2020 Ford EcoSport vs. Buick Encore


2020 Ford EcoSport vs. Buick Encore | Head-to-Head Comparison Research | Joe Cotton Ford in Carol Stream, IL



EcoSport is like a good friend. It has a fun side, but it’s also smart and always willing to help when you need to get a project done. And like a true friend, it won’t let you down. EcoSport is the fun, capable and connected vehicle that gives owners value along with the advantages of a sport utility. With a 1.0L EcoBoost I‑3 engine or available 2.0L GDI I‑4 and available Intelligent 4WD, EcoSport is a sporty, agile, fun-to-drive vehicle. EcoSport also offers flexibility with its spacious cargo area and fold-down second-row seats. As EcoSport sprints its customers around town, it also keeps them connected with FordPass Connect with 4G LTE Wi‑Fi hotspot and available SYNC 3.




The EcoSport may be a small model, but, it's big on space. It seats five people comfortably, and it offers plenty of flexible storage solutions for all of your gear. Plus, best of all, it's built and engineered by Ford, so you know it's backed by decades of legendary quality and reliability.

While the Ford EcoSport may be our favorite compact crossover, we understand there may be other models vying for your attention. Here, we've pit our new EcoSport against one of its main competitors, to illustrate all the things we like about this latest Ford SUV. 

 



Powertrain

Every Ford EcoSport model is eligible to be upgraded to AWD along with a more-powerful engine. The Buick Encore has these options as well but drivers will have to pay for the more-expensive, upper models to get them since they aren’t available on all models.


Cargo Space

2020 Ford EcoSport vs. Buick Encore | Cargo Space

Both SUVs carry a small stature and an easy-driving nature, making them both subcompact crossovers. However, with their compact size, the EcoSport still gives drivers the space they need and look for in a new vehicle. The EcoSport has 21 cubic feet of storage capability, compared to the Buick, which offers around 18 cubic feet.


Passenger Space

The EcoSport defies expectations yet again with its available passenger space. Everyone in the car can stay comfy thanks to its roomy legroom which is longer and more spacious than the Buick, both in the front and backseats.

COMPETITIVE STRENGTHS

 

Auto Start-Stop Technology

The 2020 EcoSport provides standard Auto Start-Stop Technology on both its 1.0L EcoBoost I-3 and 2.0L I-4 hybrid engines to help optimize fuel use.

 

2 distinct powertrain options available.

With a specially tuned 1.0L EcoBoost engine, the EcoSport promises 123-166 horsepower and 125-149 lb.‑ft. of torque. Environmentally conscious EcoSport customers love the 27/29 MPG (city/HWY), as well as budget-conscious customers who want to spend less on gas.

 

Standard Technology Advantages.

Many vehicles offer special technology for their drivers. The difference: the 2020 Ford EcoSport offers Ford Co-Pilot360 as a standard option with even more options available such as hill start assist, a reverse sensing system, BLIS Cross-Traffic Alerts, a rear view camera, rain-sensing wipers, and intelligent adaptive cruise control. Woah. 

 

Efficiency in mind.

The 2.0L Hybrid powertrain can rely on an electric power in certain situations to save fuel before switching automatically to the gas engine.

Hybrid Option

The EcoSport offers a 2.0L I-4 Hybrid powertrain with automatic transmission and Auto-Start stop technology.

 

FordPass Connect.

This 4G LTE modem can provide a 4G LTE Wi-Fi connection to as many as 10 devices and can be used in conjunction with the FordPass app to access features such as remote start, locating a parked vehicle, lock/unlock, and vehicle status.

 

Design and Styling Up Front.

LED daytime running lamps on the EcoSport on SE models and above. And when the weather turns cold, customers will appreciate the standard windshield wiper de-icer on the SE models and above as well.

Great experience from beginning to end. On their Website, I saw one of their Internet specials advertised, so I went in, set up a test drive, asked my questions, set up financing, and -- only around 3 hours after I'd walked in -- drove away with my new car. The purchase went quickly and efficiently.

I went in for my 6 month check up as required for my maintenance package. Quite some time passed and I remembered that I needed new wiper blades. I went back and asked if that could be added and my service guy just smiled and added it. It was all covered in my plan. I'm bad at getting names but I have had nothing but great experiences in the dealership and service department. Highly recommend them. Not everyone is perfect, nor does everyone have a good day everyday. I have read the bad reviews and am thankful I have not had the same experiences. Keep up the good work and get these reviews up! 5 star for this household!

I have been servicing my 07 Navigator L at Cotton since I bought it new. Great service still going strong. Wouldn't take it anywhere else! Service manager Davy Malloy is one of the main reasons that I still service my Ford and Lincoln vehicles at Cotton. Great attention to detail.
