Inside the model, you'll be able to find standard features like a touchscreen infotainment system and a rearview camera. In addition, you'll be able to stay well connected on the road through the available VW Car-Net App-Connect system for smartphones, which integrates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
But we know that owning a vehicle isn't always about having fun. Sometimes you need to handle some heavy duty tasks, which is where the available 4MOTION all-wheel drive system comes in. Though the Escape offers an available four-wheel drive system, its standard towing capacity falls below that of the Tiguan. The only way for the model to exceed the Tiguan's towing capacity is by equipping the vehicle with the 2.0L EcoBoost engine available on higher trim levels and the Class II Trailer Tow Package.
