I was looking at the EcoSport, but it seems more like a fuel saving vehicles then something meant for performance. I'm expecting it to be under powered compared to the Compass. And it seems like a gimmicky vehicle if their ads are anything to go by.
Seems like a lot of vehicles in this segment are underpowered. The HR-V is a dog, so is the Crosstrek and the Trax. I was watching the EcoSport reveal and was very disappointed by the power train but kind of expected it given the others. Not to mention the side opening rear gate.
Seems like only the Juke, Renegade, and Compass have decent power in the segment.
