Expert Rating

Not Available

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.

2021 Ford EcoSport Overview

Neil Cumins
Automotive Editor - February 19, 2021

What's New

Mechanically unchanged for 2021, Ford’s EcoSport SUV receives new aluminum wheels and paint colors. A six-way power driver’s seat is standard on SES trims, while SE models and above receive cargo covers and package trays. For the first time, Titanium trim comes with perforated seating materials.

Choosing your Ford EcoSport

The 2021 EcoSport range includes two very different engines, each mated to a different drive system. Prices start at $21,240 (all prices include destination) for an S trim with the EcoBoost engine, with a $1,595 price jump to the larger two-liter gas engine and all-wheel drive.

The SE trim is available from $24,695, with a $1,500 jump to the bigger engine, and Titanium starts at $27,510 with a $1,450 uplift. SES models are only available with the larger engine, for $28,820, making them slightly cheaper than a similarly configured Titanium model.

Engine Choices

One of the EcoSport’s two available gas engines is twice the size of the other. The differences between them are less dramatic, since the 1.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost unit generates 123 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque, compared to the 166 hp and 149 lb-ft of the normally aspirated 2.0-liter engine.

The EcoBoost supplies power to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission, while the larger 2.0 has intelligent four-wheel drive as standard. The EcoSport returns an EPA-estimated 27 miles per gallon city, 29 mpg highway, and 28 combined, while the other engine’s figures are 23/29/25 respectively.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (City/Highway/Combined)
1.0 EcoBoost123 hp125 lb-ft27/29/28 MPG
2.0L 4-Cylinder166 hp149 lb-ft23/29/25 MPG

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

Cargo capacity for the five-seater EcoSport stands at 20.9 cu ft with the rear seats in place, and exactly 50 cu ft once they’re dropped.

Safety Features

Despite a relatively affordable sticker price, every EcoSport is furnished with safety aids including automatic lights, cruise control, and hill start assistance. The cabin features eight airbags and a post-crash alert system, while roll stability control attempts to minimize the likelihood of a crash.

SE models get a reverse sensing system as standard, whereas SES and Titanium receive blind-spot monitoring and cross-traffic alerts with rain-sensing wipers. Unlike its competitors, you won't find automatic emergency braking (AEB) or more advanced features at any price point.

Connectivity

Base S models are a long way behind the times, lacking the eight-inch capacitive touchscreen found in SE models and above. They also lack smartphone compatibility, with a modest 4.2-inch LCD screen and voice control powering a six-speaker stereo and smart-charging USB ports.

It is possible to connect up to ten devices to a 4G WiFi hotspot in every EcoSport, remotely unlocking and starting the vehicle and locating it in car parks. SE trim and above gains satellite radio, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, but you’ll need SES or Titanium to enjoy navigation and a seven-speaker sound system.


S – From $21,240

It might seem unfair to criticize such an affordable SUV for being sparsely-equipped, but S-trim EcoSports are not luxurious.

FordPass Connect technology includes WiFi hotspot and remote engine control, remote central locking and smart-charging USB ports. There’s climate control and cruise control, power front and rear windows, and a six-speaker stereo.

It’s not possible to upgrade EcoSport models with options packs.


SE – From $24,695

As the first trim on nodding terms with modern specifications, SE models receive an 8.0-inch touchscreen powering smartphone connectivity and a reverse sensing system. Electronic climate control is augmented with heated front bucket seats, while second-row passengers gain privacy glass.

There’s keyless entry and push-button start, a power moonroof with sunshade, configurable LED daytime running lamps, and a de-icer function for the windshield wipers.


SES– from $28,820

Only available with a two-liter engine and all-wheel drive, SES models also gain larger 17-inch aluminum wheels and sport-tuned suspension alongside blind spot and cross-traffic alerts. The stereo receives an extra speaker and navigation comes as standard, while the side mirrors are powered and heated.

The leather-wrapped steering wheel is also heated, and the driver’s seat gains six-way power, with ambient cabin lighting and rain-sensing front wipers.


Titanium – from $27,510

Available with a choice of engines, chrome moldings and strips distinguish Titanium models alongside unique machined aluminum wheels. Other differences from SES models include the inclusion of a center floor console and a ten-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system with subwoofer, plus perforated seat fabrics.

CarsDirect Tip

With S trim too plain and higher models struggling to justify their extra expense, SE represents the sweet spot in the EcoSport range. It does the best job of balancing affordability with the type of specifications SUV buyers expect nowadays.
