TCC’s Bottom Line
If you need a spacious new vehicle for the tiniest of parking spaces (and budgets), the Trax is an acceptable but mediocre contender. The 2021 Ford Ecosport small crossover forsakes its name and doesn’t offer much by way of driving excitement or efficiency. The 2021 Hyundai Kona wears like statement jewelry, and drives like a bargain.
