The EcoSport has been the backbone of Ford’s crossover SUV offering for almost two decades. While it’s a much more recent arrival to the European market, it’s certainly getting plenty of attention.
With its muscular body shape, this model looks all-SUV despite its subcompact dimensions.
Throw in all the innovative technology and ergonomic design features you’d expect from Ford, and it’s certainly a tempting prospect.
About the Ford EcoSport
- As a crossover SUV, this model is designed to give drivers the best of both worlds. Its smaller dimensions keep it agile for city journeys, while its all-wheel-drive is ready to tackle countryside adventures.
- Latest versions of the model come with industry-leading levels of safety technology and AI, including an Electronic Stability Program (EDP), Hill Launch Assist, Traction Control System (TCS) and parking sensors.
- Its impressively designed cabin comes with a clever use of space thanks to numerous stowage compartments and flip-folding seats.
Did you know?
Upon its European launch in 2014, sales of the EcoSport were slow, so Ford quietly overhauled the model to better suit European tastes. Since then, annual sales have increased more than five-fold*.
