2020 Subaru Forester Vs. 2020 Ford Escape Comparison Review

When it comes to small SUVs, the 2020 Subaru Forester and the 2020 Ford Escape are top contenders. So which one comes out on top? Let's take a look at both the 2020 Forester and the 2020 Edge when it comes to design, technology, performance, and safety.

Design

The Subaru Forester comes with an 8.7-inch ground clearance that makes it more capable in all-terrain conditions. The Ford Escape only offers a 7.8-inch ground clearance. The Forester is also designed to give you better headroom. With the 2020 Forester, you get up to 41.2 inches of front headroom. Meanwhile, the Ford Edge only offers up to 39.9 inches of front headroom.

Technology

In an SUV, one of the top technology features you have to consider is the sound system. The Subaru Forester offers you a premium Harmon Kardon stereo system that comes with 14-speakers. The Ford Escape offers you a premium B&O Sound System from Bang & Olufsen that only comes with ten speakers. That means the Forester's premium sound system can provide you with a fuller audio experience than the best sound system offered by the Ford Escape.

Performance

When it comes to performance, you want to make sure that you can send power to all four wheels when you need to anywhere around Bartlett. That's why the Subaru Forester comes with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive, even on its base model. The Ford Edge does not offer standard all-wheel-drive on its base model.

Safety

Looking at safety, the Subaru Forester comes standard with the Eyesight Driver Assist suite of features. The Eyesight system is designed to monitor traffic, optimize your cruise control settings, and the system comes with lane departure warning with sway warning. The Ford Escape comes standard with the Co-Pilot 360 suite of driver-assist features. While the Co-Pilot 360 comes with many of the same features of Subaru's Eyesight system, it does not offer a sway warning with its lane departure alert system.
