The diminutive EcoSport may have outwardly goofy styling and tiny-looking wheels, but its best characteristic is its surprisingly nimble handling on the road and around our test track. The EcoSport drives more like a sporty car than a dull SUV, with its even-keel ability to take corners quickly, and some welcome feedback through the steering wheel.

    Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.
