Expert Rating

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2018 Ford EcoSport OVERVIEW

The compact crossover segment continues to grow at an alarming rate and Ford wants to keep things fresh with the 2018 EcoSport. The compact vehicle enters the segment with peppy powertrains, the latest tech features, and a decent amount of cargo space. The vehicle also has a sharp design and a high-up seating position, both of which are important to today’s consumers.

What's New for 2018

The Ford EcoSport is an all-new model for 2018.

2018 Ford EcoSport

Choosing Your Ford EcoSport

Built off Ford's compact B-segment platform, the 2018 EcoSport utilizes two small powertrains. The standard engine is a 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder EcoBoost unit. A naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is also offered for an additional $1,500. Both pair to a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive is standard. The upgrade to the 2.0-liter engine includes intelligent four-wheel drive.

Ford hasn't released official power figures for the engines yet, but the EPA has released fuel-economy figures for the crossover. The 1.0-liter engine is rated to get 27 miles per gallon city and 29 mpg highway. The 2.0-liter powertrain isn't as fuel efficient, with a rating of 23 mpg city and 29 mpg highway.

Despite being Ford's smallest SUV, the EcoSport emphasizes cargo capacity. The vehicle has 60/40 fold-flat rear seat backs, allowing for larger items to fit into the back while retaining some of the seats. The EcoSport also has a standard Cargo Management System that features an adjustable load floor and shelf, giving owners a customizable solution to stowing cargo.

The EcoSport is available in four different trims:


The EcoSport S starts at $20,990 (all prices include the $995 destination charge). Exterior features on the trim include black door handles, black mirror caps, a rear hatch swing door, and quad-beam reflector headlights. On the inside, the EcoSport features single-zone manual air conditioning, power windows, two USB ports, a rearview camera, a six-speaker audio system, and cloth-trimmed bucket seats.

Available extras on the S trim include the Cargo Management Package ($110) that adds a cargo net and a cargo organizer. Front and rear mud flaps are an extra $200, while a keyless pad entry system costs $110. Adding remote start to the vehicle costs $495, and a spare tire carrier that’s mounted on the swing gate is an additional $185.


The SE trim carries a starting price tag of $23,900 and brings some creature comforts over the base trim. The outside of the SE gets body-color exterior mirrors with signal indicators, fog lights, black roof rails, a rear window wiper, and an acoustic laminated windshield as standard equipment. Interior standard features include automatic temperature control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a power moonroof, intelligent access with push-button start, a 6.5-inch touchscreen with Sync 3, and front heated bucket seats.

There are three available packages on the SE trim in addition to the Cargo Management Package ($110). The SE Convenience Package ($1,795) adds blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, a 110V/150W AC power outlet, ambient lighting, a seven-speaker audio system, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, a voice-activated navigation system, and Sync Connect. The Cold Weather Package ($395) includes front and rear floor liners, heated exterior mirrors, a heated steering wheel, and windshield wiper de-icer. Lastly, the Interior Protection Package ($195) brings a cargo mat and front and rear floor liners to the crossover. The other optional features are similar to the ones found on the S trim.


The Titanium trim, which starts at $26,735, brings some teach features to the crossover. Standard equipment includes: heated power exterior mirros, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, silver-painted roof rack side rails, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, ambient lighting, Sync Connect, a B&O Play premium nine-speaker audio system by Harman, a voice-activated navigation system, a WiFi hotspot, leather-trimmed and heated bucket seats, and an 8.0-inch color LCD touchscreen. The Titanium trim has the same available packages and options as lower trims.


The range-topping EcoSport SES starts at $27,735 and comes standard with the 2.0-liter engine, a sport-tuned suspension, 17-inch aluminum wheels, black roof rails, LED signature lighting, and fog lights. The interior shares a lot of the same features as the Titanium trim. Available packages for the SES trim mimic the ones found on lower trims.

CarsDirect Tip

As a compact crossover, the entry-level EcoSport trim is economically equipped. Moving up to the SE trim brings some much-needed creature comforts to the vehicle. The SE Convenience Package is a worthy upgrade, while consumers living in colder climates should also opt for the Cold Weather Package.
