No matter which engine you choose, you will have a sporty and easy to handle ride. The Ford Escape has quick steering and sharp reflexes that makes it one of the better-handling crossovers available. The Mazda CX-5 on the other hand only has two engine types and has rough handling. It is a little clumsy especially during merging and and changing lanes maneuvers.
