Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Six-way power driver's seat now standard on SES and Titanium trims.Cargo cover and package tray included on SE trim and above.Minor exterior styling changes.

Pros
Above-average cargo space for the class
All-wheel drive can be ordered on 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 features aren't available
Below-average fuel economy
Base engine can struggle while carrying passengers and cargo
Choppy, jittery ride on most surfaces

Very little is new on the EcoSport for 2021, but it does get an updated appearance package, a standard power driver’s seat on the top SES 4WD trim (oddly, it didn't have one before) , and techy faux-leather seat coverings in the Titanium model.

Pros
Affordable, compact and maneuverable, easy-to-use infotainment.

Cons
Disappointing fuel efficiency, sleep-inducing acceleration, lacks interior space.

The 2021 Ford Ecosport small crossover forsakes its name and doesn’t offer much by way of driving excitement or efficiency.

Pros
Easy to park
Big enough back seat
Cargo space isn’t bad

Cons
No active safety tech
Spartan base model
Hardly a value
Built to a budget
Cheap, but somehow still too much

The 2020 GLB-Class is the smallest Mercedes that can be equipped with three rows of seats.

Pros
Chunky styling
Lots of tech
Right-sized

Cons
Third row looks tight
Too many Mercedes SUVs?
Bound to be expensive

Slotting into the narrow space between the GLA-Class and the GLC-Class is the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class compact crossover, but this mini-ute pulls its boxier styling from the vaunted GLE- and G-Class SUVs. We saw the concept in April at the Shanghai auto show and Mercedes-Benz unveiled the production model, in all its mini-ute glory, at an event in June; we expect the GLB to be on sale by the end of 2019.

Mercedes-Benz launches new-generation cars every other week, but whole new nameplates are rarer things. Enter the family-focused GLB small SUV...

Pros
Back seat and boot space
Comfortable suspension
Cool design inside and out

Cons
Transmission calibration issues
Base engine is nothing special
Is there scope for a diesel?
