The 2016 Toyota RAV4 and the 2017 Escape for sale in Montreal, Lachine and Brossard have long been benchmarks in the SUV category. Completely redesigned in 2013, they both offer a more modern and improved look that is charming drivers from the South Shore to Verdun. These are both excellent cars, but the pressing question is the following: which is the better buy?
Offered at an extremely low base price for an SUV, the 2016 Ford Escape SE 1.6 EcoBoost TA can be had for $ 27 599. On the other hand, the 2016 Toyota RAV4 is much more expensive: we’re talking more than $ 32 665! You might think that given the price it is a much better vehicle than the Ford, but that’s far from the truth.
The proof, the powerful engine of the 2017 Escape delivers a net power of 181 horsepower and 185 ft.-lb., allowing it to tow 909 kg. Although usually recognized for its strength, the 2016 RAV4 only produces 176 horsepower and can only tow 680 kg.
Even when it comes to highway fuel consumption, it’s the Ford SUV that still dominates. It only needs 7,8 L/100km, while the Toyota sucks back nearly 8,3 L/100km.
Finally, the 2016 RAV4 is still a good SUV to buy on Montreal’s South Shore, but it doesn’t stand up to the Escape. In fact, for a significantly lower price, the Escape will offer you better performance features as well as a lower fuel consumption. That’s why it is the better deal in Montreal and that we strongly suggest you take test-drive before making you decision.
