The NHTSA just recently revealed the safety ratings for the 2018 Ford EcoSport. While it did manage to get an overall rating of 4 stars in frontal crash tests and 5 stars in side impact tests, it fell short in the rollover test. It only managed to a 3 star rating in the resistance to rollover test, which is fairly uncommon for vehicles in this category. These safety ratings put it below key rivals such as the HR-V, CX-3 and Trax. In fact, the EcoSport is the only compact SUV to score a 3 star safety rating in the rollover test.
