If you’re looking for a compact, clever and dynamic vehicle that’ll let you cruise from the city and into the great outdoors, the brand new Ford EcoSport is the car for you. It’s packed with smart technologies to keep you connected, all the way.
Designed to help broaden your horizons, our first-ever compact SUV will be available in Ireland in early 2014.
Drives your sense of adventure
The new EcoSport is as agile in the city as it is comfortable in the country. Lively driving dynamics and light, responsive steering make it easy to drive in an urban environment. Further afield, the smooth ride provides effortless long distance cruising. With a wading depth of 550mm (equal to many larger SUVs) you can feel confident if there is a flooded road ahead. The higher driving position enhances your feeling of control and helps you see more of the world around you.
Technology to make life simpler
Staying connected and entertained on your travels is a breeze in the EcoSport; it’s equipped with all our latest technology. There’s our brand new Ford SYNC AppLink that lets you use your voice to control some of your favourite Smartphone apps. For example, open Spotify and enjoy on-demand access to over 20 million songs. Or select the new Aha app to hear content from over 30,000 websites, including your Facebook and Twitter feeds, broadcast as online radio stations. Plus, Ford SYNC reads out text messages and gives you hands-free control of your music, calls and much more, with simple voice commands.
Power with efficiency
Choose from a range of advanced engines that reduce your CO2 emissions and increase fuel economy, without sacrificing power. Choices include the 1.5-litre DV5 90PS Diesel and the 1.0-litre 125PS EcoBoost, International Engine of the Year. This turbocharged 1.0-litre engine delivers all the performance of a traditional 1.6-litre petrol engine while using up to 20% less fuel for best-in-class fuel economy.
Spacious, smart interior
Inside, the EcoSport feels like a far larger vehicle. The class-leading headspace and rear seat legroom create a sense of freedom that’s hard to beat. The airy interior incorporates no less than 20 storage spaces, including many you wouldn’t expect. Like the glovebox that doubles as a cooler, using the air conditioning to keep your drinks chilled. And an ingenious space especially for your umbrella. Packing in much larger items is easy too, with a roomy boot that’s equal to the best in its class.
