2018 Kia Sportage Vs. 2018 Ford Escape Fontana, CA


Come by Valley Kia of Fontana to compare the all-new 2018 Kia Sportage versus the 2018 Ford Escape. Wherever your adventures take you, the Sportage is ready to handle the bumps along the way. Its Iso-Structure delivers rigidity. Along with extended body insulation and other features, this creates a smoother, quieter ride for the driver and passengers alike. Available on all 2018 Sportage trims, the Dynamax All-Wheel Drive system senses and adjusts traction requirements for changing road and weather conditions. Nimble handling and impressive power converge with surprising fuel-efficiency. Take your pick from two four-cylinder engines: the LX and EX come standard with a high-output 2.4-liter engine that is among the segment leaders, while the SX Turbo model gets an even more powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. And the 6-speed automatic transmission delivers a smoother, more efficient ride. Like the best driving companions, the Sportage lends a hand when you need it. Its available Smart Power Liftgate opens automatically by sensing your key, giving you hands-free access to the cargo area. Stay on track with the available Lane-Departure Warning System. This camera-based system monitors the position of your vehicle within its lane and helps warn you if it deviates, or is about to deviate, from the lane. The available Autonomous Emergency Braking system monitors vehicles ahead of you to help prevent a collision or, if unavoidable, reduce the impact.

The 2018 Sportage ensures a sense of security on every journey. Its Iso-Structure unibody boasts chassis rigidity based on Advanced High-Strength Steel. Inside, a complete array of active and passive safety systems help assure that your protection is the priority. A cushion of protection surround you and your passengers in the Sportage. Front and side airbags are controlled by an advanced sensor system that is designed to respond with the utmost immediacy. Every journey brings the expected and the unexpected. And every Sportage is designed to deliver a precise response during both. Featuring active safety systems that work automatically when you need them, the 2018 Sportage helps give you enhanced control on any road. Engineered to help keep you on track and in control.  Electronic Stability Control adjusts acceleration and braking in emergency situations. Hill-Start Assist Control helps keep your vehicle in place as you move off an incline. Advanced braking provides enhanced control. When activated in off-road conditions, Downhill Brake Control individually applies the brakes to maintain a constant speed down hills or slippery surfaces. The Antilock Braking System helps reduce skidding by modulating the brakes in emergency braking situations.

When compared to the 2018 Kia Sportage, the 2018 Ford Escape falls short. Escape has a long list of features that enhance your comfort and convenience. There’s the available Panoramic Vista Roof that extends more natural light to all occupants. The available heated steering wheel keeps your hands warm on the coldest days. Available SiriusXM Satellite Radio and Navigation with SiriusXM Traffic with Travel Link  provides a variety of entertainment choices in addition to navigation and traffic alerts. And that’s for starters. The available Panoramic Vista Roof features a large forward panel that tilts up or opens fully, plus a fixed rear skylight. So whether you’re sitting up front or in back, the Panoramic Vista Roof lets in the natural light. Fold both rear seat backs for a flat load surface and 68 cu. ft. of total cargo space behind the front seats. Or fold down either of the 60/40 split rear seat backs and still have room for a passenger. If you’re carrying items such as luggage, leave both seat backs up and you’ll have 34 cu. ft. of cargo space. For more space, available roof rack side rails with available crossbars let you carry more cargo, especially items that don’t transport easily inside the vehicle.
