It is always good to offer a wide variety of vehicles, and Ford made sure the small SUV market was catered for with their EcoSport - a compact SUV which shares components with their best-selling Ford Fiesta supermini hatchback.

The whole recipe is quite attractive, as the Ford EcoSport also features:

  • Compact SUV styling
  • Good choice of engines
  • Decent driving experience
  • Based on a Ford Fiesta

It proves to have the right ingredients for a success, discover more on this used compact SUV in more detail below.

Engines and Driving Experience

The stand out engine choice in the EcoSport is the award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine. It is available with 98bhp or 123bhp, and can deliver 48 and 44mpg respectively whilst still offering decent performance.

There are also a few diesel engines on offer too. These can return over 60mpg, and will be for those looking for the best economy possible - trading slightly decreased performance in comparison to the petrol engines.

Based on the best-selling Ford Fiesta, the EcoSport is good to drive, despite its higher SUV body, a trait which Ford seem to achieve with all their MPV and SUVs.

Practicality and Running Costs

The rear door opens outwards, which some may find awkward, however some may actually prefer the quirkiness of it. Either way, the boot space on offer is 356 litres, which increases to 1,238 litres with the rear seats folded flat.

You do sit up quite high, which is something some people will quite like. Interior space is also quite good, with five seats and thanks to five doors access is a doddle.

To run, the EcoBoost isn't going to break the bank. This is thanks to frugal engines, low insurance groups and attractive service costs - which can be undertaken at your local Evans Halshaw Ford retailer.

Interior, Technology, and Safety

The interior is fairly decent overall, as it isn't too flashy and it isn't too boring. It's exactly what you would expect from a Ford; a simple, clean and uncluttered design.

Analogue dials are complemented by a digital screen and large infotainment screen, which give the interior the attractiveness it needs without going overboard.

As standard, tech and safety kit is impressive with the EcoSport. As the Titanium offers Ford SYNC with satellite navigation, cruise control, rear view camera and parking sensors, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and ambient lighting.

The EURO NCAP safety rating is four stars for the EcoSport, with 93% for adult occupancy, and 77% for child occupancy, making it a safe choice for you and your family.

Is the Ford EcoSport right for me?

As a small and compact SUV, the Ford EcoSport is an attractive choice for those looking for a compact and frugal SUV for urban life.

It drives well and offers some quirky features, along with good solid Ford design and a whole host of excellent standard kit.

The Peugeot 2008 is more stylish, and offers the same four star safety rating - whilst those wanting a five star safety rating should look at a used SEAT Arona.
