Expert Reply:

Good news! We have a great selection of 3 bike trunk racks that will fit on your 2019 Ford EcoSport. The Saris Bones that you were looking at is a great value option from a company that got started in the bike rack business by pioneering the first trunk mounted rack.

These type of racks are their bread and butter, so when it comes down to trunk racks they're going to be the best. The folding arms make for easy storage both on and off the car and the ratcheting anti-sway straps keep your bikes from moving around on the back of the vehicle. You may want to consider adding the HitchHuggers # SA3035 to replace the standard 'S' clips on the end of the ratchet straps and provide with a better fit on your Ford EcoSport. They will sit inside the cabin of the vehicle and provide a "stopper" to keep the the straps from slipping as well as protecting the paint on your hatch as opposed to the 'S' clips which are going to sit on the edges of the hatch door.

I recommend going with the Saris SuperBones # SA802 because of the integrated security/lock system that comes on the rack, as well as the steel cables that run inside all of the straps that not only are going to provide additional strength for mounting to your vehicle, but they're going to keep someone from cutting the straps and taking off with the whole rack. It also comes equipped with the ratcheting anti-sway straps for bike stability and folding arms for compact storage both on and off the vehicle.

Both of these racks have dual moving arms, to reduce the need for a frame adapter in most cases. If you are planning on carrying some bikes with odd shaped frames you may want to add the Saris Bike Beam frame adapter # SA3040 which is going to make mounting those frames on the carrier much easier and provide added stability.
