    Petrol Engine Review

    • The EcoSport has a more powerful engine than the S-Cross.
    • The EcoSport's engine produces more torque than the S-Cross but its heavier weight negates some of that higher torque advantage.
    • The S-Cross petrol manual is far more fuel-efficient than the EcoSport.
    • Not only is the S Cross more efficient, but it also has a slightly better torque-to-weight ratio. Along with the additional off-peak torque from the electric motor, the S-Cross should have noticeably better drivability than the EcoSport petrol.
