A stunning mix of practicality and sportiness is on offer in the brand-new Ford EcoSport. It suits both urban environments and stunning countryside with its chunky yet dynamic styling to set it apart from its rivals. Once you’ve been drawn in with the good looks, the EcoSport will keep you spellbound with an exciting driving experience and useful day-to-day practicality.
Take the wheel and drive with confidence. Many advanced driver assistance functions are packed into the new EcoSport, including hill start assist and the ability to automatically contact the emergency services in the event of an accident. LED daytime running lights ensure you’re visible and turn up the style. Grippy four-wheel-drive is available for the first time to enable you to venture off the road and into more difficult environments.
Choose any of the invigorating engines for your new EcoSport, which all offer the perfect mix of economy and power. A multi award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost turbocharged engine is available with power outputs of 125PS and 140PS, while a 1.5-litre EcoBlue diesel engine makes its debut exclusively in this new model. It produces a noticeable 125PS thanks to fuel injection and a turbocharger. This car will thrill you with dynamic driving abilities that are now intertwined in the DNA of all Ford models.
The new EcoSport features Ford’s SYNC 3 software, also found on the Fiesta. This system incorporates an eight-inch touchscreen and a huge variety of functions. You can control your phone, media, navigation and much more besides via the screen or voice commands. You’ll enjoy every journey in comfort with adjustable heated seats and a heated steering wheel, and you’ll have the reassurance of a number of safety systems. These include electronic stability control, traction control, anti-lock brakes and tyre pressure monitoring systems fitted as standard, and blind-spot warning, parking sensors and automatic headlights offer extra security.
A clever use of space makes the EcoSport very practical. You can fold the three rear seats down flat to maximise the available boot space for your lifestyle requirements. This means you can carry a whole load of things like bikes, tents and equipment. An adjustable load floor allows everything to be loaded with ease, and the tall body offers excellent headroom for both front and rear passengers. The EcoSport’s turning circle is just 10.6m kerb-to-kerb, and its higher ground clearance means potholes, speed bumps and kerbs are no match for this car.
