The Ford EcoSport Brings Style to the Road

 // // //

Bringing style to the road has never been easier. The new EcoSport makes every maneuver and gear shift attractive with its sleek design. While it certainly looks good, its design also presents an aerodynamic silhouette that helps it maximize its performance. With standard quad beam headlights - or available LED signature lighting - leading the way, there'll be no mistaking you.

A Spacious Interior Meets Premium Entertainment Technology

Need room for passengers? We've got it. Looking for cargo space? It's there, too. The interior of the EcoSport provides space aplenty for your crew, and everything you need to bring. The extra head and leg room will certainly make the ride an enjoyable one for every passenger. And when you're seated on an available heated, leather-trimmed front seat, you'll enjoy the ride, too.

You know what else will make the ride enjoyable? The array of technology inside the EcoSport. Available SYNC 3 technology with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability uses voice-recognition to connect your smartphone with and navigate from your vehicle. But navigation isn't limited to your voice; you can access all of your entertainment on an available eight-inch touchscreen.

That music sounds even better when it's flowing through the available B&O PLAY, Premium Audio System by HARMAN. That means you'll get to cruise while your favorite music sounds that best it ever has.

The Ford EcoSport Brings Performance and Safety Together

Under the hood of the EcoSport, you'll find a turbocharged 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine that combines power and lightweight design for optimum performance. Paired with available Intelligent 4WD, the EcoBoost has it where it counts under the hood, and on the pavement. Plus, auto start-stop technology helps you save fuel along the way.

The EcoSport also puts an extra set of eyes on the road to help you. Available BLIS with cross-traffic alert uses sensors to "keep an eye" on your blind spot. When a vehicle enters it, BLIS will alert you with an illuminated light on your side view mirror. And when a vehicle crosses behind you while you're backing up, it'll let you know that, too.

2018 Ford EcoSport vs. 2018 Honda HR-V

  • Safety Features: Your 2018 Ford EcoSport offers the available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert, and while the Honda HR-V does make it's Lane Watch feature an option, that only works on the passenger-side mirror, and no cross-traffic alert to be found.
  • Feel the Power: Take the wheel of the 2018 Ford EcoSport SES and you'll find a 2.0-liter, 166-horsepower engine, which more than bests the 2.8-liter, 141-horsepower engine found in the 2018 Honda HR-V.
  • All-Wheel Drive (AWD) Capability: Both the 2018 Ford EcoSport and the 2018 Honda HR-V offer available all-wheel drive (AWD), but they each start as front-wheel drive (FWD) setups.
  • Trailering: While the 2018 Ford EcoSport can't pull as much as the Ford F-150, with standard front and rear tow hooks, your 2018 Ford EcoSport (when properly equipped) can achieve 1,400 pounds of max towing capacity—meanwhile, it seems like Honda recommends not towing anything in the 2018 HR-V. What a shame.

2018 Ford EcoSport vs. 2018 Mazda CX-3

  • Price: Price is pretty even between these two subcompact rivals, with the 2018 Ford EcoSport starting with an MSRP of $19,995 and the 2018 Mazda CX-3 starting with an MSRP of $20,110.
  • Passenger Space: Despite the 2018 Mazda CX-3 being a full seven inches longer than the 2018 Ford EcoSport, you'll actually find more passenger space in the latter. The 2018 EcoSport offers 91.1 cubic-feet of max passenger space, which beats out the 2018 Mazda CX-3's 87.6 cubic-feet. This translates into more front leg room, more second leg room, more front head room, and more second hip room in the 2018 Ford EcoSport. We hope those Mazda drivers out there like a cramped ride.
  • Aesthetics: While beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder, there's no denying that these two subcompacts are quite different looking. The 2018 EcoSport is decidedly more athletic, while the 2018 Mazda CX-3 attempts simplicity, but comes out looking a bit understated and bland.

2018 Ford EcoSport vs. 2018 Chevrolet Trax

  • Price: If you're looking for an affordable compact crossover, Pontiac, MI drivers will probably appreciate the more affordable starting price of the 2018 Ford EcoSport, which starts at $19,995, while the 2018 Chevy Trax starts about a grand higher, with an MSRP of $21,000.
  • Cargo Room: While they're both compact, you'll find just a bit more cargo room in the 2018 Ford EcoSport, which sees 20.9 cubic-feet behind the seats, while the 2018 Chevy Trax offers 18.7 cubic-feet behind the seats; compare max cargo room and the trend holds—the 2018 EcoSport offers 50 cubic-feet behind the first row, but the 2018 Chevy Trax only serves up 48.4 cubic-feet.
  • Can It Tow?: As with the 2018 Honda HR-V, while the 2018 Ford EcoSport can tow up to 1,400 pounds, there seems to be no recommended tow rating for the 2018 Chevy Trax.
