The Ford EcoSport has enjoyed great success in South Africa, but even the most loved things need an update every once in a while. With a stylish new interior and the addition of exciting new modern features, the latest rendition of Ford’s popular compact SUV proves just that. Offering South African drivers an intoxicating blend of rugged SUV functionality with unrivalled city car practicality at an attractive price point, the new EcoSport is hard to ignore.
Perhaps one of the most striking nips and tucks to the EcoSport is the interior. Drivers, and passengers will love the stylish new interior which offers exceptional comfort along with a ton of nifty stowage solutions such as a height adjustable boot floor and hidden storage compartments for everyday bits and bobs. Comfort is key in the new EcoSport and the new seat designs are proof of that. Optimised for greater front and rear passenger comfort, and with the addition of luxurious full leather on the Titanium models, the EcoSport’s seats deliver a more upscale feel than ever before.
Exciting new technological features in the EcoSport only add to the increased comfort levels of the new versions. Take the Titanium model for example, which includes features like an 8-inch floating central touchscreen, Ford’s SYNC3 communications and entertainment system, with Bluetooth and Voice Control, as well as embedded turn-by-turn navigation. In addition to that, Cruise Control with Adjustable Speed Limiter, automatic headlights and rain-sensing wipers on the Titanium models, all help to make the driving experience far more comfortable for both the driver and passengers.
Even with a slew of updates and new features, the latest EcoSport models prove to be exceptional value for money with the EcoSport 1.5 TDCi Ambiente 5MT starting at R264,500 and the EcoSport 1.0 EcoBoost Titanium 6AT topping out at R339,900.
