Overview

What's New

The 2020 Ford EcoSport carries on with few changes other than a minor shuffling of features between packages. Notably, FordPass Connect, which brings remote services like the ability to unlock and start the vehicle with a smartphone app, is now standard.

The EcoSport remains a small crossover that mainly appeals to those who think the price is right and can deal with the compact dimensions. Otherwise, a larger crossover that's more powerful and efficient may be more suitable.

Choosing Your Ford EcoSport

The Ford EcoSport is available in four trims: S, SE, Titanium, and SES. Pricing starts at $21,580 including destination for the S and reaches $28,475 for the SES.

Engine Choices

The Ford EcoSport is offered with two engines. A 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine is standard, while a 2.0-liter four-cylinder is available on the first three trims and standard on the SES.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
1.0L 3-Cylinder123 hp125 lb-ft28 mpg
2.0L 4-Cylinder166 hp149 lb-ft25 mpg

The bigger engine requires upgrading to four-wheel drive and costs $1,450 to $1,595, depending on the trim. The 1.0-liter three-cylinder is available only with front-wheel drive. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The EcoSport offers seating for five passengers, but good luck to those trying to fit three adults in comfort in the back. Cargo capacity checks in at 20.9 cubic feet behind the second row, or 50 cubes with it folded. The deep cargo area floor can be raised if a flatter loading floor is preferred.

Safety Features

The EcoSport, like many Ford models, comes standard with Ford Co-Pilot360. The suite of active safety features includes automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane keeping assist, pedestrian detection, and automatic high beams.

The NHTSA has given the EcoSport a four-star overall safety rating.

Connectivity

The base S model only gets a 4.2-inch LCD screen with a simplified version of the Sync infotainment system, but it does come with two USB ports. Step up to the SE to get an 8-inch touchscreen with Sync 3 infotainment, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and satellite radio.

Ford EcoSport

S - From $21,580

The basic S trim is quite basic, as highlighted by the molded-in-plastic black exterior trim pieces and four-way manual driver seat. It does get automatic headlights, 16-inch alloy wheels, and a PTC heater that adds instant heat.

Remote start is a $495 option.

SE - From $24,545

The SE is distinguished with body-colored exterior trim pieces, fog lights, LED daytime running lights, and a moonroof. The inside gains the upgraded infotainment system, proximity entry, push button start, automatic climate control, and a leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel.

The optional SE Convenience Package ($1,495) includes navigation, a seven-speaker audio system, ambient lighting, and an AC power outlet.

Titanium - From $27,360

The interior receives the attention of the Titanium trim. Perforated leather seating, a six-way power driver's seat, a nine-speaker Bang and Olufsen audio system, navigation, and a heated steering wheel highlight the updates. Chrome exterior trim, silver roof rails, and unique 17-inch wheels add an upscale look.

SES - From $28,475

The SES takes on a sporty theme with darkened headlight housings, fog light bezels, grille, and mirror caps. Unique exterior trim and 17-inch wheels also work to set the tone. The sport-tuned suspension and standard all-wheel drive work the theme from behind the scenes. The seats change to stain-resistant leatherette.

The SES Black Appearance Package is $395 and adds a black painted roof, black rear spoiler, and a black hood decal.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2020 Ford EcoSport SE with the Convenience Package brings added safety features and the latest Ford infotainment system. The higher trims cost much more and start to bring comparisons to larger vehicles.

New but old. The current-generation Ford EcoSport may be new to the U.S. market, as it arrived on our shores for the 2018 model year, but it’s been available in the emerging markets since 2012. Sure, Ford massaged its looks a little before shipping it to the States, but it still lags in style and class.

Despite its dated looks and materials, the 2020 Ford EcoSport competes in a class that focuses more on value, and there's plenty to be had in this subcompact crossover. This is especially true in its higher trim levels.

City-friendly size with room where you need it. The EcoSport has one thing in mind: tight spaces. This subcompact crossover measures just 161.3 inches long and 71.9 inches wide, giving it a city-friendly footprint. No matter how much traffic you run into, the EcoSport can zip in and out of it with ease.

This tiny footprint does, however, give it odd proportions that include a stubby nose, a high roofline, and tiny rear doors. Also, despite being just three model years old, the EcoSport’s design is surprisingly dated.

Inside, this tiny crossover surprises with 37.5 inches of rear head room and 36.7 inches of rear leg room. Sure, this is nothing compared to larger models, but it's well above average for the subcompact crossover class. For reference the Hyundai Kona has just 34.6 inches of rear leg room, the Jeep Renegade has 35.1 inches, and the Mazda CX-3 has 35.

If you want a more family-friendly crossover, you’ll have to move to the Honda HR-V, which offers a whopping 39.3 inches of leg room and 38.3 inches of rear head room.


Ford EcoSport

Hefty curb weight kills performance. Under its hood, the Ford EcoSport comes standard with a 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine that delivers 123 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque. Optionally, buyers can move into a more satisfying sounding – at least on paper – 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 166 hp and 149 lb-ft of torque.

The 2.0-liter engine rings in slightly above average for its class, with the HR-V topping out at 141 hp, the Kona starting at 147 hp, and the CX-3 topping out at 148 hp. The only competitor that significantly outmuscles the EcoSport is the Renegade with 177 to 180 hp.

Despite having the on-paper power to deliver decent performance, the EcoSport with the 1.0-liter engine weighs upward of 3,000 pounds. Think more power will help? Think again. The 2.0-liter engine adds an extra 300 pounds of heft, essentially offsetting its power gains.

Great optional audio, but a chintzy interior. Outside of luxury brands, subcompact crossovers aren’t known for great features, but the Ford EcoSport bucks this trend with its optional audio system. This crisp-sounding nine-speaker Bang and Olufsen system boasts a subwoofer and plenty of range at all volume levels.

Also, the optional SYNC 3 infotainment system leaves nothing to be desired with its clear 8-inch touchscreen, easy-to-use interface, and quick response times. This system also includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to make your life a little easier.

Despite its sharp audio and infotainment system, the Ford EcoSport’s interior has a hard time hiding its cheap roots. It has plenty of class-killing plastic strewn throughout, even on critical touchpoints. Moving into higher trims offers some relief in this area, but there's still plenty of cheapness.

Final thoughts. The 2020 Ford EcoSport may not have the style of some of its competitors, but it makes up for it with an above-average rear-seat room without a huge compromise in cargo room.

Also, its optional Bang and Olufsen audio system and 8-inch SYNC 3 infotainment system give you the crystal-clear audio and in-car tech younger buyers crave without stepping into a premium brand.

Buyers who need more interior room will find out that’s a hard task in this class, but the HR-V is an excellent option with 39.3 inches of rear leg room and up to 58.8 cubic feet of cargo room.

Seeking a more upscale look without a premium price? The CX-3 offers a stunning cabin and a sharp exterior design. Those looking for a crossover that can handle off-roading can look to the Renegade and its surprisingly capable Trailhawk trim.
