The New Ecosport is coming, with a host of great new features, excellent styling and a better selection drivetrains.
Take the wheel and you’re immediately in command of a range of advanced driver assistance systems, all from an elevated driving position. Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) provides exceptional handling in changeable conditions. Hill Start Assist helps stop you rolling when you’re making a hill start. And LED daytime running lights combine both high visibility with a high level of style.
EcoSport comes with a choice of three innovative and advanced engines. First, there’s the 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, six times winner of the International Engine of the Year award. Available with the options of 125PS and 140PS, you get all the power of a conventional 1.6-litre engine, with outstanding fuel economy and low CO2 emissions. A 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine delivers 100 PS and CO2 emissions of just 107 g/km. And a turbocharged 1.5-litre EcoBlue diesel engine offers 125 PS of power with CO2 emissions from 119 g/km.
In the New Ford EcoSport, every feature and technology is there for a reason and all are designed to make your journeys more enjoyable. Ford SYNC 3 enables you to stay connected and control your phone, music and navigation system with intuitive voice commands, or an 8” colour touchscreen. And a 675-watt B&O PLAY sound system delivers a rich, powerful sounding listening experience through no less than 10 premium speakers. With thoughtful touches like four-way adjustable, heated seats and steering wheel, you’re sure of a relaxing, yet stimulating drive every time you take to the road.
Your safety and security is a priority. That’s why EcoSport incorporates technologies and systems designed to protect you, your passengers and your vehicle. Key features include anti-lock brakes, Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System. There’s a comprehensive suite of front, side, knee and curtain airbags, too. For these reasons and more, the car’s been awarded a 4-Star Euro NCAP rating.
With the New EcoSport you get a surprisingly roomy interior. Clever use of space and stowage compartments is enhanced by rear seats that can fold and split in two parts 60/40. A flip-up cushion allows the seatbacks to fold completely flat for easy luggage loading. And an adjustable load floor can be fitted in three positions: ideal when you don’t want things piled on top of one another.
