The EcoSport is smaller than all of its other subcompact competitors, and rides on the older Fiesta platform.

This front-wheel-drive model is powered by a 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine with 123 horsepower.

If you want all-wheel drive, you have to step up to a 2.0-liter turbo engine, which adds $1,450 to the EcoSport's price.

A robust Sync 3 infotainment system comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine is only estimated to return a dismal 27 mpg city and 29 mpg highway with front-wheel drive.

Because it was originally designed to support a spare tire mount, the tailgate actually swings out to the left, rather than a traditional hatchback.

Projector beam halogen headlights are part of the EcoSport Titanium trim.

The 1.0-liter engine provides mostly adequate power, but it's super buzzy and coarse.
