Compared To Mazda CX-5 2017



The Escape (except S) offers optional parking sensors to help warn the driver about vehicles, pedestrians or other obstacles behind or, optionally, in front of the vehicle. The CX-5 doesn’t offer a front parking aid.

Compared To Chevrolet Equinox 2017

The Equinox offers an available collision warning system without the automated brake feature that would prevent or reduce the collision if the driver fails to react.
