Ford EcoSport Overview
The new Ford EcoSport is smart, capable, powerful and fuel-efficient. In fact, it’s an entirely new type of SUV: a Smart Utility Vehicle.
One look and you can see this vehicle is built for purpose: high ground clearance, front and rear skid plates and rear-mounted spare wheel are enough to tell you that.
But there’s more to the new Ford EcoSport than utility alone – a lot more. SYNC lets you make and take calls and control your music just by using your voice. And when you receive a text, just say the word and your car will read it to you.
The new Ford EcoSport has a range of other technologies designed to make every drive as safe, comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
For example, state-of-the-art engines include the award winning 1.0 litre 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine (International Engine of the Year for three years running). Combined with advanced transmissions, they deliver the perfect combination of rewarding performance, pulling power when you need it and exceptional fuel-efficiency.
Add a flexible, quiet interior with loads of ingenious storage spaces everywhere and you’ve got an SUV that’s not only designed for the urban jungle, it’s built to escape it.
Driving confidence and a commanding view
Busy city roads, tight parking spaces, narrow side streets…Thanks to clever design, EcoSport navigates them all with ease. This agility and manoevrability is matched by visibility: an elevated driving position giving you and your passengers an impressive view of the road ahead and the world around you.
A revolutionary mix of power and efficiency
The 1.0 litre, 3-cylinder EcoBoost petrol engine is a product of ingenious design and clever engineering. In fact, its revolutionary technology delivers both the power of a big engine and the fuel economy of a smaller one: a feat that’s led to EcoBoost winning the prestigious International Engine of the Year Award for an unparallelled three years in succession.
Advanced hands-free technology
Ford SYNC lets you control your music and make and receive calls on your mobile, using simple, direct voice commands. You can use voice commands to play songs from a USB or MP3/iPod®too, or stream music from a Bluetooth®-compatible phone. The system even reads your incoming texts aloud. (Standard)

Comfortable seats, always with a great view
The driver’s seat has built-in lumbar support and is 6-way adjustable, making it easy to find and fix your ideal driving position. Driver and front passenger seats can also be heated (part of optional Winter Pack). Passengers can tilt their seats forwards and backwards, so they can make themselves comfortable too. And everyone gets an elevated view of the road.
Safety and security you can depend on
State-of-the-art airbag system
The EcoSport comes with driver, passenger, curtain and side airbags, as well as a driver's knee airbag: all fitted as standard. Advanced sensors are also positioned at key points in the vehicle to ensure a swift and controlled response.
Whether you’re the driver or a passenger, you can be sure that a comprehensive package of safety measures are designed to protect you. The Ford EcoSport is also equipped with security measures that can help keep your car (and your valuables) safe from thieves.
Ford SYNC with Emergency Assist
An important and potentially life-saving part of Ford SYNC is Emergency Assist*. In the unlikely event of an accident, where the airbag is deployed or the fuel-pump deactivated, the technology can help make a direct call to the Emergency Services for you. Crucially, the system will supply vital information, such as your GPS coordinates, even if you are unconscious*
*Ford Emergency Assistance is an innovative SYNC feature that uses a Bluetooth® -paired and connected mobile phone to help vehicle occupants initiate a direct call to the local Communications Centre, following a vehicle crash event involving an airbag deployment or fuel pump shut off. The feature operates in more than 40 European countries and regions.
Helping to keep children safe
The EcoSport is designed to help keep young children safe and secure on every journey. And it comes with four rear ISOFIX child seat attachment points, so you can easily fit two child seats.
Complete the tough, SUV look
A spare wheel can be mounted on the rear door, adding to the Ford EcoSport’s stand-out-from-the-crowd image. With a body coloured cover too, the option is as stylish as it is practical. If you’d prefer not to take the spare wheel option, a tyre repair kit is supplied as standard.
A wide range of accessories are available to compliment your EcoSport from roof transportation including roof boxes and cycle carriers to sporty styling with our range of EcoSport alloy wheels.
