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 EcoSport. Hill Start Assist and Ford SYNC: discover technologies that make driving relaxing and rewarding, and life as stress free and enjoyable as possible.

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.

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.

Sees the road signs you might miss

Whether the signs are at the side of the road or above it, permanent or temporary, Traffic Sign Recognition can identify them. An icon of that speed or no-overtaking sign appears on the instrument cluster and changes every time you enter a new limit.

Helping you see, without dazzling others

A useful night-driving aid, Auto High Beam temporarily dips your headlights when it detects oncoming traffic or a vehicle ahead. This helps prevent you dazzling other drivers. It then automatically reverts back to high beam, giving you maximum visibility.
