Ford EcoSport designed for an urban environment

(July 30, 2018) To say I'm a little ambivalent about the 2018 Ford EcoSport wouldn't be stretching the truth. On one hand, it actually handles relatively well for a CUV. On the other, it accelerates with all the urgency of a street sweeper, even with its larger 2-liter engine. I find its styling somewhat underwhelming, as well, but looks are subjective. Does anyone really care what I think about the design? I'm still wearing stone-washed jeans for crying out loud.
