Serving New Bern, NC

Finding a smaller crossover that is both practical and loaded with value is easier said than done. Now that you have whittled down your options to the 2020 Jeep Renegade and the 2020 Ford EcoSport, you are faced with a tough final decision. Which of these models stands out and lives up to your expectations?

Exterior

Both of these subcompact crossovers have black lower-body molding and substantial ground clearance for rugged functionality. The 2020 Renegade adds Jeep's signature shape with a flat nose, vertical bars running through the grille, round headlights, and sharp angles in the wheel wells. Also, the Renegade has raised roof rails and foglamps embedded in the lower-front fascia. The Ford EcoSport has integrated roof railing, a sharp angle down the nose, and separation between the small grille and the two pairs of lights.

Interior

As your comparison extends inside the cabins of these models, you will notice that both vehicles have a spacious cabin with seating for five. Their second row's seatbacks fold down quickly, and the front rows have heating and power adjustments in some trim levels. The 2020 Renegade has a molded dashboard that gives it a functional look. It comes with USB ports in all trim levels, a leatherette-covered gear shifter, and a few other items that are not standard in all EcoSport's trims.

Performance

Differences extend to the horsepower and overall performance capabilities of these crossovers. The 2020 Renegade had two powertrain possibilities. These are a 177-horsepower, I-4, 1.3-liter engine, and a 180-horsepower, I-4, 2.4-liter engine. These are both connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission with auto-manual and overdrive modes. The only engine offered in the EcoSport is a 1.0-liter, I-3 engine with an eight-speed auto transmission. It delivers 123 horsepower.
