Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

By:

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?

By: 
caradvice.com.au

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

By: 
thecarconnection.com

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

By: 
edmunds.com

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
