Learn more about the EcoSport's features if you are considering purchasing an SUV or crossover. It is compared to the 2022 Kia Niro in the following comparison article.

Design & Style

In spite of its compact exterior dimensions, the Ford EcoSport's cabin offers a surprisingly generous amount of head and legroom. Even adults have plenty of room to move around in the seats, so a party of up to five people can comfortably ride in this vehicle. The interior design of the cabin manages to have a pleasant appearance despite the fact that it is priced around the same as other comparable models.

The Kia Niro is a cozy vehicle that has a sleek and modern cabin style and dash. It makes use of a lot of hard plastics for its cabin surfaces but there is still a nice vibe about its interior style. The car has two rows that can support five people on seats that offer enough seat and leg/headroom. Behind, its rear row seats feel a bit cramped but enough to accommodate two adults.

Technology & Safety

The EcoSport features an array of technological devices that comprise WiFi hotspot, a 4.2 inch screen, a pair of USB ports, and six speakers. Safety tools that are standard include a rearview camera and MyKey suite.

The Kia Niro is equipped with tech tools like Apple Car Play, USB port, Android Auto, an 8 inch touchscreen, Blue Tooth, and six speakers. For safety, the car comes with rear traffic alert, collision warning, auto high beam headlamps, blind spot monitor, pedestrian detection, highway driving assist and more.


The EcoSport comes with a turbo-three 1L engine that can produce 123 hp. Its estimated EPA rating can fetch 27 mpg and 29 mpg for cities and highways.

The Kia Niro offers various powertrain options and its base model runs on a 1.6L engine that can make 139 hp.

The Bottom Line

The Ford EcoSport has garnered a lot of praise due to the many admirable traits it possesses. It boasts a comfortable cabin, a large cargo area, and a driving style that is extremely agile for deft handling. In addition, the cargo area is pretty large. It is likely that eco vehicles do not always include conveniences such as these, but the EcoSport has plenty of each to make it a well-rounded crossover. The infotainment interface of this vehicle's technological system makes it very simple to use the various in-car entertainment options as well as the navigation system while you are behind the wheel.
