The 2018 Ford EcoSport aims to offer SUV versatility in a pint-sized package. However, the EcoSport's powertrain and small size may have a hard time competing against more established subcompact SUVs.

Meanwhile Chevy’s version has a 1.4 turbo standard and starts at 18k and well equipped at 24-25 not 28k ford you peaked.

Looks like a lifted focus looks ridiculous.

28 grand...okay Honda Hyundai Toyota and Mazda should get a good laugh at this attempt. Ford this is a hot mess...really?

I really don't understand what Ford wants putting Ecosport and Ranger after almost a decade of their launch in another countrys, they are old, can't beat anyone

This is 'echo' This is 'eco' You decide.

I have the 2018 SES.... I don't get the hate. It is fun as hell to drive in "sport mode". Great features, comfy seats, great handling. Perfect for city dwellers in the north east with the 4wd. People seem to be very angry about a product they don't own and have not driven. Don't buy the 1 Liter... it is under powered. The 2 Liter is the way to go. Honestly, it really is pretty great.
wolfman9999999 (4 дня назад)
Since CR doesn't like it, it must be good. I don't see a Honda or Toyota appliance badge, so it's a given the testers are automatically going to hate it. I've seen their domestic car bias displayed many times, with Mazda badge products getting good reviews while the badge engineered Ford vehicle gets bad, even though they are literally identical.
bestpilot98 (4 дня назад)
so sad that ford has decided to ditch building handsome sedans in favor of ugly pieces of s*** like this. rollin' my eyes and shakin' my head!!!!!
Bryan Smith (4 дня назад)
Not much, IF ANYTHING, going for it. Especially in a segment overflowing with small, more advanced , better looking small crossovers (?) all in similar price points.

That's the most pointless little shit box I've ever seen. Ford axeing the Taurus and Fusion for shitty Grandma cars like this.
Dave Travels (6 дней назад)
More expensive than a Honda CR-V EX, which is a superior vehicle in every way, and comes with all of the safety tech. What is Ford thinking?!@#$%^&* I got to drive one of these as a rental in Germany... No thank you!

I'd rather pay for a bigger, better SUV like the Mazda CX-5 at THAT price point...
John Dooris (6 дней назад)
Literally who tf would even buy this car? It's just too small and way under-powered
coldwynn (6 дней назад)
Ford sucks with their lack of support for family transports. Good luck Ford, many people think your pickups and SUVs are junk as well. What a freaking shame this American icon has been pissed on by greedy, prick head, loser corporate executives who embraced the "I got mine" and "Devil take the hindmost" economy. *edit* Oh but good on CR for covering things
Alec V. (7 дней назад)
What a compete waste of a car. All this, just because idiotic Americans prefer SUVs to small cars, or cars at all (including low wagons), we have this... anathema.
da jo (7 дней назад)
no thank..... ford really?
Michael Webber (7 дней назад)
The Focus Hatchback and Fiesta Hatchback are dead. No, wait, the EcoSport. Ford's motto: "we can make the 1.6L in the Fiesta look big"

I'm usually a pro-Ford guy but this seems like an overpriced and under performing excuse for a pint size SUV.

A trashy car that should have never been introduced to US market... Same as the Mitsubishi Mirage... Vehicles for 3rd World countries sold in US market... Absurd...

Driving a 2018 ecosport rignt here with the 2.0 and 4wd and all i can say is wow!! What a high quality well built vehicle.the fit and finish is above and beyond alot of imports who feel like pizza delivery vehicles compared to a ford.glad i drive a ford,never going ackwards and buying imports again.
Michael Cunningham (3 дня назад)
Seriously. I can see some "meh" comments about the base models, but the SES is a really, really decent ride.
datingsas (5 дней назад)
I left a positive review also since I own one also. And they deleted my comment it seems.

Wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't so ridiculously overpriced.

Robbie Steinmetz (8 дней назад)
No auto emergency braking and forward collision warning and non-standard blind spot sensors? Awesome! I hate all those stupid things. Pay the hell attention when you’re driving and don’t rely on electronics that might fail. Not saying I’d buy one because it’s not my style, just saying what you say is a “let down” I see as a great thing.
Phrancis5 (8 дней назад)
What a POS! Thanks for ditching your car production. For $28k you could get any number of larger better equipped and better engineered small SUVs, but I bet Ford loyalists will still buy these shitboxes.
Steve C# (9 дней назад)
Which is lamer the "Echo" Sport or this guy?
J Segal (9 дней назад)
it cannot be echo-sport. pronounce the following: economy. it's eekohsport. Ford can kiss my ass.
padistedor (9 дней назад)
I sat in this car. Way too much hard plastic and everything feels cheap. It’s like Ford made it from a 3D printer.
José Fernando Vega (9 дней назад)
Ugly car 🚘
Andre Thewhite (9 дней назад)
I own one and it is awesome. I also have a 2015 f150 and 2017 f250 platinum for comparison
ShaneO Sho Live (9 дней назад)
Iti domt think its worth it for 28k plus tax when well equipped. When theres other options. Edge or focus hatch would be better.
Aaron ___ (9 дней назад)
Sounds like poorly thought-out POS.

Looks like the kid of car that will start to fall apart in 5 years once the warranty wears out. Such a waste of resources...

Took the Fiesta raised it up and added AWD and nearly doubled the price

the Escape failed the IIHS right front offset crash, so how badly will this do? Ford wants some market from the hrv and little Chevy with this half baked toy built for the Asian market.

Cedric M (10 дней назад)
This is an indian intended car. It's crap. They're getting rid of their good sedans so they can bring in crap, like this. At $28,000 + you should look at getting a Subaru Legacy or Outback. MUCH better cars, for the money.
Paul Ho (10 дней назад)
The only domestic auto manufacturer to not need a bailout during the recession, and this is what they come up with?
Benjamin Francis (10 дней назад)
What an utter waste of $28k! Looks awful, drives awful, I'm certain the reliability will be awful too. Hateful thing.

"It's pronounced ECHO, not ECO" -- No, it isn't. Please stop obliging marketing idiots.

$30,000???? I just saw a 2015 E350 with 22,000 miles for the same price as this little toy car!!!

This car is garbage!!! Ford is going to go out of business, if they keep making this types mistakes
Jeff Morse (10 дней назад)
While automatic braking is available on some of its competitors you have to order the top of the line trim and usually an expensive package as well to get it. The vast majority of buyers don't.
carpuppy (10 дней назад)
Crappy Ford. I'll stick with my reliable Toyota.
TJC450 (10 дней назад)
For that price you could get a nice Encore.

ill take the sexy Hyundai Kona with the turbooo for a lot cheaper too

$28,000 for that? I can get a reasonably equipped Escape (which is a better SUV) for the same money. Is it too late to ask for Allen Mulally to come back to Ford?
Jonathan A (10 дней назад)
I'm sorry, this looks dated already. Those lack of safety features is a BIG mistake! No LED headlights either!?? You're becoming a disappointment Ford. You're going backwards.
colton phillips (10 дней назад)
This is the worst sub-compact suv I’ve ever seen. Ford wants to discontinue the fusion and replace it with this junk???
Willis Su (10 дней назад)
I will be pronouncing it YEE-coh sport, thank you.
Jacob Shreve (10 дней назад)
Overpriced, ugly junk.
Jonathan Hayes (10 дней назад)
This seems like Ford trying to cash in on the compact CUV/SUV market shift with a rushed-out-the-door unfinished vehicle.

I test drove this vehicle. It was a hoot.
Bad Drivers of Maryland (10 дней назад)
What a waste of money
Nicholas Smith (10 дней назад)
Sorry Ford but you can't change the laws of the English language at your whim. If you want me to call this this an echo sport, spell it Echosport, not Ecosport, especially when you spell and pronounce Ecoboost correctly. You are also allowed to spell Echosport as Eckosport if you prefer that spelling but I refuse to pronounce the name of this thing the way you want me to with the way you spell it.
Phos9 (10 дней назад)
Then they shouldn’t have spelled it ecosport.
CLMDADE (10 дней назад)
28 grand?
Brenden Pragasam (10 дней назад)
It's.... A fiesta with a lift kit...

Just like every other subcompact SUV lol. Overpriced too. Hard pass.
Jack Techcrazzy (10 дней назад)
I knowwwww!! The front looks like a transit.. But who in the FUCK thinks they are moving 5000+ pounds with an engine that's smaller than my soda bottle. The curb weight of this cart is 3300 ish pounds. 500ish pounds for people in the car and other shit they bring, and max 2000 pounds for the trailer. You moving right about 5500 pounds with an engine that's smaller than my soda bottle on my desk. Its fucking ridiculous!!
abbaby555 (10 дней назад)
Where is this assembled? Looks cheaply made...
WtrDogg20 (7 дней назад)
abbaby555 Well, that car is sold since long time in Latin America and Asian markets, made in India or Brazil... For US, it is maybe made in Mexico...
Jonathan Gahan (9 дней назад)
Yes, Ford was asleep at the wheel, and is very late to this subcompact SUV party. The EcoSport was already in production in India for overseas markets, and Ford did a quick and dirty, minimum change version of that vehicle for the North American market.
Robert LeBlanc (9 дней назад)
Materials and design has nothing to do with assembly location. For example, many new Audis are assembled in Mexico.

Ford junk. This is the best example of a money grab I've seen from a company.
Gurbir Singh (10 дней назад)
Wow! That's a steep price to get into an SUV. I won't be surprised if the consumers can't see past the raised hatchback that most of these are.
95thRiflesOCI (10 дней назад)
For the same price you can get a regular cross over with plenty of the amenities and all the safety features standard like a Rav4 or a Forester. Not sure who would buy this.
KOLT (10 дней назад)
Thanks! I will not be buying this car. Does not seem to be good value.
jimmelay71 (10 дней назад)
A lifted Fiesta with a weaker engine for $22,000. Sounds like a recipe for disaster.

the 1.0 ecoboost actually has more power then the 1.6 .i know i have the 1.0 in a fiesta .

Grant Albrecht (10 дней назад)
I don’t understand the name, that makes no sense that it’s pronounced that way. Echo is a word and spelled with and h. Eco is also already a word (well a prefix that’s become a common vernacular sort of slang word). You can’t just remove letters and create a “new” word that already exists and has an existing pronunciation, and they say it’s pronounced the same as the old word. That’s going to drive me nuts.
WtrDogg20 (7 дней назад)
Grant Albrecht The car was named for LatinAmerican countries in its beginnings.. Eco, as Economico or Ecologico in Spanish...
I believe it was developed in Brazil, so the name in portuguese / spanish is pronounced that way. (Eco form the word ecológia = ecology)
Sunset Originals (10 дней назад)
If it was pronounced that way it would be echo! Not eco
TradeAlong 99 (10 дней назад)
FORD...POS. Just get a Tesla or...
Jason Wade (10 дней назад)
For a company that recently killed most of it's car brands, they sure aren't hitting it out of the park with this mini-suv.
NFSCamilo4 (10 дней назад)
Waiting to see if ford will offer a manual transmission later on.
ChuckV192 (10 дней назад)
$28,000? What a turd of a car.
mike c (10 дней назад)
Why would anyone buy this? The Subaru Crosstrek is likely the best choice for a smaller AWD vehicle with ground clearance.
Rocky Tu (8 дней назад)
mike c aaaa
God Speed 913 (9 дней назад)
mike c this is smaller than the Crosstreck. Ford plans to sell the new Focus Activ here to compete with that.
Matthew Marlowe (10 дней назад)
While I'm sure that most of the complaints here are valid, I'm not the only one to notice that CR never ever seems to give a ford vehicle a positive review, while providing glowing praise to other manufacturers that might offer worse vehicles. Not saying that CR is wrong, but for whatever reason , I don't consider their review of Ford vehicles fair.
wolfman9999999 (4 дня назад)
So... you expect Ford to simply shrug off all those sales going to FCA for the Renegade and Compass, and to GM for the Trax, Honda for their HRV, Toyota for their H-CR?
wolfman9999999 (4 дня назад)
Yep. That's been their mantra for domestics for decades.
Ian R (6 дней назад)
OR Mitsubishi, Chevy, Subaru, and Volkswagen...
Jake Kennedy (10 дней назад)
This car doesn’t deserve the nice things they even said. It’s an old design that they are asking way too much for. They shouldn’t have brought it over, it’s just a money grab as they own the tooling for it and didn’t have a new design ready.
Tacoma98 (10 дней назад)
Matthew Marlowe they like and praise the Fusion
