Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

The latest Ecosport is far smarter inside than previous versions, and has the edge on the Seat Arona, thanks to soft-touch materials being used on the top of the dashboard and a cushioned section on the door armrest. However, below-par build quality is revealed by plenty of creaks when you grab onto the door handle, and newer rivals such as the Skoda Kamiq have a far classier feel.

One area where the Ecosport does beat the Kamiq, and indeed much of the small SUV class, is by offering a commanding driving position. You sit completely upright like you might in an SUV twice its size, with a good view of the road straight ahead, although the A-pillars are relatively thick. The rearmost pillars are also quite chunky, but large door mirrors and a standard rear-view camera help with visibility when backing up.
