Following its success in America, Ford has brought the all-new EcoSport to the UK and it's available to buy now from your local Bristol Street Motors Ford dealership.
The baby SUV is available with three engine options. Kicking off the range is the 1.5-litre petrol engine that delivers 44.8mpg and emits 149g/km CO2, an 88bhp 1.5-litre TDCi diesel that achieves 61.4mpg and emits 120g/km of CO2 and the range also includes the multi-award-winning 1.0-litre Ecoboost petrol. With 123bhp, it's the first-ever SUV to be offered with such a small engine. It returns 53.3mpg on the combined cycle and emits 125g/km of CO2.
Depending on specification, the EcoSport comes with a raft of clever technology. There's Ford SYNC technology with AppLink enabling drivers to voice-control smartphone apps such as Spotify for instance, while other versions come with hill start assist, cruise control, automatic wipers and headlights, rear-parking sensors and a cooled glove box that can store up to six 350ml drink cans.
EcoSport chief programme engineer Nick Fitzgerald, said: "All-new Ford EcoSport delivers a clever and connected small car for our European customers.
"Ford's new urban SUV is economical, flexible and stylish, and will line-up alongside the new B-MAX compact multi-activity vehicle and the best-selling Fiesta to complete Ford's comprehensive small car line-up for the UK."
