The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

5.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Ford EcoSport wants for safety and styling that match even the lowered standards set by its price. The 2019 Mazda CX-3 fails to launch in the crossover-SUV space race. The 2019 Nissan Kicks’ expressive styling masks its economy-car bones.
