Potholes, burst water pipes, high gutters. In a car you might slow down or go in another direction. In the Ford EcoSport you just keep going. Like any SUV, this urban SUV is about getting you where you want to go. It puts 200mm of ground clearance between you and the road, potholes, ditches or whatever else is in your way. Add good approach and departure angles, plus 550mm water wading, and you’re pretty much ready for anything.
You want an SUV but your life is in the city. That’s why the EcoSport is the perfect fit. Its city-sized design makes it easy to park and get around crowded city streets. Yet its SUV capabilities let you go places you wouldn’t normally go – in the city or on the open road.
The secret to perfect hill starts. Hill Launch Assist holds the brake for a few seconds after you take your foot off, giving you time to smoothly accelerate away, without rolling. So if others park too close, there’s no need to sweat. And it works in both directions: uphill or down. (Automatic transmission only.)
