2020 Ford EcoSport Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2020 Ford EcoSport?

The 2020 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 work with a six-speed automatic transmission. Competitors include the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3 and Chevrolet Trax. 

What’s New on the 2020 Ford EcoSport?

A 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot with a three-month/three-gigabyte data trial is now standard, and the FordPass smartphone app enables remote vehicle locking, starting and locating. The SE trim level gains an 8-inch touchscreen multimedia system, a cargo management system and a map pocket on the back of the front passenger seat.  

What Features in the 2020 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 and a Bang & Olufsen premium stereo. Blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert is also available.

Should I Buy the 2020 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.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
