Vehicle Overview

As one of the newer subcompact crossover SUVs in the market, the Ford EcoSport has garnered some attention because of its high level of fuel efficiency, spaciousness for its size, and user-friendly infotainment system. Now in its third model year, the EcoSport is available in S, SE, Titanium, and SES trims.

Performance

If you go with the S, SE, or Titanium, the Ford EcoSport comes with a turbocharged 1.0-liter inline 3-cylinder (I3) engine. Hitched to a 6-speed automatic transmission, this I3 engine produces 123 horsepower and 125 lb-ft of torque. The top-level SES gets a larger and more powerful 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine, which produces 166 horsepower and 149 lb-ft of torque and is also pinned to a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

With the standard front-wheel drivetrain accompanying the 1.0-liter I3, the EcoSport peaks at 27 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. However, if you want to enjoy maximum towing ability (at 2,000 lbs.) and optimized ability to conquer surfaces made slippery by rain, snow, or ice, go with the optional all-wheel drive. Notably, all-wheel drive is standard on the SES trim.

Interior

The Ford EcoSport is designed as a two-row vehicle to seat up to five people. Front seating includes a 4-way manually adjustable driver's seat, and the rear seatback has a 60/40 split-folding design to expand the standard cargo space of 20.9 cubic feet to a max of 50 cubic feet. That's substantially more than what most other subcompact crossovers offer.

If you go with the Titanium or SES model, Ford provides steering-wheel heating. Since the Titanium is the luxury-oriented trim, it has standard perforated leather seat trim, front-seat heating, and a 6-way power adjustable driver's seat. As the sport-oriented trim, the SES exclusively has its seats dressed in ActiveX, a high-end synthetic material designed for high-level rigor due to its durability and stain resistance.

Comfort and Convenience

The Ford EcoSport's standard comfort and convenience features include remote keyless entry, a Wi-Fi hotspot (new for this model year), a six-speaker stereo system with AM/FM radio, MP3 playback compatibility, two USB ports, and SYNC infotainment integration with a 4.2-inch display. The SE trim level provides you with a power moonroof, electronic automatic climate control, a trial subscription to SiriusXM Radio, a smart key system with push-button engine start, and an upgrade to SYNC 3 infotainment integration with an 8-inch touchscreen.

Both the Titanium and SES stand apart from the S and SE with the inclusion of auto-dimming ability on the rearview mirror, additional trial subscriptions to SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link, and 8-inch touchscreen navigation with voice-activated technology and 3D mapping. On the SES, Ford upgrades the sound system with an additional speaker to increase the total of speakers to seven. And on the Titanium, Ford installs the exclusive 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.

Safety

For restraint and cushioning, the Ford EcoSport has a driver's knee airbags, two frontal impact airbags, two side impact airbags, and two side curtain airbags. Driver-assistance tech is bundled in the Ford Co-Pilot360 suite, which includes a rearview camera, auto high-beam technology, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, a blind spot information system, and lane keeping assist. Also standard are an anti-lock braking system, electronic stability control, traction control, hill start assist, brake assist, an SOS post-crash alert system, daytime running lights (DRLs), and a theft-deterrent system.

Get any trim but the base-level S, and Ford adds rear parking sensors to enhance the rearview camera's functionality, as well as replaces the halogen light bulbs on the DRLs with LEDs for brighter and longer-lasting illumination. Exclusive to the Titanium is a perimeter alarm to enhance the theft-deterrent system.
