are made up of rear traffic alert, blind spot monitor, auto emergency brakes, pedestrian detection, lane departure and keep assists, drowsiness monitor, and MyKey functions (audio and speed limiter).

The Mazda CX-5 comes with several technological features such as Android Auto, 10.25 inch screen, WiFi hotspot, USB ports, Bluetooth, HD radio, and four speakers. Safety tools of the CX-5 include blind spot monitoring, cruise control, rearview camera, rear traffic alert, collision warning, and departure warning.


The Ford Escape promises a solid performance, putting out 181 hp from its turbo-three engine. Its gas mileage can fetch up to 28 mpg for city commutes and 34 mpg for highways.

The Mazda CX-5 can deliver a smooth engine performance, making 187 hp from a four-cylinder engine on an auto transmission. The car can return a gas mileage of 24 mpg and 30 mpg for city and highway travels.

The Bottom Line

Every time you climb in the driver's seat, you can expect a pleasant ride regardless of distance. Because of its excellent combination of affordability and comfort, the Ford Escape is an excellent option for a family car or as a daily commute vehicle.
