Current Model
The EcoSport subcompact crossover SUV has a tall stance that helps the driver get a good view out. It offers either a 1.0-liter, turbocharged three-cylinder engine that feels responsive in urban environments or a 2.0-liter four-cylinder.
The 2.0-liter comes with standard all-wheel drive. Its fuel economy of 24 mpg overall isn't stellar. Handling is very nimble, which makes the EcoSport fun in the corners. But the ride is stiff, and the cabin is loud. The controls are easy to master, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility is standard. The side-hinged rear hatch door can be annoying to use when parallel-parked. Blind spot warning with cross traffic warning is offered on higher trims, but neither forward collision warning nor automatic emergency braking is available.

The Ford Fiesta-based EcoSport jumps into the subcompact crossover market, featuring a tall stance and a side-hinged rear hatch door. It offers a either a 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder and 2.0-liter four-cylinder.
The 2.0-liter engine comes with standard all-wheel drive. Even with the larger of the two engines, the EcoSport is slow and at 24 mpg overall, fuel economy isn't stellar. Handling, however, is very nimble but the ride is stiff and the cabin is loud. Controls are easy to master, including Ford's Sync 3 infotainment system (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility are standard). Blind-spot warning with cross-traffic warning is offered on higher trims, but neither forward-collision warning nor automatic emergency braking are available.
