2 of 15

6) 2018 Ford EcoSport

$19,995 | U.S. News Overall Score: 7.0/10

Ford offers two engine choices for the 2018 EcoSport: a 123-horsepower three-cylinder that doesn’t have enough power, or a 166-horsepower four-cylinder, which also doesn’t provide enough power for the highway, but has a bit more than the base engine. Surprisingly, the EcoSport can tow up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped. Some compact SUVs aren’t rated to tow anything.

The 2018 Ford EcoSport’s fuel efficiency doesn’t make up for its meager performance. It earns an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city and 29 on the highway in its most efficient setup, which is about average for the class.

In our ranking of subcompact SUVs, the EcoSport holds a spot near the bottom of the list.
