Ford enters the U.S. subcompact SUV segment with the Ford EcoSport

The second-generation Ford EcoSport was introduced back in 2012, but it didn’t arrive in the United States until 2017. That’s when Ford updated the vehicle and decided to enter the subcompact crossover market in North America. The facelifted included a revised front end design, a mildly reshaped rear end, a new infotainment system with new technology, and some revisions to the drivetrain.

A successful nameplate in Europe, the EcoSport comes to the U.S. to try and fulfill a difficult task. It has to compete against a handful of subcompact crossovers, most of which are already established players and selling like hotcakes. Its main rivals are the Honda HR-V, the Mazda CX-3, and the Nissan Kicks, which replaced the old Juke starting 2017. Do you think the EcoSport has what it takes to stick it to all of the heavy competition and come out on top? Well, let’s take a good look at it and how it stacks up to see what it’s really working with.
