As we move forward into the new year, you deserve nothing less than to live your best life throughout. There aren't many better options for doing this than by heading out of the dealership lot in an efficient, innovative and beautifully-styled crossover vehicle. New for the 2018 model year is the Ford EcoSport, which has already found solid footing in the industry on the backs of all that it can do. No vehicle is complete without some healthy competition, however, which comes in the form of the 2018 Honda HR-V. Both of these crossovers are highly adaptable to any situation you come across, but how well do they match up mano y mano?

Our Kovatch Ford sales team is committed to bringing you all the information you need to make a comfortable and informed purchasing decision, so we've put the EcoSport and HR-V to the test. Let's jump in right away so you can see which one is best for your needs!

2018 Ford EcoSport Carbon County PA

In any comparison between top-of-the-line models such as the 2018 Ford EcoSport in Carbon County PA or 2018 Honda HR-V, the decision will most likely come down to a matter of your own personal preference. However, there are many ways in which the EcoSport holds a strong upper hand against its main competitor. First and foremost, you can connect up to 10 devices for hands-free media streaming as part of the SYNC®Connect Wi-Fi hotspot, which is something that the 2018 HR-V can't offer. In addition, a 6-speed SelectShift™ automatic transmission gives you a smooth, easy-shifting and responsive drive unparalleled by most of the market. This combines with Hill Start Assist and the assurance that comes with an EcoBoost® engine to give you a drive that you're sure to love for years to come.

If you're convinced of the 2018 Ford EcoSport's dominance in the crossover industry, we encourage you to contact our sales team at Kovatch Ford. We're more than happy to get you inside for a test drive and help you work out the right payment plans for your specific budget.
