After a long wait, the amazing new EcoSport has finally arrived at our showrooms, and we couldn't be more excited.
The new model brings a massive change to the old EcoSport, and introduces a huge array of improvements, new features and technology, and some impressive new drivetrains. Here are a few of the key things you need to know.
The new EcoSport has received a massive redesign, with a new front end bringing it more in line with the rest of the Ford SUV Range. It has sleeker lines, a sportier looking body, and a beautiful contrast colour roof available on the ST-Line model. Despite all that, it has still retained everything that was great about the original EcoSport: a great elevated driving position, compact sizing that doesn't compromise on load space, and excellent ground clearance.
Inside the new EcoSport sees an even more radical change. Following in the footsteps of the All-New Fiesta, the new EcoSport has been completely reimagined and refined. Using new, high-quality materials and a sleeker design language makes the inside of the EcoSport feel much more premium and comfortable. And the new infotainment system running SYNC 3 sits proudly on the centre console, giving you access to great features like an inbuilt Sat Nav, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and more. Even the Steering wheel and driver information areas have been redesigned from scratch to make everything clearer and more appealing.
3. The Drive
There are several choices for powering the new EcoSport. The industry-leading 1.0l EcoBoost engine offers up to 140PS on the petrol models, offering an incredible driving experience with great dynamics and impressive fuel economy. There is also a range of all-new EcoBlue Diesel engines, a first for Ford, which offers very promising performance.
For the first time ever, there will also be an All Wheel Drive version available, which will arrive later this year.
With this redesign comes a host of incredible new technology to make your drive more relaxed, safer, and more enjoyable. Features like BLIS (Blind Spot Information System), Heated Seats, Reversing Cameras and Sensors, Hill Start Assist and so much more, make this a stand out competitor in the compact SUV market.
That's just the start of what there is to love about the new EcoSport. To get a full taste of what's in store in this new SUV, come down to our Poulton or Fleetwood branch and experience it for yourself. We'll have a feature full video soon to showcase even more about this great car for you, but in the meantime, we hope to see you soon!
