Debuting with the all-new 1.5 EcoBlue diesel engine and Intelligent All Wheel Drive, the EcoSport has something for everyone; whether you value premium audio quality from the B&O PLAY sound system, advanced technology with SYNC 3 and an 8" touchscreen, or the comfort in knowing you're just as capable driving into town as you are cross-country.
So it's not the size of the gargantuan Land Rover and 4x4s of old, nor does it need to be. The new EcoSport has an almost Tardis like effect, easily manoeuvrable around city centres, yet surprisingly spacious inside able to comfortably house 4 adults without the need for human Tetris. The ingenious use of space also extends to the boot, where a side-opening tailgate provides easy access.
But what does 'intelligent' mean? Well in the time it would take to blink your New EcoSport has just adjusted torque delivery up to 50/50 between front and rear wheels, adjusting and optimising grip to the road...20 times. Allowing you to rest assured, even in slippery conditions, this is the SUV you can count on.
Completely customisable however, you can still spec your New EcoSport with front-wheel drive and an all-new low friction six speed gearbox in the award winning 1.0-litre petrol up to 140PS and 125PS 1.5-litre EcoBlue diesel for greater fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions.
If you want the latest technology, look no further than the New EcoSport. A four-inch touchscreen comes as standard, upgradable to a six-inch or eight-inch version, every inch packed full of smart features to make your driving experience better.
The sculpted bonnet presents a cleaner front appearance, housing heated washer nozzles hidden under the lip. The distinctive angular headlights, positioned around the more impactful grille, now use High Intensity Discharge lighting (HiDs) complimented by daytime runnings LEDs. The design was influenced by an adventurers' rucksack, completed by the angular fog light housings like buckles.
New 17 and 18-inch alloy wheels continue this rugged, sporty character available in a number of finishes from Magnetic Low Gloss to High Gloss Black with the option for the distinctive, boot-mounted spare to complete the adventurous look. Taking it one step further the new ST-Line version adds; Ford Performance spec side skirts, bumpers, black finish roof rails, headlight bezels, Dark Tarnish wheels and extended painted roof and door mirrors as standard. Along with part suede/leather interior, stainless steel pedals and the renowned sports-tuned driving dynamics.
With a whole host of new technology in the centre console, it has been ergonomically designed with a simplified interface and soft-touch materials optimised for greater front and rear comfort and a more refined appeal from better quality materials.
So as you easily find all the new smart stowage solutions, put your tablet and snacks in the sliding passenger armrest and secure all your luggage in the expandable 334 litres of storage space; you can relax as you set the adjustable interior lighting to match one of seven colours to suit your mood.
