Whenever you compare two vehicle models, price tends to be one of the main categories you focus on. When it comes to comparing the 2017 Hyundai Tucson vs the 2017 Ford Escape, you'll love the price of the Hyundai. This model has a starting MSRP of $22,700, which is less than the Escape's starting MSRP of $23,600. Plus, when you factor in everything you get with the Hyundai, it's even sweeter.

Fuel Efficiency

The Ford Escape will claim that it's a better choice because it offers three engine options. However, what it dishes out in choices it lacks in efficiency. The Tucson offers a 2.0L inline four-cylinder that generates 164 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque while also getting an EPA-estimated 23 city and 30 highway mpg. The other engine, a 1.6L turbo GDI, kicks things up a bit by offering 175 hp and offering an EPA-estimated 32 highway mpg.

When you compare this to the Ford, you'll be disappointed. This vehicle offers three engine choices: a 2.5L iVCT that generates 168 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque; a 1.5L EcoBoost iVCT engine the delivers 179 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque; and a 2.0L EcoBoost engine that offers 245 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. However, it only gets an EPA-estimated 21 city and 29 highway mpg, which means you'll spend more time at the pump.

Convenience and Comfort

When you drive an SUV that can fit up to five passengers, you want to be sure it's comfortable and convenient. The 2017 Hyundai Tucson does just that. This model comes standard with a hands-free liftgate, so you can easily open the cargo area without having to fuss with your keys. In addition, this model includes heated front and rear seats, so you can be comfortable when the weather is cold. For those hot days, front seat passengers will enjoy the ventilated front seats too. If you're looking for any of this in the Ford, you won't find it.

To make the Hyundai even more attractive, Kelley Blue Book said that this model had the lowest cost to own over six years. This means that you'll dish out less money in maintenance, service and fuel on this model compared to others in its class-including the Ford Escape.
