Subcompact crossovers are becoming more and more popular with each subsequent model year, thanks in large part to the stellar fuel economy, exterior style, and innovation that each of them bring to the table. The forefront of the Canadian subcompact crossover market features the likes of the Ford EcoSport and Mazda CX-3; they both bring the athleticism of sedans and versatility of larger SUVs to the table, making them worthy choices to accompany you throughout daily life. But which of these two is best suited for your needs?

The 2019 EcoSport is much roomier (and more powerful) than its Mazda counterpart, and stepping inside will give you a measure of refinement that you can’t find anywhere else. The EcoSport offers ambient interior lighting, a built in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, a high-tech SYNC infotainment system (complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility), and enough driver assistance technologies (such as a Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert) to give you a safer and more secure driving experience than most of its competition.
If you’d like to test drive the 2019 Ford EcoSport today, feel free to contact Sherwood Ford, and we’ll get you set up with one at your earliest convenience. We hope to see you stop by soon and see what this subcompact can do for you!
