Ford EcoSport: No rivals on local market

The Ford EcoSport available at McEnearneyQuality Inc. (MQI)

Ford’s EcoSport is more stylish, more comfortable and better to drive, and had has no real rivals on the local market. 

But credit where credit’s due, Ford done much work on the revised model. Driving the new car on UK roads for the first time to see whether upgraded springs, dampers and steering, as well as stiffer anti-roll bars, lower suspension and improved sound deadening has corrected the shortcoming on its predecessor model. 

Gone is the awkward boot-mounted spare wheel – in its place is a more conventional rear end with the number plate moved up from the bumper to the boot. It gets the same Fiesta-type front end and angular headlamps, but more has been done inside to spruce up the interior. 

Our top-spec Titanium model now gets half-leather seats, while all cars now come with soft-touch headlining, additional chrome trim and some glossy accents on the dash. The introduction of the flagship Titanium S trim next summer will bring the Sony DAB radio from the Fiesta. 

But this isn’t a car designed for the racetrack. As a supermini-SUV it needs to be easy to manoeuvre around town and comfortable on the occasional longer journey. The removal of the spare wheel simplifies parking.
