The Ford EcoSport compact SUV which made its European debut at the Frankfurt motor show is more versatile and capable than the model it replaces, with more refined styling and sophisticated technologies.
Ford Intelligent All Wheel Drive (AWD) is now offered for the first time, combined with an advanced new 1.5-litre EcoBlue diesel engine, delivering up to 125 PS. Ford’s multi-award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine also will be offered with three power outputs up to 140 PS.
EcoSport exterior styling reflecting that of the Kuga and Edge is offered in 12 bold colours. More personalisation options include contrasting painted roof colours that extend to the window pillars, upper door frames, rear roof spoiler and door mirrors.
The interior features easier to use controls and soft-touch materials, with floating central touchscreens. The EcoSport line-up will also for the first time include an ST-Line variant, delivering Ford Performance-inspired exterior and interior styling.
Sophisticated new driver assistance technologies and convenience features include for the first time Cruise Control with Adjustable Speed Limiter and a rear view camera. Automatic headlights and rain-sensing wipers also are available, as are Ford’s Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) that can alert the driver to vehicles approaching alongside; a new 4.2-inch digital instrument cluster; power-folding, heated door mirrors; SYNC 3 connectivity; and a new premium B&O PLAY sound system .
