The EcoSport is designed to give you an enjoyable compromise between the utility of an SUV and the fuel efficiency and drive of smaller car. The C-HR definitely leans more to the side of SUV than the EcoSport, so if you're looking for something with a sporty, fuel-friendly drive, then the EcoSport is the way to go.

Power and Performance

The EcoBoost® engine lineup finds the perfect platform in the EcoSport, the base engine is a turbocharged 1.0-liter with a nice bit of punch and excellent fuel efficiency. The C-HR's has a slight advantage in power over the EcoSport's base trim, but if you need some extra speed then there is an available engine that is much stronger than anything the CH-R has to offer.

Technology and Features


The interior of the EcoSport is well designed and features some smooth, modern cloth work and a powerful media system with an available upgrade. The C-HR's interior features a little too much plastic for some people, and it does not offer a smart-device compatible media system at any trim level, so if Apple CarPlay or Android Auto are a must, then get the available SYNC® 3 on the EcoSport.

Both vehicles have excellent safety features, and the CH-R performs well especially in standard safety features. However with a few upgrades, the EcoSport offers everything the CH-R does and more. Both vehicles feature powerful air bag systems as well, overall we think that both vehicles have a solid showing when it comes to safety technology.

Ultimately we think that the EcoSport comes out on top handedly, but if you're not convinced, then stop by our Boone, IA dealership today and test drive a new Ford SUV.
