Which One is the Better Choice for You?

The Ford Escape does have some advantages over the Nissan Rogue. It has more engine options that are more powerful. Its base price is also bit lower than the Rogue's. Where the Rogue steps ahead is with its value and fuel efficiency. While it only has one gasoline engine option that's less powerful than some of the Escape's, it delivers better mileage and comparable performance to most of powertrains.

More importantly, the Rogue's standard equipment has a richer spread of features than you'll find in the Escape. To get a real taste of the Escape's features, you need to climb above to some of its higher trims. You get a great experience with Rogue on the ground floor. That's why we consider it to be the better option for drivers in search of a compact SUV.

It's a similar story with the Honda CR-V. While the CR-V definitely wouldn't be a bad choice, the Rogue provides a better overall package that gives you more for your money. Similar to the Escape, you have to invest more in the CR-V to get its better features. The standard equipment on the Rogue? It's anything but "standard."
