  • A comparably-equipped RAV4 will cost you significantly less than the Escape does, and we know that money talks and spending more to get the same features doesn't make sense.
  • The Smart Key System is offered on the lower trim levels of the RAV4, yet the Escape doesn't offer this important feature until higher trims.
  • Leather steering wheel is a premium feature that the RAV4 offers on lower trims, but in order to have this on the Escape you will need to spend a lot more since it is not offered on the base trims.

Safety Technology

  • Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) is offered on the RAV4 and includes Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, however this is not available on the Escape and in order to have the features in this system, you need to spend a lot more money.
  • The RAV4 offers the Star Safety System with Brake Assist, but again, this is a package that is exclusive to Toyota and therefore isn't available on the Ford Escape.
