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.

      I just bought a new 2019 Ecosport about a month and a half ago, but I gotta say, this review is unfairly and overly negative. I drive 4,000 miles a month for work and I’m 6’4” @ 260 lbs (yeah, I’m a pretty big dude) and the seat comfort is totally fine and very much adjustable, even for my SE model (and YES, there is a lumbar adjustment, KBB. Unfortunate that they missed that.). Plus, with careful driving, I get well over 33
      mpg combined. The rear swing gate isn’t a problem at all! They barely show it before they hastily cut away, but the rear swing gate has a mid-way hydraulic stop which still gives you full access to the back of the car. With all the cities and towns that I travel in and around, I’ve yet to come across any issue with opening it. As a matter of fact, the small size of the car enables me to fully open the swing gate almost every time! And, I LOVE the side-opening swing gate, especially as a tall guy!

      One thing I will say — the only drawback I have so far is the power. I have the inline 3 cylinder turbo, and while it’s feisty and I can still pass with mostly relative ease, if I really want to get on the gas for an emergency, the power’s just not there. I believe it’s mostly due to throttle response and gearing; both seem haphazard and somewhat lazy. But hey, dat TOW CAPACITY doe!

      And come ON, for 20 grand brand NEW?? Gotta say, I LOVE this thing!

      This is a Brazilian baby. The Ford EcoSport was invented in here back in 2003 and it was responsible of opening a segment on our market of small SUVs and crossovers. Since then, the EcoSport became a very popular and reliable vehicle on the Brazilian market.
      It's curious that Ford of USA chose the Indian assembly line to build the vehicle for them, since they have an fully loaded assembly line right here, that serves the entire latin american market as well.
      And no, Mexico has no involvement with the EcoSport whatsoever

      Actually, the US spec EcoSport is assembled in India. Mexico never had any involvement on that car, nor Brazil on the US spec model.

      Wow, why? That should be cheaper since the ones sold in Asia are made in Thailand, which is close to Cambodia.

      We've only had our new 2019 EcoSport SE for 2 weeks, but we love it. I'm a very big guy with several health issues, & needed something I could get in & out of easily. Love all the bells & whistles this car has.

      Couldn’t finish the video because she pronounces it “echo”sport.. not Eco, like economical, because that’s what it stands for 😂

      No, it's not. Take 30 seconds to look this up, it's a constant point of humor in automotive coverage of the car, Ford has clarified multiple times it is pronounced "echo".

      I sat In one in a showroom and was impressed but the way in which the back door opens is just plain stupid. Some of Ford designers should be fired for coming up with this design and the head honchos who allowed this concept to go into production should also be fired

      This should be priced much lower. Like around 18k new. Looks like a little ugly and cheap. I think I'd rather have the Chevy Trax.

      Well you thought right. Idk why all these fools keep pronouncing it “Echo” when it should be “eco” that’s why they called it that, “economy” “ecosystem”

      I've seen a bunch of these on the road in Massachusetts. They look like cute baby Escapes. Good room for a small suv and the 2.0 has good power. Looks like the Ecosport has the most ground clearance in it's class to go a little off roading too.

      I’m not even a ford guy and I like this car, and looks bette run person. I like the more subdued styling unlike a lot of small crossovers these days. I think it’s gonna sell quite well.

      Test drove one of these today. Fell in love with it. Looking to trade my 2016 Toyota Corolla on one! That Corolla is my 2nd Toyota ever and it's just as much of a money pit as the first one I had (2005 Camry). It's so cheap and the suspension makes all kinds of noises that 4 different Toyota dealerships can't replicate. So ready to dump it for the Ecosport.
