New Ford EcoSport
Built on Ford’s global small car platform, the compact EcoSport will deliver the agility and fuel efficiency of a small family car but also have an SUV appeal with its flexibility, spaciousness and high driving position.
The all-new EcoSport will be offered with Ford’s innovative 123 bhp 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine, which was crowned “International Engine of the Year.” Also available will be a 109 bhp 1.5-litre petrol engine and a 89 bhp 1.5-litre diesel engine expected to deliver class-leading fuel efficiency.
The EcoSport will be equipped with Ford SYNC voice-activated in-car connectivity system as well as SYNC Emergency Assistance. In addition, the compact SUV will also offer Ford SYNC AppLink, which enables customers to voice-control smartphone apps from the driver’s seat.
Expect to see this on sale later in the year.
