Performance and Efficiency

The acclaimed petrol 1.0-litre Ford EcoBoost is the perfect example of just how far engine technology’s come.Designed to provide the ideal balance of power, performance and low emissions, EcoBoost is an engine of the future that’s here, today.

Get the most out of your engine

The revolutionary 1.0-litre 3-cylinder EcoBoost petrol engine is a six times winner of the International Engine of the Year awardTooltip. And no wonder. With a choice of 125 PS or 140 PS, you’ll enjoy all the exhilarating performance you’d expect from a conventional 1.6 engine, but also see around better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions.

 

Advanced diesel power

The 1.5-litre Ford EcoBlue is a brand-new diesel engine and New EcoSport is the first vehicle to be powered by it. Its four cylinder, turbocharged, fuel injected technology can generate a potent 125 PS. The engine’s quiet, refined and highly fuel efficient too.

Use less fuel with Auto Start-Stop

When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine (while still supplying power to essentials like the headlights, air-conditioning, radio and the Ford SYNC system). When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or release the brake on an automatic, and the system restarts. Auto Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can really help cut fuel consumption.

Essential journey information

An on-board trip computer gives you useful facts and figures about your mileage, fuel consumption, speed and the outside air temperature. It also includes ‘distance to empty’: roughly how far you can go on the fuel left in the tank. This is particularly useful on long journeys, or if you know you’ll be driving somewhere remote.

Engines that meet strict standards

Whatever engine you choose for your EcoSport, it’s good to know that it will meet Euro Stage 6 emission standards. For petrol engines, Stage 6 emission standards mean the engine can produce no more than: 1.0g/km of carbon monoxide, 0.10 g/km of hydrocarbon, 0.06 g/km of nitrogen oxides and 0.005 g/km of atmospheric particulate matterTooltip.
