Compact, more affordable four wheel drive.

The Ecosport, is a more compact alternative to the Edge. If you are looking for a car with four wheel drive on a budget, this is a great option. It surprisingly has more legroom, than its more expensive counterparts. A downside is the touch screen/ navigation can seem a little oversized, but this is made up for by its compatibility with your smartphone. Decent gas mileage, but has a strange feature where the engine momentarily shuts off when stopped for awhile. This saves gas, but can be unnerving.

- Jonathan S

Great safe ride! Handles well and comfortable.

Back seat is too small for an adult if the ones I the front are tall and the seat is pushed back. Drives well, easy to handle. Comfortable to ride in the front seats. Back seats are great for kids. The large monitor is awesome. Moonroof is fun. Back up camera is excellent. Safety features (lane change signal on mirror) is a great help. Drove it 600 miles and it did great except for going up a steep hill, the cruise control shut off because it could not keep up to that speed.

- Susan C

It is the perfect compact vehicle without being the smallest guy on the road.

This car is so comfortable. It is perfect for city driving. I didn't want a car, like I normally go for, as I hate being the little guy on the road. The Ecosport is perfect in the sense that it is bigger than a typical car but small enough you can maneuver around the city easily and parallel park with a breeze! The moon roof is perfect for summer driving, and it is got a good kick in the engine (always a must for me). Decent gas mileage as well!
