Comparison Review

Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford EcoSport than in the Nissan Kicks. The Nissan Kicks offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Ford EcoSport, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

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

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 Nissan Kicks.

The Ford EcoSport is about the same width as the Nissan Kicks. The Ford EcoSport is slightly shorter than the Nissan Kicks, which may make it easier to park.

The Ford EcoSport has a larger turning radius than the Nissan Kicks, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the Ford EcoSport greatly out-muscles the Nissan Kicks.

With somewhat higher torque, the Ford EcoSport transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Nissan Kicks.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford EcoSport and the Nissan Kicks. With the Ford EcoSport, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Nissan Kicks.
