Driving Experience

The best technologies are always those that bring something positive to your world, solve a problem, have a clear benefit. And that’s exactly what you’ll find in New EcoSport. From Intelligent All-Wheel Drive to Hill Start Assist and Ford SYNC: discover technologies that make driving relaxing and rewarding, and life as stress free and enjoyable as possible.

Confidence in changeable conditions

An Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system can determine how much grip, cornering balance and responsiveness is required in wet, dry or icy conditions and on varying terrain. The technology is able to send drive to the front or rear axle depending on requirements. And this ‘torque on demand’ system delivers exceptional handling and improved efficiency.

Extra control during hill starts 

Hill Start Assist temporarily stops you rolling backwards (or forwards) when making a hill start. The system works by maintaining pressure to the braking system for an extra 2.5 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator. It’s also useful when you’re stopping and starting on slippery surfaces.

Ford EcoSport Rear View Camera

Easier, safer reversing

Bollards, bicycles, low walls… The rear-view camera shows whatever’s behind you on a screen built into the centre console. As well as revealing objects you might miss, the system displays virtual lines to help you park into the smallest of spaces. The camera activates automatically when you select reverse gear.

FordPass with Live Traffic in New Ford EcoSport

FordPass. Your key to a better journey

The FordPass app is a powerful new way to access a range of Ford services and experiences. It’s also designed to help make life and mobility easier, as well as make journeys more enjoyable. 

By downloading the FordPass app, you can be in touch with your vehicle in more advanced ways. From accessing your vehicle’s information to managing its service needs, from helping you find parking to putting you in touch with Roadside Assistance, it’s all on your smartphone.

Another essential feature is Live TrafficTooltip. This provides you with real-time traffic information, such as traffic speed, accidents and road closures, as well as alternate route guidance and mapping. And it’s all designed to help you avoid problem areas, making every journey as easy as possible.
