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. And after keeping that crown on its head during the 2019 and 2020 model years, it’s time to see if the 2021 Ford EcoSport lineup can continue the tradition into the new model year in this 2021 Ford EcoSport versus 2021 Chevy Trax compact SUV comparison.

Is the 2021 Ford EcoSport Lineup at Brandon Ford in Tampa FL a Better SUV Lineup than the 2021 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 2021 EcoSport lineup is both more powerful and more fuel efficient than the 2021 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 2021 EcoSport lineup and the 2021 Trax lineup are pretty similar in terms of passenger and cargo space. The 2021 Trax even offers slightly more passenger space than the 2021 EcoSport, though the new EcoSport lineup’s cargo space advantage is far more substantial.
