2022 Ford Ecosport vs. Its Competition

2022 Ford Ecosport
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Shoppers interested in the Ecosport should take a long look at the Escape across the showroom first.

It’s more spacious, more efficient, and better equipped for not much more money.

The newer Chevy Trailblazer is a half-step ahead of the Ecosport in every way.

The Hyundai Venue oozes style, but it’s not available with all-wheel drive.

The Honda HR-V is a small-car staple with good room and a low price.

The Jeep Renegade steers hard in the other direction—it’s forte is off-roading—but it gets pricey in top trims.
