While there are a few similarities, there's also some glaring differences.

  • The Ford EcoSport features the SYNC® system, a voice-activated display screen that lets you keep your hands on the wheel while selecting from your media options.
  • Both vehicles include an AM/FM radio and portable device inputs, but the EcoSport also includes a CD player with MP3-playback capabilities.

Crossover Style & Appearance

While the EcoSport offers more cabin space to its passengers, it's actually more compact than the HR-V, which gives it a major advantage when it comes to city driving, allowing the EcoSport to swiftly weave between lanes, or even fit in a tight space. From the front, both vehicles have drastically different appearances, with the EcoSport offering a refined grille with not only smooth vents, but also an underlying mesh grille, giving it a versatile appearance. The HR-V grille appears to be boxy and doesn't share the smoothness of the EcoSport.
