Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Trax offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Ford EcoSport, with comparable head- and legroom. The Ford EcoSport will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Trax.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Trax as you will with the Ford EcoSport, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Trax or the Ford EcoSport, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Trax carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford EcoSport.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Trax is about the same width as the Ford EcoSport. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Trax, which is slightly longer than the Ford EcoSport.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Trax and the Ford EcoSport are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Chevrolet Trax has the same turning radius as the Ford EcoSport, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chevrolet Trax has a little less horsepower than the Ford EcoSport.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Trax and the Ford EcoSport. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Chevrolet Trax as you will in the Ford EcoSport.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Trax comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford EcoSport.
