Ford’s EcoSport takes the small SUV to a new level in terms of style, fuel efficiency, safety and technology. The striking appearance of the front grille, rear-mounted spare wheel, and front and rear skid plates give the car a strong sporty look. In the dark, the LED headlights add to the car’s distinctive appearance. 16 inch alloy wheels complement the vehicle’s sporty style.
Safety features have not been overlooked in the 2017 EcoSport. The doors have been reinforced with boron steel, designed to help protect the driver and passengers if a crash occurs. Parking is made easier with optional rear sensors detecting objects behind the car and generating an in-car alert to warn you that you are reversing towards something.
Newly designed approach and depart angles combined with the 200 mm ground clearance enable the EcoSport to drive over objects in the road and cross potholes and rough tracks without damage to the underside of the vehicle.
The new EcoSport makes clever use of space to offer spacious seating and plenty of room for stowing items. The interior incorporates 20 storage areas, including a cool temperature glove compartment, ideal for storing small food items or soft drinks. There is good legroom allowing seating in comfort for five. The adjustable driver’s seat allows you to choose your preferred position for driving.
On long journeys, cruise control is a useful function, enabling you to set your preferred speed to maintain. This can help you avoid breaking speed restrictions and can also enable you to use fuel more economically. Ford’s intelligent electric power assisted steering (EPAS) switches on only when needed, for example when you are manoeuvring the car in a confined space. EPAS estimates the amount of assistance required by the driver and the torque is adjusted accordingly, giving a smoother experience than with standard power steering. Avoiding the use of power steering when it is not needed also helps to reduce fuel consumption.
Ford have included features to help you use your fuel as efficiently as possible, enabling you to save money and reduce your impact on the environment. An indicator on the control panel shows you when you need to move up a gear for optimum fuel usage. The control panel also gives you all the information you need to manage your journey, including an estimate of miles available to travel prior to refuelling, and the temperature outside the vehicle. Electronic automatic temperature control, which keeps the air temperature inside the car at your selected level, is available as an optional extra.
Ford’s SYNC technology allows you to answer or make calls on your phone, and play your favourite music from your phone, MP3 player or iPod using voice commands. Alternatively, you can use the controls located on the steering wheel. SYNC with AppLink also allows you to access a selection of apps on your device while on the move. Text messages you receive during your journey can be read as voice messages, enabling you to stay safe while staying connected.
The EcoSport comes in bright yellow as standard, and there are several other colour options available for an additional cost: panther black, moondust silver, sea grey, kinetic blue, Mars red and diamond white. It is available in two levels of specification, the Zetec and the Titanium..
