What happens when you want all of the capabilities of an SUV, but don’t want or need all of that space, and are looking for something with a little better fuel efficiency? The first type of vehicle that you should be looking at is a crossover. These versatile vehicles can do it all, offering plenty of interior space for passengers, plenty of cargo space in the rear, and plenty of exciting driving opportunities on the road. With how popular crossovers have been becoming, we wanted to compare one of our most popular vehicles to the competition, with the 2015 Kia Sportage vs 2015 Ford Escape comparison.

Both the Sportage and Escape are very affordable vehicles with the Kia being the slightly lowered priced model. Both vehicles are available in three different models, with different engine packages and options for each. Each also comfortably seats five passengers.
