I fancy a change, and I'm requesting opinion on changing from a 2015 262 7P escape to a 2021 231 SE.

Am i going to notice a huge drop in performance?

0-60 times are identical but there is a reduction in torque however I don't tow anything. Its more about general driveability.

Incidentally I've done 70K in the Escape and its been brilliant, one of the best cars I've ever owned.

Think long and hard about the reasons you bought a 2015 Escape with 4Xmotion rather than an SE/R-line with just 4Motion - if those reasons still exist, keep your Escape.

Keep the Escape. It's a no-brainer.

Some great responses here, and its appriciated.

I went for the Escape because I liked the black trim, and I felt it would be less prone to stone chips and wear and tear. I've never used the off road facility/low box/diff locks.

I also like the idea of both the Escape, and the SE being a bit of an anti fashion SUV!

Currently sticking with the Escape.

Found a perfect replacement being a white 2021 SE, but couldn’t do a deal.

VWs own valuation tool, WBAC, Motorway and a few others valued mine at £13k.

VW dealer in question wouldn’t budge off £10k, nor discount theirs, so no deal!
