2018 Ford EcoSport 0-60, Quarter-Mile Time and Top Speed


The 2018 Ford EcoSport 0-60 sprint is slower than the competition. We expected the 0 to 60 times to improve signifcantly with the optional 2.0L engine. However, it's not the case and the 2019 Ecosport 0 to 60 sprint takes 10.7 seconds and 9.8 seconds respectively with the 1.0L and 2.0L engines. The rivals offer much better acceleration and power delivery than the standard 2019 EcoSport. The Mazda CX-3 and Hyundai Kona does a 0-60 sprint in 8.2 seconds and 9.2 seconds respectively. 

Some of the most frequently asked questions (FAQ's) related to the 2018 Ford EcoSport 0-60 are:

The 2018 Ford EcoSport SES trim is the fastest to reach 60 mph, courtesy of a bigger 2.0L engine. 

Does the EcoBoost 1.0-liter engine offer good performance?

The urban commutes might not be an issue but catch an expressway and the 1.0-liter Ecoboost engine feels out of breath. 

Which other compact SUVs offer better performance than the 2018 Ford EcoSport?

Almost every other compact SUV offers better performance than the 2018 EcoSport. Our pick would be the Mazda CX-3 and Hyundai Kona for better performance and handling respectively.
