Compare the 2017 Subaru Forester to the Ford Escape SUV


There's a lot to consider when you buy a sport utility vehicle. You want it to be stable and safe to drive, so that you can complete long road trips and short treks to the supermarket with equal grace. You also want it to be spacious and comfortable for your passengers, with all of the features that make modern vehicles so fun to drive and ride inside. Interior volume is important, too, especially if you do a lot of outdoor or fitness activities in your spare time. That's why the 2017 Subaru Forester is so popular with Minnesota shoppers, and it's why we think it's the right choice for you.

You'll always feel in control when you pilot the 2017 Subaru Forester. That's because it handles like a dream, with standard symmetrical all-wheel drive and vehicle dynamics control keeping you in command and on target no matter where you travel. The 2017 Forester also comes with an efficient SUBARU BOXER® engine, which returns 32 highway mpg when paired with the optional Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission. 

When you enter the cabin of the Forester, you'll find it spacious and welcoming, with 41.4 cubic feet of front headroom, 38 cubic feet of rear legroom and a whopping 108.3 cubic feet of overall passenger volume. These are all dimensions that outclass the competing 2017 Ford Escape SE FWD, and the new Forester has more cargo volume to boot. In fact, the new Forester trumps the Ford Escape in many ways, with a lower starting MSRP, superior shoulder room, a better turning radius, a larger fuel tank, plus the one-of-a-kind SUBARU STARLINK™ in-vehicle technology. All in all, once you see the Subaru Forester, you'll know the 2017 Ford Escape doesn't measure up.
