The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.2
5.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Ford EcoSport offers up cabin space and a low base price, but other Ford SUVs present a better value. The 2018 Jeep Renegade mounts a spirited defense of its brand bona fides, but delivers a less convincing impression of a great economy car.
