S Front-wheel Drive Sport Utility
2019 Ford EcoSport

2019 EcoSport Photos
The Ford EcoSport is the smallest of six crossover SUVs sold with the blue oval badge. Assembled in India, it ran millions of miles around the world for many years before it came to the U.S.

The EcoSport comes with either front-wheel drive and a 1.6-liter turbocharged 3-cylinder engine making 123 horsepower, or all-wheel drive and an inline-4 making 166 hp. Both draw power through a 6-speed automatic. Thanks to a hefty curb weight of more than 3,000 pounds and more than 3,300 pounds, respectively, neither engine delivers very strong acceleration. The EcoSport rides fairly well, especially in the city, but its steering is somewhat light.

It has a 99.2-inch wheelbase and an overall length of 161.3 inches. That's smaller than the Honda HR-V. It manages to be roomy enough inside, especially in the rear. Cargo space is 20.9 cubic feet.

Fuel mileage with the front-wheel-drive turbo-3 is 27 mpg city, 29 highway, 28 combined. The heavier all-wheel-drive model with the normally-aspirated four-cylinder engine gets 23/29/25 mpg, which isn't much better than a good turbo-4 offered by many other manufacturers, including the Ford Escape, its next-size-up crossover.

The EcoSport earned a four-star overall crash rating from the NHTSA, with five stars for side impact protection, four stars for rollover resistance with all-wheel drive, and three stars for the same test (calculated) with front-wheel drive. The IIHS hasn't tested the EcoSport. The EcoSport offers blind-spot monitors, but not adaptive cruise control or forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking. .
