Here at Toyota of Orlando, we know that Toyota isn’t the only automotive brand for you to consider when you’re in the market for a new ride. (We may think it’s the best, but that’s a different story.) Comparison shopping is just part of the process for almost every shopper, so we’re here to make your experiences easy and give you the information straight off the bat! One of the most popular new compact SUVs on the market is the best-selling 2015 Toyota RAV4, and we highly recommend it for its efficiency, technology, safety features, and family-friendliness. However, it’s not without competitors, like the also-popular Ford Escape. We’re putting these two SUVs in the ring together to see how they fare!

Connectivity and Safety Technology:
It’s easy to stay connected in the Orlando Toyota RAV4 and Ford Escape. Both of these SUV options come with display screen audio system options, as well as Bluetooth wireless streaming and iTunes tagging. However, we think this new Toyota SUV has a bit of an edge with features like Toyota Entune (a multimedia system of apps with tons of real-time information for maximum efficiency), Sirius XM Satellite Radio options, and Entune Audio. It’s also got the Toyota Star Safety System woven into its design – this means you have a carefully designed and tested set of six safety technologies that can take your security to the next level!
