The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2020 Ford Ecosport is not particularly good value, not particularly efficient, and not particularly good. The 2020 Mazda CX-30 is a right-sized small crossover with good looks that’s the most fun to drive among its competitors. The 2020 Subaru Crosstrek puts safety first, with capability a close second.
