2020 BMW X1 vs. 2020 Ford Escape - Bert Ogden BMW in McAllen, TX

Luxury doesn’t have to be out of reach. BMW makes owning a luxury model as simple as owning a non-luxury model like the Ford Escape — but with added perks. If you are considering a new vehicle and want the added benefits of a high-end model, here are just a few reasons you should consider the 2020 BMW X1 SAV® over the 2020 Ford Escape SUV.

Unparalleled Performance

The standard engine powering the 2020 BMW X1 is a four-cylinder TwinPower Turbo engine, matched with an eight-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmission, which cranks out 228 horsepower and launches the BMW X1 from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 6.3 seconds. While powerful in its own right, the 2020 Ford Escape just can’t keep up; its base engine is a 1.5-liter Ti-VCT EcoBoost®, paired with an eight-speed automatic gearbox and producing just 181 horsepower.

Advanced Technology

The 2020 BMW X1 boasts a more advanced infotainment system with a standard 8.8-inch touch screen. The 2020 Ford Escape makes SYNC® 3 optional — that’s right, it’s not even standard on every model. The BMW X1 also boasts inductive wireless device charging and comes with a three-month trial of a Wi-Fi Hotspot with a data plan included.

Safety First

The 2020 BMW X1 comes standard with Active Driving Assistant across the entire lineup. Included in this suite of safety technologies are Frontal Collision Warning with City Collision Mitigation, Speed Limit info, and Lane Departure Warning. The 2020 Ford Escape excels in this area as well with the standard Ford Co-Pilot360™ suite of technologies.

Luxurious Interior

As a luxury model, it is only fitting that the BMW X1 offers a more luxurious interior than the Ford Escape. Among the luxury features are available Dakota leather upholstery, an optional panoramic moonroof, an advanced vehicle and key memory system, and automatic climate control with micro-filter and air recirculation.
