The 2020 Ford Escape recently underwent a complete overhaul in its overall design. First released in 2000, Ford made a drastic overhaul in its appearance back in 2013 with the third generation of the crossover SUV. However, the 2020 model marks the very first release of the 2020 Escape. One of the compact SUV's chief competitors is the Kia Sportage. It was originally released in South Korea back in 1993. However, the SUV did not make its way over to the United States until the third generation release, which came in 2010. Now, if you're shopping for a compact SUV, you'll need to consider a 2020 Ford Escape vs 2020 Kia Sportage comparison. Here is everything you need to know about the two compact SUVs and how the vehicles stack up against one another.
When you compare the two vehicles, you'll find (in most cases) the Kia is around $1,000 less expensive. At least with the initial MSRP. However, that doesn't tell the full story. The Ford Escape has safety features you need to pay extra for on the Kia, which, when added, makes the Ford Escape less expensive. The top-tier Escape has better engine specs, has more cargo room, offers WiFi, and the Titanium package can tow more than twice that of the Sportage. So when comparing the 2020 Ford Escape and the 2020 Kia Sportage, there isn't much of a comparison, and the Ford Escape comes out on top.
