P2018 Ford EcoSport Vs. 2018 Chevrolet Trax
Urban drivers have shifted gears from small hatchback cars to crossovers which provide equal or greater interior space as well as more ride height and “trudging abilities” when the snow starts falling. Subcompact crossovers are the product of innovative engineering that seeks to bring the safety and security of a larger SUV into a package that parallel parks neatly and fits in the smallest parking garage spaces.
Although this class is new, it’s become a preferred class for young individuals and families who want efficiency and agility in addition to cargo space and safety. When it comes to this increasingly-popular class, the 2018 Ford EcoSport is the new kid in town and brings a refined style and extravagant feature list to the segment. Today, we’re comparing the 2018 Ford EcoSport to the segment’s model from Ford’s biggest competitor, the 2018 Chevrolet Trax.
