The 2021 Ford EcoSport doesn't compare favorably with most vehicles in the subcompact SUV class. It suffers from an underpowered base engine, a harsh ride, and limited advanced safety features, which is why it ranks near the back of the segment.
The Ford EcoSport offers an excellent ride quality, and along with that, the plush nature comes as icing on the cake. This subcompact SUV never fails to deliver luxury. The plush interior which is accompanied by an extremely comfortable ride quality makes it a must-buy even in today's competitive market.
The big tank of the EcoSport makes it a car to be taken on long drives. Brakes lack bite under hard braking. A bit slow at times, but the system has a myriad features, and it sounds really good. India's first compact SUV lives up to its billing as our Car of the Year.
The fact that the EcoSport comes with ample safety features that can even compete with modern day compact SUVs make this SUV an enticing option to consider. The Ford EcoSport is a car that delivers value in every department, and if you come across a used EcoSport you like, it will be worth owning one.
What's more, the Ecosport is based on the Ford Fiesta, and that's a pretty solid foundation to build upon, plus its choice of two turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol engines, with 123bhp and 138bhp, compares well with the equivalents offered by the likes of the Kia Stonic and Hyundai Kona.
