New Ford Ecosport Technical Specification
Get the most out of your engine
The revolutionary 1.0-litre 3-cylinder EcoBoost petrol engine is a six times winner of the International Engine of the Year award. And no wonder. With a choice of 125 PS or 140 PS, you’ll enjoy all the exhilarating performance you’d expect from a conventional 1.6 engine, but also see around better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions.
Use less fuel with Auto Start-Stop
When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine (while still supplying power to essentials like the headlights, air-conditioning, radio and the Ford SYNC system). When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or release the brake on an automatic, and the system restarts. Auto Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can really help cut fuel consumption.
New Ford Ecosport Key Features
Confidence in changeable conditions
An Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system can determine how much grip, cornering balance and responsiveness is required in wet, dry or icy conditions and on varying terrain. The technology is able to send drive to the front or rear axle depending on requirements. And this ‘torque on demand’ system delivers exceptional handling and improved efficiency.
Seamless technology you can control with your voice
Ford SYNC 3 is a state-of-the-art system that enables you to stay connected and control your phone, music and navigation system with intuitive voice commands, or a colour touchscreen. It connects to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto too, and with Applink, you can access some of your favourite smartphone apps, including Spotify. Live Traffic can also help you avoid the jams. And you can even call up a list of local restaurants just by saying "I’m hungry", or access the Michelin Guide to help you choose and book places to eat.
It sounds live with B&O PLAY
Whatever your taste in music, it deserves to sound as the artist intended. And that’s exactly what you can expect in your New EcoSport. Why? Because it’s available with B&O PLAY. This premium level 675-watt audio system delivers a rich, powerful sound via a 10-speaker, woofer and subwoofer inclusive set-up. And this advanced technology has been specifically designed, developed and fine-tuned for the New EcoSport by B&O PLAY’s specialist acousticians. So turn it up and enjoy your favourite bands and songs in the concert hall that is your car’s cabin.
An early warning if a tyre is going flat
If it detects any of your tyres starting to lose pressure during your journey, the Tyre Pressure Monitoring System warns you by lighting up an icon on the instrument panel.
Advanced systems for more controlled braking
Anti-lock braking system (ABS) and electronic brake-force distribution combine to ensure that your braking is effective.
Clever, tumble and fold-seats
Thanks to their ingenuous design, the rear seats can fold down to give you an impressive 1,238 litres of space in the back. The seats can be split 60:40, they can tumble forward to make room for taller objects and, to help make best use of space.
U-turns made easy
Unlike traditional, more bulky SUVs, New EcoSport has a tight turning circle: 10.6m ‘kerb-to-kerb’. This makes U-turns on busy streets quick and easy, even when there are cars parked on both sides.
