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.

Emergency Assistance: can call for help even if you can’t 

An important part of Ford SYNC is Emergency AssistanceTooltip. In the event of an accident, where the airbag is deployed or the fuel-pump deactivated, the technology can use a Bluetooth®-paired and connected mobile phone to help you make a direct call to the Emergency Services. You can choose to stop the call, or talk to those services if you need to. Crucially, the system will supply vital information, such as your GPS coordinates, even if you are unable to.
