The X-Trail has a bigger cargo space than the Escape/Tribute. The hard plastic surface is a boon if you bring wet and dirty stuff a lot.
The Tribute has many novelty features normally not seen in its class as standard equipment like puddle lamps, steering wheel mounted audio controls and power moonroof. The Escape has no such features but I like the exterior look much better. It is worthy of note that the A/C is very cold, even at the lowest setting.
Downsides of the Rav4 are the cramped interior a compared to these two, and the full time 4x4 which means it guzzles unnecessary gas.
Mga sirs salamat po sa mga info. Madami po ko nalaman. 1st time ko din po kc bibili ng sasakyan. Now im torn between xtrail and escape. But mas matimbang saken ang escape kc un tlga 1st choice ko before bcoz of its astig look. Ang concern ko lang before is ung fc nya but now i came to know ok nman pla ung 2.3L variant nya. Kung san nalang po ako makakahanap ng good deal un ang pipiliin ko. Thanks again guys
You can't go wrong with escape 2.3l...speed, handling, looks, space, power, etc...I'm a happy owner of 05 escape FC for long drive (Manila - Bicol) is 10-14km/L at 100-140 kph. City driving with moderate traffic 6-8km/L. madami at mura ang parts sa banawe.
Mga sirs, maraming salamat sa mga info at comments. It is very helpful for a newbie like me. So im decided now to get a ford escape 2.3l. A/t. Can u help me guys to find a good deal with my budget of 300k++. If u know somebody who is selling their escape just let me know. Ill be coming to phils nxt month.
One more thing. Where is the best place or site to look for a good deal? Is it ok to look on buy and sell sites? Bcoz most of it u need to deal with the agents so mas mahal na sha kasi may patong na. Ok sana kung sa direct owner.
Last na po. Wala kasi akong kilalang mekaniko to check the car. What are the major items na dapat ko pong icheck besides test driving it. Salamat po ulit
