Review the Ford Escape ST-Line 2019
Ford Escape had a bit of a false start a few years ago when everything went right with an upgrade and interior arrangement to bring it into the game. With the endless rise of SUVs, manufacturers now have to find a way to attract a few more pranks – or a few extra dollars per player.
Of course, the idea of adding performance-inspired variants is not new, hatchback ranges currently flooding with GT-line and other ‘GTI-lite’ variants seem to be working quite well. Well, thanks a lot.
Ford, being a veteran in this field, thinks giving his SUV Escape the ST-Line treatment could be a good way to get a few extra players and dollars.
Does it represent good value for the price? What features does it come with? 7/10
The ST-Line weighs $ 39,990 (plus on-road costs), which is $ 5000 easier than the top Titanium. Standard are 19-inch gunmetal alloys, nine-speaker stereo, dual-zone climate control, reversing camera, keyless start and start, front and rear parking sensors, cruise control, lights front and rear fog, sat nav, automatic headlights and wipers, partial leather trim, heated mirrors and electric folding and space-saving spare tires.
Our car has an extremely good value ‘Technology Package’. At $ 800, there’s no hesitation because you’ve upgraded the AEB forward for high speeds, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, driver attention detection, high beams automatic, active cruise and tire pressure sensors. Unfortunately, it’s not standard, really. There’s also a helpful but controversial hands-free tailgate for $ 950.
Is there anything interesting about its design? 7/10
Escape from the uterus is Kuga but was renamed in accordance with Ford’s extended SUV range. They start with E, you see – Everest, EcoSport, etc.
The Escape is a fairly familiar sight on our roads but it doesn’t really sell in the way of the Mazda CX-5.
The Escape can easily be identified as a Ford, repeating the Focus and Fiesta that are about to be replaced. Kuga’s original pout has been replaced by something a little more ‘open’.
For this facility, the ST-Line adds a 19-inch dark finish set of alloy, blacked grille, fog lights surround, roof rails and rear contour. It is quite light. Lower ride height helps, though. It might look a little different, but that’s not really the ST-Line brand.
Inside you get the same seat as the rest of the range along with red stitching on the gear lever and steering wheel. A set of alloy pedal, stainless steel slab and ST-Line floor mats complete the changes.
The interior hasn’t changed, and that’s not a bad thing except we have to talk about touchscreens. It works really well and has good dimensions but the awkward angle of the surrounding makes it hard to hit the target. It is a bit of a goal of its own because otherwise it is very good.
How realistic is the inner space? 8/10
The Escape is one of the more spacious midsize SUVs, although it doesn’t quite match the internal flexibility of the VW Tiguan. Rear seat space is spacious, with good head and leg room and plenty of leg room.
The rear of the vehicle is wide and wide open, convenient for uploading. The boot will take between 406 liters (rear seats up) and 1603 liters (reduced rear seats). There are four cupholders – two up front and two on the rear armrest, with bottle holders at each door. The central armrest box is deep and accommodating, and has some good space to store fragments and fragments.
What are the important stats for engine and transmission? 7/10
Escape’s four 2.0-liter turbo engines produce 178kW / 345Nm to help propel this 1.7-ton machine along. Power reaches all four wheels through a six-speed automatic.
Traction is rated at 750kg without bundles and 1600kg brakes.
How much fuel does it consume? 7/10
Ford thinks you will use 8.6L / 100km on the combined cycle. In the real world, including a 200km round trip from Sydney up to the Blue Mountains, we scored 10.2L / 100km.
The only movie is that it only runs on 95 RON premium unleaded. Having said that, the competitors obviously did the same if they had anything like the available power of the Ford engine.
What safety devices are equipped? What is a safety assessment? 8/10
ST-Line is equipped with seven airbags, ABS, stability and traction control, lower speed AEB, reverse traffic alert, blind spot sensor, reversing camera, rollover stabilization and collision warning. front.
The $ 800 tech package adds high-speed AEB, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, driver’s attention detection, high automatic headlights, active cruise and tire pressure sensor .
