Fun to drive
Jeremy, 2/20/2018
I’ve only had the EcoSport SES for 3 days it also just came out last week , I love this crossover it is fun to drive it’s everything you would want in a small suv . I’m no car expert but I find the pickup to be good it’s very quick and handles the road well , lots of extra features. I also have a 2017 Escape I find them very similar clearly the Escape is roomier but not as fun to drive.
My 2018 Ford EcoSport Review in "S" Trim
Phil1336, 4/7/2018
After almost 3 months of Ownership an 1500 miles driven, so dar I am very pleased with the Vehicle. I must admit, I am partial to Ford Vehicles over many years an traded in my 2013 Ford C-Max SE Hybrid for this EcoSport. It looks very much like a baby Escape! Fit an Finish is great an concerns about quality control for a car built in India is unfounded. The "Value" is in the (S) Trim. Unless you need more Technology with SYNC 3 an a Power Sunroof, $21,000 included Delivery is the MSRP. This is (NOT) a 27K or 28K Vehicle no matter how many Bells an Whistles you add to it. Performance, braking, steering, an driving in general is great. Interior Instrument Layout, Seating an general quality of Materials are above average for this segment. Leg room an height is fine in Front but if you adjust the front seats to the Max back, rear leg room is marginal. Two objections. 1st, below average Fuel Economy for a 3 cyl Engine that is but 1 Ltr in size. Secondly, they removed the CD Disk Player on their Audio Systems in all Trim Levels altogether. Not everyone whats to throw away their entire collection of CD`s an "Stream" their music. Not including at least the Sirius Satelite module in the Base S Trim is annoying as an entertainment backup. An 11K Hyundai Accent or Kia Rio includes the Sirius/XM Software. Comparing the 2018 Ford EcoSport with my other Vehicle, a 2017 Honda HR-V LX, I prefer the EcoSport. Looks are subjective but I like the high ground clearance of the EcoSport an the left hinged Rear Hatch Door despite taking a bit to get used to works fine as well.

More about the 2018 Ford EcoSport

The 2018 Ford EcoSport is the most affordable SUV in Ford's lineup. Like other Fords, the base model is equipped with a lot of features at a reasonable price, with higher trims adding more comfort, convenience and luxury features. Multiple option packages are available on all but the base model.

The 2018 Ford EcoSport is offered in S, SE, SES and Titanium trim levels. A fuel-sipping turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive are standard on all models except the SES; that sport-themed variant is equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and all-wheel drive. If you just want the stronger engine without the sport upgrades, good news: This powertrain is optional on the other models, too.

The base S model is modestly equipped. Highlights include 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, a rearview camera, height-adjustable front seats and a cargo cover. The SE is a bit more expensive, but we think buyers will appreciate its extra amenities, which include foglights, rear parking sensors, a sunroof, keyless entry and ignition, heated front seats, upgraded cloth upholstery, a touchscreen, satellite radio, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.

The next two trim levels cost about the same but are vastly different. The previously mentioned SES adds the upgraded engine, a sport-tuned suspension and paddle shifters. You could also go with the luxurious Titanium, which counts leather upholstery and a premium audio system among its many additions.

The 2018 Ford EcoSport is competitively priced, with a price range that's commensurate with other subcompact crossovers. Unfortunately, its fuel economy scores aren't as good as those of top-tier rivals, and there aren't any advanced safety features aside from blind-spot monitoring. We also question how well the base turbocharged three-cylinder engine powers the car, especially if you're traveling with friends. The four-cylinder might be suitable for small families or social butterflies. If you decide the 2018 Ford EcoSport is your ideal small crossover, be sure to check Edmunds pricing and inventory tools to find the perfect model for you.
