For The Ecosport is reasonably priced and spacious enough for four, while the Ecoboost petrol engine is strong.

Against It’s disappointing to drive, cabin quality is poor and the side-opening tailgate isn’t very practical.

Plenty of rivals are better than the Ford Ecosport, so it’s hard to recommend.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Unless you do lots of miles a year, go for the 1.0-litre petrol model. It offers the best blend of price, economy and performance, and its light engine helps make it the best Ecosport to drive.

We’d also go for Titanium trim. It comes with most the equipment you’ll want and is usefully cheaper than Titanium X Pack versions.

Every model will be cheap to run, but it’s worth going for the optional service plan when you buy the car. Not only does this cover the cost of the car’s services for up to three years, it’s also cheaper than paying for the services individually.

The optional Sync with Applink system is also worth considering. This lets you download a range of apps, including DAB radio.
