Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Ford EcoSport than the Jeep Renegade. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Ford EcoSport and the Jeep Renegade.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford EcoSport as you will with the Jeep Renegade, 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 Ford EcoSport or the Jeep Renegade, 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 Ford EcoSport carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Renegade.

Dimensions
Since the Ford EcoSport is much slimmer than the Jeep Renegade, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Ford EcoSport is slightly shorter than the Jeep Renegade, which may make it easier to park.

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

Performance
The Ford EcoSport has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Renegade.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford EcoSport doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Jeep Renegade.

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

Warranty
The Ford EcoSport comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Renegade.
