The horsepower of the Ford is by 30 hp bigger in comparison to the BMW X1. While the difference is little it should not affect the vehicles performance to a large extent.
Maximum torque of the Ford is 48 newton meters bigger than the BMW X1. For this reason, the Ford will accelerate somewhat swifter and be better to overtake other cars. Appropriate use of the flexibility of the engine will also make that the Ford Escape III 1.6 EcoBoost 180HP automatic will use on average less fuel per 100 kilometers.
The trunk of the Ford Escape III is 131 percent larger compared to the BMW X1 Crossover. It is perceptible difference therefore in this category the Ford Escape III will be much more handy. The larger the boot, the more luggage you can hold.
Maximal torque RPM
A greater range as well as a lower number of revolutions at which the maximum torque is produced affects an engine’s efficiency and flexibility. However, to get a whole view on an engine efficiency, it is always worth to see a torque performance graph.
Distance between two sides of a vehicle influences on interior space for travelers as well as stability while driving. The width of the Ford Escape III 1.6 EcoBoost 180HP automatic is larger only by 3 % in comparison to the BMW and is not really important. The medium for the „compact SUV” segment amounts to 1,797 millimeters and is by 2 percent smaller than the same feature of the Ford Escape III.
The Ford is 22 % longer in comparison to the BMW X1. The length of the car is important when it comes to driving comfort and room in the boot. The Ford Escape III very likely will be offering to it's passangers more room for legs. At the same time the Ford Escape III 1.6 EcoBoost 180HP automatic will be better driven but the BMW will be a slightly easier to park because of shorter length .
Model release date
The difference in date of commencement of production between these two vehicles is only 4 years, however, new technologies for vehicles are appearing at a staggering pace what may cause that the Ford Escape III 1.6 EcoBoost 180HP automatic may have more advanced technologies thanks to which everyday usage of it may be more comfortable.
If you are a tall driver or you carry in the trunk stuffs of big size, the Ford Escape III, which is by 139 millimeters higher than the BMW X1, would be appropriate pick for you. However, these two vehicles do not differ much in its height and it should not be much noticeable.
A stick shift with which the BMW X1 is equipped is less complex built and is cheaper in usage, however, also it is less comfortable because it requires the driver to put on clutch to change speeds very often, especialy in a bussy urban traffic where drivers have lots of stop and go conditions. An automatic gearbox which is in the Ford Escape III with 6 – speeds gearbox is in our opinion better choice.
