Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda HR-V than in the Ford EcoSport, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford EcoSport will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda HR-V.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford EcoSport as you will with the Honda HR-V, 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). The Ford EcoSport is somewhat more expensive than the Honda HR-V. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford EcoSport is much higher than that for the Honda HR-V.

Dimensions
The Ford EcoSport is a little narrower than the Honda HR-V, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Ford EcoSport, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda HR-V.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford EcoSport transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Honda HR-V.

Handling
The Ford EcoSport has a smaller turning radius than the Honda HR-V, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Ford EcoSport has a little more horsepower than the Honda HR-V.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford EcoSport and the Honda HR-V. The Ford EcoSport has less cargo space than the Honda HR-V, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Ford EcoSport comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda HR-V.
