Crossovers are all the rage among new car buyers, and the 2018 Rav4 and the 2018 Escape are two popular models. With plenty of room for passengers and fuel efficient engines, these crossovers are also offered at an affordable starting price. However, one of them is missing some key active safety features in the base trim, and its cargo area doesn’t quite match up. Find out the winner of this comparison today at Watermark Toyota.

Cargo Volume and Safety Systems

A key benefit of a crossover is its increased cargo capacity over a sedan. You should have plenty of room for a load of groceries or the family dog with either model. However, the Rav4 not only has more cargo room behind the rear seats, but it has a larger interior volume in general. If you’re planning a camping trip out to Beech Bend Park, the Rav4 simply provides more room for supplies than the Escape. Another area that’s valued by Madisonville drivers is safety. Either on the highway or on narrow city streets, active safety features will work to keep your family safe by preventing dangerous situations from occuring. That’s why each and every Rav4 model comes with the confidence of Toyota Safety Sense. It includes the following active safety systems:

  • Lane Departure Alert and Prevention
  • Active Cruise Control 
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Pre-Collision Alert and Prevention

These are all important features to have, but in the Escape’s base trim, they’re not available to add. You’ll need to pay more for the SE model then add a separate options package to receive these active safety features, and that all adds up quick.
