Pros
Very attractive
Well-done interior
Good safety gear
Engaging responsiveness

Cons
Lousy infotainment

By:

Mazda has given the CX-9 several upgrades for 2020, not least of which is a standard suite of driver-assistance features called i-Activsense. The bundle includes automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and lane-keeping assist. Also now standard are heated front seats with power adjustments for the driver, rain-sensing windshield wipers, automatic headlamps, and heated exterior mirrors. Touring, Grand Touring, and Signature models now come with a larger 9.0-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, a new key-fob design, and power-adjustable second-row seats.

Pros
Snappy driving dynamics, great fuel economy, premium cabin.

Cons
Small cargo bay, third row is only for kids, low towing capacity.

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

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
