The Ford Escape III has by 58 % more horsepower in relation to Subaru XV. The Ford Escape III will be distinctly more dynamically accelerate thanks to grater amout of horses under its hoot. Also maneuvers like overtaking and passing cars or obstacles while driving should be much more easier for a car equipped with stronger engine.
The Ford Escape III has 66 percent more torque when compared to the Subaru. The difference at this level is relevant, what means
that the Ford Escape III will accelerate significantly better.
The boot of the Ford Escape III is 627 liters bigger in relation to the Subaru XV. It is sensible difference therefore in this category the Ford Escape III will be much more convenient. The larger the boot, the more baggage you can hold.
Maximal torque RPM
A greater range and a lower number of revolutions at which the maximum torque is delivered has an impact on an engine’s efficiency and flexibility. Still, to have a full perspective on a car’s engine performance, it is always recommended to check a torque graph.
Distance between two sides of a vehicle directly affects interior space for travelers and also stability while driving. The Ford Escape III 1.6 EcoBoost 180HP automatic is widther by 3 percent than the Subaru XV and is not really relevant. The average for the „small off-road 4x4” segment is 1,797 millimeters and is by 44 millimeters smaller than the same feature of the Ford Escape III.
Ford Escape III 1.6 EcoBoost 180HP automatic has 2 percent longer wheelbase than the Subaru XV. A longer wheelbase provides more stable and comfortable ride, especially when driving fast. It also provides more storage space. But, cars with a longer wheelbase are not as maneuverable as those with a shorter length between its axles.
Number of gears
The Ford Escape III has a one extra
speed in comparison to the
Subaru XV. Most often this
additional gear is a very
tall one thanks to which the previous
speeds can be shorter in order to
allow increased acceleration in the
lower gears. One more speed as well will contribute to smaller
fuel consumption and CO2 output.
The Ford Escape III is 22 % longer in comparison to the Subaru XV. Long vehicles have more interior space and in most cases have bigger trunk. While the Ford Escape III seems to be better option for families or persons who love the idea of convenient driving, the Subaru XV 1.6i 114HP manual 4x4 may appeal to city drivers as it will not make problems with parking and will be easier for turning in narrow streets.
Model release date
The difference in date of commencement of production between these two vehicles is only 1 year, however, new technologies for vehicles are appearing at a fast pace what may cause that the Ford Escape III 1.6 EcoBoost 180HP automatic may feature more advanced solutions thanks to which everyday usage of it may be more comfortable.
The higher a car is, the the more convenient is a getting in to it and greater capacity of carrying big amount of luggage to it. The difference at the level of 4 percent to the advantage of the Ford Escape III is insignificant and should not be really noticeable.
A stick shift that is placed in the Subaru XV 1.6i 114HP manual 4x4 is less complex built and is cheaper in use, however, it is less comfortable because it requires the driver to work with the clutch to change speeds and it can be lot of inconvenience in a congested urban traffic where we have lots of frequent stop and go conditions. An automatic gearbox which is put in the Ford with gears in the amount of 6 – speeds gearbox is in our opinion better to use.
