If you live in a major metropolis, then you know how much of a hassle it can be to find a parking spot. According toFordauthority, people all around the United States spend approximately 17 hours a year searching for a place to leave their car! The 2019 EcoSport is the solution to this problem. It’s a compact vehicle which has a length of only 161.3 inches and a width of 69.4 inches so it's perfect for squeezing into spaces along crowded streets.
The sleek crossover has a practical shape that affords it a bigger cargo area (20.9 cubic feet) than its competitors the Buick Encore or the Mazda CX-3 - it’s 7 inches shorter than both of them as well! Additionally, this beauty is proof that big things come in little packages as evidenced by the 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine. It cranks out an impressive 123 horsepower at 6,000 revolutions per minute and a whopping 125 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,500 rpm. It also has a six-speed automatic transmission for seamless shifting and front wheel drive to maintain traction. Lastly, the EPA estimates a combined fuel economy of 28 mpg (27 city/29 highway).
