Whether you’re getting up to speed on Interstate 70 or towing a boat out to Lake Shawnee, that extra power will come in handy. In addition, at higher trim levels, the Escape provides more luxurious features than the CR-V. See if there are any available features you just can’t live without:

  • Heated steering wheel for cold Topeka mornings

  • SecuriCode Keyless-Entry Keypad that enhances the Escape’s overall security

  • 10-Speaker Sony Audio system for concert quality sound on the go

  • Panoramic Vista Roof with a clear view of the Kansas sky

In addition, Torque Vectoring Control gives the Escape an edge when navigating slippery road surfaces. If you’re searching for it in the CR-V, you’re out of luck. You’ll have to settle for a crossover that isn’t as a capable in tough conditions.
