2020 Ford Ecosport vs. Its Competition

2020 Ford Ecosport
Brian León Brian León Contributing Writer

The Chevrolet Trax competes with the Ecosport and outpaces it in nearly every way, but that’s not saying much: it’s dull and sluggish, but has a more modern design and technology.

Honda’s HR-V is pleasant enough to drive and represents better value than the Ford.

The Hyundai Kona is the best of this bunch, with distinctive styling, great features, and standout value, not to mention an electric version.

Jeep’s Renegade wins the personality and off-road ability battle with its Trailhawk model.

Mazda’s CX-3 is the sharpest to look at and great to drive but has a small back seat and puny cargo space.

Quick Specs
The 2020 Ford Ecosport is not particularly good value, not particularly efficient, and not particularly good.
The 2020 Chevy Trax crossover has a low price for a tall ride height–and not much else.
The 2020 Honda HR-V oozes with practicality, though gas mileage and safety equipment have room to improve.
The 2020 Hyundai Kona is an eyeful, but has nearly everything crossover buyers want in a city-friendly package.
The 2020 Jeep Renegade is a compact crossover SUV that’s full of character and off-road prowess, but it makes many important compromises.
The 2020 Mazda CX-3 is stylish but impractical for a crossover SUV.
