Compact Capability and Fun: Compare the 2018 Ford EcoSport to the New 2018 Honda HR-V in Los Angeles

2018 Ford EcoSport vs 2018 Toyota C-HR

Two Subcompact Crossovers, One Winner: Compare the 2018 Ford EcoSport to the 2018 Toyota C-HR in Los Angeles

Are you looking for a versatile, compact, and functional crossover in Los Angeles to tackle your daily commute as well as late-night adventures, weekend trips, and mid-day errand runs? A subcompact SUV like the 2018 Ford EcoSport or the 2018 Toyota C-HR might be the right fit for your needs in South Bay. The EcoSport is classically styled in the time-tested design of the Ford brand, with a bold grille, practical side appearance, and a comfortable interior. The design of the 2018 Toyota C-HR, however, is incredibly polarizing because of its unnecessarily sharp angles and odd shape.

If you can get past the Picasso-like design, though, the 2018 C-HR may still come up short to you. If you want total versatility with comfort in Santa Monica, Hawthorne, and Inglewood, compare specs, features, options, models and trim levels, and tech in the 2018 Toyota C-HR vs the 2018 Ford EcoSport.

Compare Power and Performance

  • City fuel economy for the 2018 Eco Sport and 2018 C-HR are identical, so gas money won't be a decider in this comparison

  • The 2018 EcoSport can be equipped with Ford's smart All-Wheel-Drive System--AWD is not available at all on the Toyota C-HR

Compare Technology and Safety

  • Toyota Entune infotainment and Ford SYNC infotainment are both excellent systems, but only Ford offers Apple CarPlay/Android Auto--Toyota refuses to offer it
