Let’s today look at the fight of our beloved model type – the sport utility vehicles. These vehicles can always show us something new and extraordinary; let’s hope that it will be this way also now.

These two cars start from less than $25,000, therefore in the SUVs segment they will not be considered as the most expensive ones. Particularly, new Ford Escape of the year 2013 will cost you just $22,470, while Hyundai of new generation will cost the buyer about $24,450. New Ford comes with the base engine of 2.5-Liters I4, which produces 168-horsepower. New Hyundai in term is equipped with 2.4-Liters I4, which is capable of giving about 190-horsepower. Though, both Ford and Hyundai are quite similar if it comes to fuel economy, they both offer about 22 miles per gallon in the city, though on the highway new Hyundai can give you about 2 miles per gallon more.

So in the end we still think that new Ford is just enough for the modern city and modern price conditions, even though it falls behind a little in certain areas.
