The crossover SUV category has exploded in recent years, and it seems like every carmaker has gotten in on the action. This leaves the consumer with plenty of choices, but not all of them are created equal. This post is all about comparing two of the most popular crossovers on the market today: The 2019 Buick Envision and the 2019 Ford Escape.

Our Comparison: The 2019 Buick Envision vs. the 2019 Ford Escape

We’ll start with Ford’s vehicle, which is not without merits. The Escape sports a sleek look and more cargo space than you’ll find in the average crossover, both of which are impressive features. There are some areas, however, where the Escape fails to impress as much. Ride quality and cabin space come to mind.

In particular, we noticed:

  • A large dashboard that sacrifices legroom
  • Firm seats
  • A ride that prioritizes power over smoothness

That brings us to the Buick Envision, which is similar in many ways but also shines where the Escape comes up a little short. Buick’s compact SUV is designed for both power and efficiency. Its 2.5L 4-cylinder engine delivers 197 horsepower while achieving an estimated 26 mpg in combined fuel economy.

The Envision is built for handling, and its ride always feels smooth and steady. It’s built for handling, and the ride always feels smooth and steady. A few factors contribute to that:

  • The cabin is made to feel genuinely luxurious and is made with high-end materials.
  • The interior is wonderfully quiet and peaceful, thanks to QuietTuning™ technology.

All told, these vehicles share some overlap, but for us, the Buick is the clear winner. Of the two, it offers the more appealing ride and the most luxurious feel, without scrimping on performance or fuel economy.
