The Ford EcoSport has been given a facelift and is looking better than ever. With new advanced Ford technology, a more aggressive appearance and overhaul of the interior, this SUV has been transformed.
What's different in the new Ford EcoSport?
The new Ford EcoSport has changed in many ways and aims to take all its drivers to the next step - it's equipped to give you the confidence to do so in style. This family SUV is the perfect companion for busy lives and the new facelift model will just add to the amount it benefits your daily life. The 4 main areas of improvement are:
- Performance and Efficiency
- Convenience and Comfort
- Safety and Security
Performance and Efficiency
The upgraded EcoSport benefits from a brand-new diesel engine. Using turbocharged, four-cylinder, fuel injected technology, this engine can deliver an more than useful 125PS of power with emissions of just 119 g/km.
If petrol is preferred, drivers can choose the 1.0-litre 3-cylinder EcoBoost petrol engine with either 125PS or 140PS, a powerplant that has won the International Engine of the Year award six times. Both of these engines have improved fuel economy and low CO2 emissions, without compromising on performance.
Convenience and Comfort
The Ford EcoSport interior has been completely redesigned. A state-of-the-art floating infotainment system now sits on the dashboard, with the latest update of Ford SYNC 3 installed.
Drivers have the ability to control their phone, music and navigation with voice commands, as well as access to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
To avoid jams, the new Ford EcoSport uses Live Traffic to tell drivers which routes would be best to use. There is even a feature to help when searching for places of interest, just use the voice command to find what you're looking for.
As an option, the Ford EcoSport SUV is available with B&O Play. 10 speakers, including a woofer and subwoofer have been developed and fine-tuned especially for this SUV and makes music sound as intended by the artist. Quickclear also ensures drivers get on the move quickly with its windscreen heating capabilities, clearing fog, ice or mist in a matter of minutes.
The new Ford EcoSport is a perfect companion for the winter, with heated front seats that can be controlled by a heat level setting and a heated steering wheel for those cold mornings when gloves have been forgotten.
The British climate is unpredictable and no-one wants to get caught in a sticky situation when the weather gets bad. The new Ford EcoSport 2017 has an Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system which improves handling and efficiency when the roads are wet, dry or icy by sending drive to the front or rear axle when necessary. Drivers can also benefit from Hill Start Assist which prevents rolling backwards or forwards when making a hill start, LED daytime running lights and Emergency Assistance which makes a direct call to the Emergency Services in the instance of an accident.
These features help to provide a stress free, relaxing driving experience; just another reason to choose this SUV.
