The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.3
5.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Fiat 500X comes with more built-in personality than most other small SUVs, though it’s an urban warrior rather than an off-roader. The 2018 Ford EcoSport offers up cabin space and a low base price, but other Ford SUVs present a better value.
