Introducing the new Ford EcoSport
06 December 2017
Let us introduce you to the new Ford EcoSport. The redesigned crossover SUV is powered by three different engines and a host of cutting-edge features, giving it a competitive edge in the growing subcompact category of cars. Here’s everything you need to know about the Ford EcoSport ahead of its early 2018 release.
Don’t be fooled by the size of the 2018 Ford EcoSport; this compact motor is powered by three exceptional engines, all of which have auto stop-start for maximum fuel efficiency. The 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine has won the International Engine of the Year Award six times now, the 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine offers low CO2 emissions and a turbocharged 1.5-litre EcoBlue diesel engine (due April 2018) will deliver 125PS of power with CO2 emissions from 119 G/KM.
Control and Confidence
The Ford EcoSport’s in-built driver assistance systems give you complete control – and confidence – when you’re behind the wheel. From its Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD), which will equip you for changeable driving conditions, to Hill Start Assist to reduce the roll, the Ford EcoSport puts the driver first. That means you can expect an efficient all-round driving experience.
The Ford EcoSport is packed with new technology, but none of it has been added in vain. Every new feature has been introduced to alleviate a particular point of stress or discomfort, so you’ll reap all the benefits this clever car offers. The four-way adjustable, heated seats and steering wheel ensure a comfortable drive every time, while the 675-watt B&O PLAY sound system comes with 10 premium speakers for a better listening experience while you’re on the road. Then there’s the Ford SYNC 3 system, featuring next generation voice activated technology with Applink and rain-sensing wipers – both of which help minimise distractions.
If you’re worried that the stylish design of the new EcoSport could come at the cost of safety features and technologies, you can buy in confidence – the EcoSport has been awarded a 4-star Euro NCAP rating. That’s because the Ford EcoSport is packed with handy additions to keep both you and your vehicle safe, including a tyre pressure monitoring system, anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control and traction control. There’s also a full suite of airbags for added protection should the worst happen, so you can drive confidently in the knowledge that you’re in safe hands.
Despite its impressive specs, the 2018 Ford EcoSport packs a stylish punch when it comes to design. Available in a range of sophisticated colourways, the EcoSport comes with a range of extras on both the inside and out; the seats are leather-trimmed, the car boot opens with a unique swing-out gate and the LED signature lighting is just as striking as it is practical.
If you’re looking for a compact car that delivers on both performance and aesthetics, the new Ford EcoSport is hard to beat, and we’re sure it’s going to make a dent in the market when it arrives.
