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 Mini Countryman has a new plug-in hybrid system but the mission is the same: Big Mini crossover with a bigger audience. The 2018 Nissan Kicks doesn’t thrill, but its pert styling and good value make it worth a look.
