Today let’s look at the fight of two great Sport Utility Vehicle models that are interesting for us not just because of their great performance and driving experience, but also because they are ones of the most affordable cars in the segment, and offer one of the best performance-price ratio. The two models for today are both dated with 2013 year and these are the Ford Escape and Hyundai Santa Fe. Let’s get into more technical details!

The prices of these models do not get higher than $25,000. New Ford Escape will cost you $22,500, while new Hyundai Santa Fe costs about $24,500. new SUV from Ford is equipped with a 2.5-Liter Inline 4 engine that comes with front wheel drive and can produce up to 168-horsepower. In turn new Hyundai got the 2.6-Liter engine also Inline 4 but gives out the power output of 190-horses and also comes with the front-wheel drive. Though Hyundai falls in fuel economy by one mile per gallon in the city and on the highway.

But in the end we see that new Hyundai offers more power but also costs a little higher, therefore we think that Ford Escape has a perfect ratio of power to price, and so it wins the fight!
