Ford Ecosport 2013
Carsguide CarsGuide Editor Malcolm Flynn had this to say at the time: The Ford EcoSport is a fresh and credible alternative to the crop of new compact SUVs that have already hit the market, and sure to rattle those of impending arrival. Like the others, the EcoSport is an option worth considering next to small sedan and hatches of similar value.You can read the full review here.

Ford EcoSport Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford EcoSport here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Does the 2017 Ford EcoSport have a dual-clutch transmission?
The BL model, which was introduced in October 2017, doesn’t have a dual-clutch auto; it has a regular automatic transmission. The BK that preceded it did have a dual-clutch auto.
Known problems with Ford Ecosport?
I'm not surprised Ford wouldn't reassure you that the transmission in your car won't give you any trouble in the future. Realistically, they can't do that, at best they could only hope it won't give you any trouble. No one can predict what might happen, and unfortunately the reputation of the cars fitted with the terrible Powershift transmission has taken a hit with buyers.
CX-3 too pricey?
The starting price of the CX-3 is cheaper than its rivals at $19,990, so it should not be as expensive as you think. Of your other three, the S-Cross is boring but the only one I would remotely recommend.
