2019 Ford EcoSport vs 2019 Chevy Trax
Before the 2018 model year came to pass, there was one undisputed leader of the compact SUV class – and we’re sad to say it wasn’t a Ford model. Then again, the only reason it wasn’t a Ford model is because Ford didn’t offer a compact SUV at that time – not until the aforementioned 2018 model year, when the all-new Ford EcoSport made its debut.
That’s when everything changed, and a new undisputed leader of the compact SUV class was crowned. But everyone who pays any attention at all to the automotive industry knows how hard it is to stay on top from one model year to the next. So, let’s see if the 2019 EcoSport lineup can keep its spot at the head of the class in this 2019 Ford EcoSport versus 2019 Chevy Trax head-to-head model comparison.

Is the 2019 Ford EcoSport Lineup at Brandon Ford in Tampa FL a Better SUV Lineup than the 2019 Chevrolet Trax Lineup?
The short and simple answer to this question – yes. But we know you’re going to need more than that to go on, so let’s take an in-depth look at some of the most important features and capabilities for each lineup.
First things first – power and gas mileage. As we’ve displayed in our comparison table above, the 2019 EcoSport lineup is both more powerful and more fuel efficient than the 2019 Trax lineup. Power and gas mileage advantages don’t usually go hand-in-hand – you usually get one or the other – so that right there should tell you just how impressive the new EcoSport lineup is. But don’t worry, there’s more.
Heading inside, you’ll see the 2019 EcoSport lineup and the 2019 Trax lineup are pretty similar in terms of passenger and cargo space. The 2019 Trax even offers slightly more passenger space than the 2019 EcoSport, though the new EcoSport lineup’s cargo space advantage is far more substantial.
