The 2020 Ford Ecosport is the smallest of Ford’s developing crossover SUV lineup. Its metropolis-pleasant size is about the only factor going for it: energy, security, and interior high-quality are all underneath par. We fee it 4. out of ten. (Go through far more about how we fee cars.)
For 2020, the Ecosport will get no significant alterations other than a cargo management program and seat-back again pocket as conventional on SE and over.
The Ecosport has been on sale about the world-wide market for a long time and in several techniques its age and relative amount of sophistication are apparent. A tall stance, blunt entrance finish, and abrupt rear hatch make for awkward proportions, and the Ecosport’s trim pieces glance dated compared to sleeker rivals. The interior is no distinct, the cabin is neatly organized, but product high-quality is considerably underneath typical.
Overview proceeds underneath
Front-wheel drive is conventional and all-wheel drive is available, and the Ecosport is inspired by either a turbo-three or an inline-4, both equally of which ship energy to a 6-velocity automated. Its small wheelbase and spunky turbo engine would suggest sprightly driving dynamics, but this is not the circumstance. Journey and dealing with are typical, and steering is boring.
In spite of its modest size, the Ecosport provides enough interior room, with a roomy back again seat. This is at the expense of cargo room, nevertheless, and with a higher load flooring and side-opening tailgate, it is not the most realistic compact SUV.
Crash-exam scores are a problem, with NHTSA scores of just four stars in general.
Base models start at over $twenty,000, which negates this crossover’s value play, but energy capabilities are conventional as effectively as Bluetooth. A almost $30,000 major-finish cost yields bigger touchscreen infotainment, B&O seem, and a number of additional trim pieces, but almost any mid-size compact sedan or crossover would be a superior all-about motor vehicle at the cost.
Fuel economic system isn’t a individual energy either, maxing out at 28 mpg blended.
