Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Ford EcoSport wants for safety and styling that match even the lowered standards set by its price.

Pros
Spacious enough
Available all-wheel drive
Decent fuel economy
Upmarket audio option

Cons
Heavy for its size
Also sluggish
Poor safety profile
Cabin’s poor fit and finish

The 2019 Ford EcoSport is competitively priced among subcompact crossovers. Unfortunately, its fuel economy scores aren't as good as those of top-tier rivals, and there aren't any advanced safety features aside from blind-spot monitoring.

Pros
Above-average cargo space for the class
All-wheel drive can be ordered at every trim level
Widespread availability of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
Sync 3 infotainment interface is fast and easy to use

Cons
Aside from blind-spot monitoring, advanced safety aids aren't available
Below-average fuel economy
Base engine might struggle while carrying passengers and cargo
Choppy, jittery ride on most road surfaces

The 2019 Ford EcoSport ranked #15 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Ford EcoSport has a score of 6.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 17 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Good amount of cargo space
Tall driving position
User-friendly available infotainment system

Cons
Poor acceleration with base engine
Easily unsettled ride
Large window pillars hinder forward visibility
Limited available advanced safety features

Nissan has given the Murano's safety game a boost for 2021 by making its previously optional suite of driver-assistance features standard across the range. Called Safety Shield 360, this package of features includes automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, and automatic high-beams, among others. Gone is the SV Premium package and in its place Nissan will offer the Special Edition package, which includes a panoramic sunroof, a 360-degree exterior camera system, faux-leather upholstery, heated front seats, and 20-inch wheels.

PROS
Bold styling, well-appointed interior, lots of standard driver-assistance tech.

CONS
Blasé driving dynamics, CVT is unrefined, low towing capacity.

By:

The 2021 Nissan Murano’s windswept shape still looks good and safety is strong, but it’s showing its age.

PROS
Unique style
Comfy front seats
Plush ride
Lots of active safety gear

CONS
So-so cargo capacity
Interior and tech show their age
Surprisingly thirsty
Not as well-equipped as some rivals
