2018 Ford EcoSport Vs. 2018 Honda HR-V
When it comes to squeezing in features, technology and safety components, subcompact crossovers are a bit of a miracle. Not only do they manage to give you the riding dynamics and cargo-carrying abilities of a much larger SUV, but they also do so with grace and efficiency, seeing fuel consumption numbers on par with compact cars. These vehicles are valued by urban drivers who also have exciting adventures to go on when the workday ends. It’s no wonder that this class has seen some of the most impressive growth in the industry in its short-so-far time.
Ford’s newest badge is also among its most exciting. The Ford EcoSport is a subcompact crossover that carries the personality and abilities of Ford’s bigger SUV lineup into a small and city-ready package. It’s a refreshing and fun model that promises the perfect blend of utility and whimsy. Going up against the Ford EcoSport is the 2018 Honda HR-V. Let’s see how they compare.
