With the EcoSport, Ford enters the already over-populated sub-compact SUV space. Instead of a brand new design, the blue oval has imported the second-generation baby-ute which first came off the production line in 2013. It's wildly popular in Brazil and India, but how will the 2019 EcoSport (pronounced Echo-Sport) hold up against some stiff competition in the U.S. market? Kelley Blue Book's Lyn Woodward might help you find out.

      High price for what it is with low resale value. In two years after you buy it, you'll be begging people to give you half of what you paid. In three years even worst. Same stupid choice as the Escape. Just stay away from the brand "Ford".

      I've never seen someone complain about the console and door elbow rest not being at the exact same height. Who cares? You're driving - not at the movies. I also beg to differ about the seat comfort. I have a 2019 EcoSport, and one of the first things that I noticed about it was the seat comfort. However, I am very small framed. Taller or wider people may struggle in this car.

      I really like my ecosport.not as fast as a kona,but? Its got alot more clearance,and it can tow a couple thousand pounds too.and its not a rocket but its not painfully slow like an hrv.one thing about fords too is that in 25 years itll still be intact,no rust holes lime in a honda or a hyundai.its unstoppable in the snow too.

      It's a shame they didn't keep the spare tire on the back of the EcoSport like the one it has in it's home market. That's the reason for the swing-out tailgate. A real shame. I miss the era of SUVs with spare tires on the back...I know, I'm old. And now everything looks the same.

      The Hyundai and the Toyota sub compacts look like shit so at least the ecosport looks nice. Not that one though that orange color and trim level also look like garbage but less fancy ecosports look nicer usually

      I recently bought a new 2019 FWD Ecosport Titanium. I choose it because of some options over other vehicles.
      First, I absolutely despise black interior. Hyundai Kona and Honda HRV , Subaru Crosstrek are usually black interiors. Yes, you can get grey in any of those. No beige. Choose the HRV and you are limited to just 3 exterior colors if you go with grey. Kona, has grey seats, but dash and doors are still almost all black. Same with Crosstrek. Crosstrek say grey interior. That's BS in my opinion, to me it's black with a grey stripe.
      I choose the Ecosport in medium light stone interior, which is being.
      Loaded up the Titanium trim brings some good options. Yes it lacks some modern safety features. The Titanium trim brings better softer suspension compared to SES trim. Titanium adds the 700watt B&O sound system that rocks. Adds 8.5" touch screen. Adds NAV with the SYNC 3. Adds projector headlights. Nothing fancy, just halogen bulbs but an improvement with projector lenses.
      I have the 1.0 Ecosport. This thing is a gem despite perhaps being low on power. It isn't bad and handles all the roads and hills I drive . I feel bad for those you get the 4WD. You get take hefty hit In fuel mileage. The 1.0 is way superior in noise , vibration, and harshness. The 1.0 is definitely a superior product to the 2.0 offering despite being the weaker engine.
      Also if you read the reviews, the 2.0 isn't really much quicker at all. The 4WD and 2.0L adds about 300lbs of weight over the FWD. Neatly canceling out those horsepower gains.
      Now to the fuel economy. I live in Pennsylvania and live in the mountains, also I drive way above average miles per year. I specifically went of my way to obtain a FWD version. Almost everything is 4WD where I live. I had to 90mi to Pittsburgh suburb dealership just to find and test drive a FWD equipped Ecosport.
      I live less than mile from a ski resort and 2nd highest mountain in the state. I'm up and down hills and mountains and drive on roads that's aren't conducive to producing good fuel economy on vehicles. I'm currently at 2500mi on my vehicle. My first tank of gas was my worst and averaged over 31MPG for the tank.
      My last fill-up I drove 346.7mi and squeezed in 10.44 gal of fuel giving me an average of 33.2 MPG for the tank. All of my fillups have yeided about 33 34MPG average. The dash info yields similar results. I reset my trip odometer at fill up and check miles when I filled up.
      I don't know how EPA calculates MPG, the numbers seem low for this vehicle. I really don't know how you could drive this vehicle and only muster 27MPG.
      Also, I drive high mileage. I prefer any vehicle in FWD over a 4WD or AWD counterpart. The FWD will deliver better fuel economy. I live near a ski resort and I have never owned a 4WD vehicle yet. I drive high mileage and I will winterize my vehicle and switch to a dedicated winter tire when the season comes. A quality set of winter tires is superior to any All season tire. I've past many 4WD and AWD that couldn't go in snow. Braking and handling is superior with a good set of winter tires. Never will I pay the extra money for a 4WD vehicle and take the hot on fuel economy.
      It is normal with my occupation to drive upwards of 40,000mi/yr.

      It may seem weak but it really isn’t once you’re actually in one. No race car, but does just fine for the driving that most people would do!

      All modern car seats are way too stiff and uncomfortable as hell to me, with the exception being the Nissan Armada. Besides that, give me the seats in a 1985 Cadillac Sedan Deville anytime over the new stuff they offer.
