Specifically, we're comparing it to the 2018 Hyundai Kona, one of the EcoSport's main rivals, and it's simply no contest.

Take a look at the details below to see how the EcoSport bests the Kona in a variety of aspects, discover the difference a Ford model can make, and prepare to fall in love. Whether you're cruising around Boardman, OH by yourself or you're in Poland, OH with the family in tow, the EcoSport will impress all passengers no matter which seat they're in.

The 2018 Ford EcoSport vs. the 2018 Hyundai Kona

  • While the base models may put the Kona in the lead, the top-level 2018 Ford EcoSport Titanium trim comes fully loaded and starts at $25,880 MSRP; for the fully-loaded 2018 Hyundai Kona, you'll have to pay a starting price of $27.400 MSRP. For feature-filled satisfaction, the EcoSport is the way to go.
  • When you have places to go in Austintown and things to bring, the EcoSport's larger 20.9 cubic feet of cargo space could make all the difference in what you bring compared to the Kona's smaller 19.2 cubic feet of cargo space.
  • Taller Canfield, OH drivers and passengers will love longer drives in the EcoSport, as it provides more front and rear leg room to give you some space to stretch out; the comparatively cramped Kona simply can't stand up to it.
  • The EcoSport's four-cylinder engine option kicks out an impressive 166 horsepower and 149 lb-ft of torque; the base four-cylinder engine in the Hyundai Kona only provides you with 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft of torque, putting it squarely in the EcoSport's rearview.
  • You'll find 10 total exterior color options to choose from with the EcoSport, giving you plenty to choose from when deciding on your appearance at a glance; the Kona, on the other hand, only offers a mere 7 exterior color options.
  • While it's a subjective point, the EcoSport offers considerably more attractive styling than Hyundai's vehicle; with a broad friendly-yet-refined front-end appearance with minimal lines and creases along the body, the EcoSport is much more appealing than the Kona's confused combinations of deep creases and angles, angrily narrow headlights, and pinched rear fascia.
