The Car Connection's Take

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 Mazda CX-3 is an attractive small crossover pick thanks to its good looks. We’d ask for more room, but fear that would spoil the CX-3’s low price. The 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport is comfortable as a small car with a tall ride height and affordable base models. Don’t venture too far from there.
