When looking for a new Ford SUV, you'll see there are a range of models to choose among. Each offer our drivers in West Chester, Glen Mills, and Malvern their own set of benefits.

Here at Fred Beans Ford of West Chester, we wanted to take a closer look at two of the more compact models Ford has within their SUV family. Check out our Ford Escape vs. Ford EcoSport comparison below to get a sense of which model is best for your driving needs.

The Interior Space of the 2019 Escape vs 2019 EcoSport

With five seats in each of these SUVs, you will have more space than a sedan for friends who climb into the back or for the kid's car seats. The Ford Escape's interior has 98.7 cubic feet of passenger space. This will give you 39.9 inches of headroom up front. Even the rear passengers will be comfortable with 39 inches of headroom.

The EcoSport's Interior isn't quite as spacious but is still a roomy ride for everyone with 91.1 cubic feet of passenger volume. The front seats have 39.6 inches of headroom in the 2019 EcoSport and 37.5 inches of headroom in the back row.

Additionally, these SUVs give you more room for cargo than the standard trunk of a sedan. The Ford EcoSport has 20.9 cubic feet of cargo volume behind both rows. You can also use up to 50 cubic feet of volume for cargo by simply folding the rear seats down. Longer and taller gear will be easy to fit inside the 2019 Escape with a maximum cargo capacity of 68 cubic feet. It even has 34 cubic feet of cargo volume for you to use in the back when all the seats are occupied.

The Fuel Economy of these SUVs

With these models just being 2-row SUVs, you also get a vehicle that is fun to drive and handles easily when riding around town or out on the highway. Due to their size, they also are able to limit the amount of fuel you will need to use during your daily commute.

They both get a standard 29 highway MPG. This helps make each tank of gas last while cruising up 202 or out on Route 1. When driving around the borough or through the city, the Ford EcoSport's fuel economy will continue to give you excellent fuel economy with its 27 city MPG. The Ford Escape's fuel economy boasts a standard 21 city MPG.

Features Standard in Each Model

Both of these SUVs also come with a range of features, from technology inside the vehicle to safety systems built into their design. With the 2019 Ford Escape, you can back up out of your driveway or a parking spot easier and safer with the Rear View Camera.

In the Ford EcoSport, you and your passenger can keep your phone batteries powered with the smart-charging USB ports. Each of them also has Torque Vectoring Control, which will give you great handling around the curved roads of Chester County.

Come See Both of These Ford Models at Our Dealership

As you can see, both of these Ford SUVs offer versatile interior space as well as efficient performance. The differences though between the Ford Escape vs. Ford EcoSport may help you decide which model is better suited for you.

If your daily commute is less on the highways and more on the streets around West Chester, Glen Mills, and Malvern, the 2019 Ford EcoSport will make each tank of gas last longer. If you are looking to get a 2-row SUV with a great amount of passenger and cargo space, the 2019 Ford Escape will give you more room for both.

Whichever of the two you want, you can come check either of them out here at Fred Beans Ford of West Chester. Just contact us and we can schedule a time for you to test drive the Ford SUV you are interested in getting.
