If you’re looking for a compact SUV that comes with lots of trimmings, the Ford EcoSport is certainly worthy of your consideration. This attractive car is in its element when driving around town, but there are more strings to its bow than just that. For a start, it comes well-equipped as standard and is available with numerous engine options. Whether you’re a private motorist or business user, the EcoSport represents a terrific automotive all-in-one solution.
This mini-SUV’s relatively petite dimensions make it a great fit for urban motoring, allowing it to navigate busy roads with ease and slot into virtually any parking space. Nevertheless, the car’s four-door body ensures that access to the rear passenger compartment and load area is as simple as can be. And the EcoSport is a smart-looking vehicle, with its raised ride height, rising window line and swept-back roofline, all contributing towards a purposeful stance. What’s more, there are numerous colours to choose from. Blazer Blue and Metropolis White are available as standard, while hues such as Luxe Yellow, Race Red, Agate Black and Frozen White can be selected as options.
Although not a full-size SUV, the EcoSport provides room inside for five. The driver benefits from a raised driving position, which provides a good view of the road ahead. Meanwhile, rear seats can be slid backwards and forwards, which makes getting in and out as easy as possible. And though the rear compartment can accommodate three adults, it’s even better for a trio of younger travellers, making it a great choice for families. That said, the vehicle’s high roofline means that even tall travellers won’t feel cramped. Flexible rear seating also provides extra storage options. A 335-litre boot space is the absolute minimum on offer and with 60/40 split-folding rear seats dropped, cargo capacity rises to as much as 1,240 litres. And thanks to a low load sill and flat floor, placing and retrieving bulky items is as straightforward as can be.
