    The 2018 Ford EcoSport has the car buyer’s budget in mind and stands out among its SUV crossover competitors. With the choice of two available engines, either front-wheel or all-wheel drive. Additionally, the EcoSport has towing capacity, which most critics and experts did not expect! Critics consider it a highly unique addition to its class, with its interior aspects and infotainment options. It’s a favorite among car buyer’s and critics alike, even compared to the uniqueness of a vehicle like the 2018 Nissan Kicks.
    The 2018 Nissan Kicks, replaces the Nissan Juke, but it left critics wanting more in regards to the drivetrain. Getting only 125-hp with its inline-four-cylinder engine, it lacks the turbo that other vehicles in its class can boast. But while the Nissan Kicks lack in horsepower it has surprisingly bit more space than some of the competition.

  • Infotainment

    2018 Ford EcoSport

    You will not believe what the EcoSport has to offer as far as Infotainment features! The 2018 Ford EcoSport S has plenty of entry-level technological advancements, including its 4.2-inch non-touch display with Bluetooth connectivity. The SE model of the EcoSport will give you SiriusXM satellite radio and navigation, even larger touchscreens, up to 8.0 inches, along with a new and very cool option: The Sync Connect services, or Sync 3. Sync Connect is a smartphone app that assists drivers in checking the EcoSport’s vehicle functions. It’s a vast improvement to remote start, as you can both start and stop the engine as well as lock and unlock the doors. With this system also comes digital climate controls, making for an even more comfortable driving experience. Your smartphone app also includes multiple personalized settings, so you can cater it to whoever is driving. And of course, every Ford EcoSport comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto; something car buyers can no longer go without, especially now that smartphone integration and all of its useful apps now come standard.

    2018 Nissan Kicks

    The base 2018 Nissan Kicks model boasts forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking. But safety wasn’t the sole concern of designers. They provide the 7.0-inch touchscreen standard on the dash. You do, however, have to upgrade to the higher trim models to get the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. With the expensive SR trim, you can get the much talked about rear spoiler that adds to the trendy, sporty look. And finally, LED headlights as a finishing touch.

  • Efficiency

    2018 Ford EcoSport

    The 2018 Ford EcoSport does well in EPA ratings when it comes to crossover SUV standards. When compared to other vehicles in this class the EcoSport offers the best balance of power and fuel efficiency. Additionally, the EcoSport has smooth and sporty handling that make the ease of driving more accessible and highway driving more desirable.

    2018 Nissan Kicks

    Fuel economy is where the 2018 Nissan Kicks stands out. Critics consider the Kicks fuel-efficient, for a reason. It’s already scoring as high as the EcoSport, with a 33 mpg real-world highway EPA rating. This improved fuel efficiency rating comes at the cost of offering an all-wheel-drive model.

  • Interior

    2018 Ford EcoSport

    The 2018 Ford EcoSport has that crossover look: small on the outside and large on the inside. With easy-to-fold seating and an adjustable cargo volume, it is maximized beyond comparison. The EcoSport is all about function, with even more room left over for drivers and passengers, even when filled to the brim with suitcases, and other travel wares.

    The EcoSport has plenty of cabin room and was made for comfortable long-distance travel. Anyone looking for a vehicle that can drive comfortabley day to day on the highway with ease and comfort will want to look no further than the 2018 Ford EcoSport. This vehicle is more than just flash, with the function and substance to back it up.

    2018 Nissan Kicks

    The 2018 Nissan Kicks is a head-turner for sure. Its exterior was designed to do its very best in being the trendiest of designs. Critics fear that like most trends, however, this one may be a flash in the pan. They liken the design to the trend of the PT Cruiser that they say did not age well.

    But while the exterior is exciting-looking, the interior is tailored to be more traditional-looking. It’s a bit mismatched as it looks both sporty and elegant. High-priced upgrades will give you excellent displays and gadgets, but critics feel it seems gaudy and leaves much of the interior space unusable.

    However, with 25 cubic feet of cargo space, it’s comparable to the 2018 Ford EcoSport. In fact, the Kicks adds about 7.8 inches to the length of the EcoSport for those looking for that slight differential.

  • Power

    2018 Ford EcoSport

    The 2018 Ford EcoSport has expected horsepower for a compact crossover SUV. These types of vehicles are not known for their acceleration, but the EcoSport provides a significant amount for its size. Even in everyday driving, there is an extra punch of turbocharged acceleration that most car drivers would not expect. Critics prefer the 2.0-liter four-cylinder with all-wheel drive suggesting its power is more linear than the front-wheel-drive option.

    2018 Nissan Kicks

    Because the 2018 Nissan Kicks doesn’t have all-wheel-drive available, its already lacking in comparison to the EcoSport.Even though it offers variable valve timing, the Kicks lacks direct-injection technology and fails to get above 125 hp and can only produce 115 lb.-ft of torque. Despite this critics say shifting is smooth, something not every vehicle in this class can offer.
