Interesting, somewhat surprising comparison
Escape vs Tucson Hybrids
Tucson stands out in many ways, Escape more basic / simple / functional but very competent.. Although the Tucson wins on refinement & interior the tester surprisingly the tester preferred Escape seats (softer leather & better padding) …
In this comparison the Escape exceeds EPA estimates by a lot; Tucson exceeded EPA by a bit.

A bit biased here, but the Escape wasn't even a consideration for me. With the cargo and passenger volume it feels like it's nearly a full class size down in comparison to the Tucson, Rav4, Rogue, and CRV. I have similar feelings about the CX-5 and Forester. So not really a fair comparison on fuel economy. The Rav4 cabin comfort also wasn't in the same league as the Rogue, CRV, and Tucson. The Rogue doesn't have a hybrid so to me, the top two in the class are the CRV and Tucson and it's not even close.

Completely agree. Tested a Rogue, CRV, CX-5, Rav4, Outback, and Santa Cruz

Sat in the escape and felt very cramped, didn't test drive. The Tucson was a better fit for me and having a family that travels and camps

Honestly wish I could have snagged a Tucson Hybrid, but needed a car now and none in sight

Lack of available AWD with the Escape Hybrid was a deal breaker for me.
