3 Things to Know: 2018 Ford EcoSport
The auto industry’s not done with crossovers yet, and Ford’s latest addition to the segment is the versatile and practical EcoSport that features a host of technology as well as an attractive design and performance. Since there’s so much to know about the all-new EcoSport, we decided to lay out the top 3 most important things to know about this stellar little CUV from the Blue Oval.
- The ideal downsizer or second vehicle
There’s no denying that the Ford EcoSport is ideal for those looking to downsize from a larger SUV or for those who’ve recently found themselves needing less room to cart people or things around (empty nesters). The 2018 Ford EcoSport offers the perfect size and drivability with its compact dimensions which make it ideal for urban life, and its 1.0L 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine that’s not only fun to drive but also highly fuel efficient.
- Ambient lighting makes it uniquely yours
The 2018 Ford EcoSport offers up a roomy and comfortable interior space that also features 5 optional interior colours and up to 7 ambient lighting choices. That means, you can make your Ford EcoSport uniquely your own, and really match your EcoSport to your personality.
- Swinging tailgate
Here’s the most unique feature on the 2018 Ford EcoSport: the swinging tailgate. Instead of the standard lifting tailgate, the Ford EcoSport’s swings to the left. This feature is ideal for buyers who are slightly shorter and always jumping to reach the liftgate and bring it back down. It also saves you from having to step out into traffic when unloading curbside. And about the space behind that fancy swinging tailgate: With the second row up there’s a whopping 592 litres, and with those folded flat that number jumps to 1,415 litres.
