2019 Ford Ecosport vs. Its Competition

2019 Ford Ecosport
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Reasonable alternatives to the Ford EcoSport exist, from nearly every carmaker.

Honda's HR-V is the segment's space-leader thanks to its efficient interior—but it also happens to drive quite well.

The Mazda CX-3 delivers some enthusiast-oriented passion to the segment and remains the driver's choice.

The Chevrolet Trax has a reasonable price tag to go with its compact footprint.

Jeep and Fiat offer different takes on what's actually the same vehicle underneath; the 500X brims with character, while the Renegade is a formidable off-roader with chunky styling.
