Crossover Practicality

A five-door body ensures that access to both the rear passenger compartment and boot is always simple. The EcoSport’s tailgate is side-opening too, which is handy when parked by a nearside kerb. Inside, the vehicle comfortably seats four adults, and is particularly suitable for a young family of five. Power-operated front windows and air-conditioning are standard inclusions, helping to ensure that an ideal cabin climate is always easy to establish. The new EcoSport’s 334-litre boot space should easily accommodate the results of a weekly shopping trip – or three suitcases. However, if more luggage capacity is required, simply fold the rear seats to deliver a 1,238-litre load space.

Ford MyKey is a standard feature of the new EcoSport. It allows the owner to impose a number of restrictions. This is particularly useful should the car be loaned to a teenage son or daughter, for example. MyKey actively encourages good driving habits, such as seatbelt usage, a cap on music volume and an upper speed limit.

The vehicle comes with Ford’s SYNC 3 as standard, which includes a 6.5-inch touchscreen, a six speaker sound system (featuring DAB radio) and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The latter helpfully allows the mirroring of an iPhone or Android smartphone via the car’s display. Titanium and ST-Line trims, meanwhile, feature an eight-inch touchscreen, and also include satellite navigation.

Safe and Sound

The new EcoSport is fitted with an array of driver aids and passive safety features to help to keep occupants of all ages as secure as possible. For instance, Electronic Stability Programme and Anti-lock Braking System are standard inclusions, each significantly minimising the risk of skidding. Hill Start Assist features too, ensuring that the car doesn’t roll uncontrolled whenever the engine is started on an incline. The EcoSport comes with numerous airbags and ISOFIX provision for securing younger travellers. Should the vehicle be subject to unwanted attention, the piercing sound emitted by its Thatcham Category 1 alarm will more than likely provide a deterrent.

EYE-CATCHING DESIGN

Introducing the 2018 Ford EcoSport

The most compact SUV in the Ford range, the EcoSport made its debut in 2014 and entered its second generation ten years later. Five years on, the new Ford EcoSport boasts major style upgrades and an almost entirely revised cabin. Now, the interior is a thoroughly modern affair, boasting the latest Ford technology and some welcome touches of leather, among other things. This racy SUV will certainly cut a dash in urban environments, and the introduction of all-wheel drive means that it can handle a wide range of road conditions with ease. Despite its surprisingly roomy interior, the EcoSport’s bijou dimensions allow it to thread through traffic and fit into the majority of parking spaces.

Ford EcoSport Lifestyle

A Striking Exterior

The new Ford EcoSport is slicker-looking than ever, with every fold and crease of its body adding an extra tantalising dimension. A raised ride height and rising beltline provide the vehicle with real presence, and the vehicle’s fitted with lightweight and eye-catching 16-inch five-spoke alloy wheels too. The new EcoSport has more strings to its bow than just good looks, however. For instance, it features power-operated and heated door mirrors, while Titanium grades and above are crowned with load-bearing roof bars. Other labour-saving features include automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, allowing the person behind the wheel to concentrate on the job of driving. Exterior illumination includes LED daytime running lights and front fog lamps. The latter ensure that the vehicle is always clearly visible, while the former cut through the thickest of mist.

An Efficient Performer

The EcoSport comes with a good range of engine choices – and an all-wheel drive option is now available too, with a 1.5-litre 123bhp diesel unit.Fitted as standard with entry-level Zetec trims is a 1.0-litre 125bhp petrol engine, which manages up to 61.14mpg, while producing a 119g/km CO2 emission figure. The greenest engine choice is a 1.5-litre 100bhp diesel unit, which returns as much as 74.3mpg – and produces emissions as low as 107g/km. For a fine blend of performance and efficiency, go for a 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine. This 140bhp unit produces 180Nm of torque and allows the car to go from 0-60mph in approximately 11 seconds. It also manages a very creditable 54.3mpg (combined), and CO2 emissions from 119g/km.
