Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Ford EcoSport looks to be a worthwhile offering in the subcompact segment.Although the Ford EcoSport is just now arriving in the United States, the automaker was actually one of the first to get in on the pint-size crossover game.

Pros
Cheeky style
Clean-looking interior
Choice of powertrains
Tailgate door could be useful

Cons
No AWD with 3-cylinder
Has been on sale globally for a long time
Tailgate may also be inconvenien

The EcoSport truly embraces the tiny ethos. It’s 16.8 inches shorter in length than an Escape and rides on a 6.7-inch-shorter wheelbase. Even within its competitive set—which includes the Jeep Renegade, the Honda HR-V, and the Chevrolet Trax, among others—the EcoSport is the runt of the litter. The Ford’s wheelbase is the shortest of the group, and most of its competitors are at least a half-foot longer overall.

Pros
User-friendly tech,
park it anywhere,
all-wheel drive is available.

Cons
Tight back seat,
modest power,
drinks gas like a bigger SUV.

Pros
Cute-ute styling fits with Ford showroom
Very nice interior materials
Lots of headroom
Large cargo area with seats folded
Sync3, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto available
Sync3, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto available

Cons
Side-hinged rear swing gate not good for urban parking
Unknown horsepower figures
Lesser trim models won’t have 8-inch screen
Cargo room is tight with seats up
Unknown fuel economy ratings

The 2018 Toyota 4Runner has a few different options packages, but otherwise carries over from last year unchanged.Because the value of the 4Runner lies predominantly in its off-road capabilities, we recommend the TRD Off-Road Premium. This trim gives access to important hardware including the locking rear differential and KDSS, the latter of which improves all areas of the 4Runner's skill set.

PROS
Serious off-road capability few other competitors can match
Variety of configurations to suit many buyers and price points
Versatile cargo area, especially with optional slide out

CONS
Tall step-in height makes for ungraceful entry and exit
Lacks many of the latest driver safety aids
Standard V6 is not particularly fuel-efficient
Choppy ride quality compared to more modern crossovers
