2019 Ford EcoSport review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Ford EcoSport?

Launched last year, the EcoSport is the smallest SUV in Ford's lineup. It seats five and offers a choice of two engines: a 123-horsepower, turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder in front-wheel-drive versions and a 166-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder in four-wheel-drive models. Both engines team with a six-speed automatic transmission. Competitors include the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3 and Chevrolet Trax.

What’s New on the 2019 Ford EcoSport?

A new Black Appearance Package for the SES trim level adds a black roof and hood decal on white, silver and blue EcoSports.

What Features in the 2019 Ford EcoSport Are Most Important?

Available convenience features include automatic climate control, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, the Sync 3 multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, remote start, a Bang & Olufsen premium stereo and 4G LTE connectivity with a Wi-Fi hot spot. Blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert is also available.

Should I Buy the 2019 Ford EcoSport?

EcoSport highlights include its tall seating position, simple controls and steering feel, but it also has some significant negative characteristics. These include ride quality on bumpy roads, unrefined powertrains that don't get great gas mileage and a tight backseat. The subcompact SUV class has added numerous entrants recently, so it's worth your while to check out the competition to find the one that's right for you.

So far so good!

I have owned several CRV's and previously Ford Focus', so I was intrigued by this car. I got a good COVID deal on mine last year. I have put 21k miles on it this year. The gas mileage is great especially under 62 mph. I like the upright higher seat position as I'm short. It's very comfortable, reliable and cute. I would buy this again!


Best purchase I've ever made. I love my Eco Spor.

This vehicle is the best purchase I've made. Has everything I wanted and more for the value. Excellent ride, comfortable and easy to navigate the features.


Well pleased with the car's performance

I am well pleased with the performance of the auto, thus far. The keyless starter takes some getting used to, and I was surprised to not see a CD player on the dash.... however, the music selection options make up for it.
