Driving Experience

The best technologies are always those that bring something positive to your world, solve a problem, have a clear benefit. And that’s exactly what you’ll find in EcoSport. From Hill Start Assist to Ford SYNC: discover technologies that make driving relaxing and rewarding, and life as stress free and enjoyable as possible.

Hill Start Assist

Hill Start Assist temporarily stops you rolling backwards (or forwards) when making a hill start. The system works by maintaining pressure to the braking system for an extra 3 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator. It’s also useful when you’re stopping and starting on slippery surfaces.

LED Daytime Running Lights

Highly energy efficient, these advanced daytime running lights help you get noticed during the day and seen clearly at night.
*On Titanium, Trend and Active models only.

Parking Sensors

Front and rear* parking distance sensors help you judge the distance between your vehicle and obstacles around you. When the sensors detect an object, they activate an audible warning that intensifies the closer you get to it.
*Rear sensors On Titanium, Trend and Active models only.

Cruise Control

Cruise control in the EcoSport includes an Adjustable Speed Limiter with Intelligent Speed Assist. This keeps the vehicle within your selected speed limit. The system can save you fuel, minimise the chance of speeding and like all cruise control systems, allows you to maintain your speed without you having to keep your foor on the accelerator pedal.
*On Titanium, Trend and Active models only.

Power-Assisted Steering

Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) automatically adjusts to your speed and the conditions. At low spee, the system makes wheel turns feel lighter and easier, improving manoeuvrability. At high speeds, when you need greater control, it firms up the steering.

Performance & Efficiency

The acclaimed petrol 1.0-litre Ford EcoBoost is the perfect example of just how far engine technology’s come. Designed to provide the ideal balance of power, performance and low emissions, Ford EcoBoost is an engine of the future that’s here, today.

Get the Most Out of Your Engine

The revolutionary 1.0-litre 3-cylinder Ford EcoBoost petrol engine is a six times winner of the International Engine of the Year award. And no wonder, you’ll enjoy performance, but also see around better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions (vs prior generation EcoBoost engines).

Swift, Effortless, Manual Gear Changes

An advanced, 6-speed synchromesh manual gearbox is designed to increase the speed and accuracy of your gear changes, including reverse. As well as making driving more engaging and more fun, the transmission can help improve fuel economy and reduce noise too.
*Six-Speed Automatic also available on Titanium, Trend, Ambiente, & Active.

More Fuel-Efficient Gear Changes

A Shift Indicator on the instrument panel tells you when to change gear for maximum fuel efficiency. It’s a simple but effective way to help make every journey more economical.
*Colour display on Titanium, Trend and Active models only. Black and white display on Ambiente & Black.

Essential Journey Information

An on-board trip computer shows you the essential facts like mileage, fuel consumption, speed and outside air temperature. It also includes distance to empty and estimated range left. With the FordPass app on your smartphone, you can receive health alerts for specific parts of your vehicle too. Like if your tyre pressure is getting low , or the oil needs changing.

Tyre Pressure Monitoring

It’s always important to keep your tyres at the correct pressure, to help you save fuel, preserve your tyres and help keep you safe. That’s why sensors constantly monitor every wheel and alert you if there’s a problem. You can also get alerts delivered straight to your phone via the FordPass app, monitoring tyre pressure, oil-life and lots more.

Comfort and Convenience

State-of-the-art infotainment technology, FordPass,SYNC 3, a sophisticated sound system, little luxuries like heated seats, and much, much more.

FordPass - Unlock the Smart Side

The FordPass app seamlessly connects you with your new EcoSport, keeping you moving in intelligent, intuitive ways. Get remote access to your vehicle wherever you are, track its last location and even lock it remotely for added peace of mind. Real time traffic updates delivered to your vehicle’s navigation system help you to avoid delays. And with Vehicle Health Alerts sent straight to your phone, you’ll immediately know about any issues so you can handle maintenance quickly, with all the information you need.

Hands-Free With SYNC 3

Ford SYNC 3 helps you to stay connected. You can control your phone, music and navigation with natural voice commands. And even send destinations from the FordPass app on your smartphone, straight to the SYNC 3 navigation. The system has an 8” colour touchscreen with pinch-and-swipe gestures for intuitive control. SYNC 3 can also connect to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and with AppLink, you can access some of your favourite smartphone apps.
*Only on Titanium, Trend & Active. SYNC 2.5 on Ambiente & Black.

Everything Close To Hand

The centre console features a built-in folding passenger armrest (on Titanium models). Underneath, there’s a useful storage compartment, whilst in front of the gear lever there’s space for mobile phones. Other features include twin USB ports, a 12v plug point and twin cup holders, with a small bin ahead of and behind them.
*Centre armrest only on Titanium & Active.

Start With The Touch Of A Button

The EcoSport automatically senses the presence of itsa own unique key fob, even if it’s in your pocket or bag. So just press the Ford Power starter button and the engine fires to life.
*Only available on selected models.

Set a Temperature to Suit You

With the Electronic Automatic Temperature Control, you just select the exact interior temperature you like and the system maintains it with advanced air conditioning. With a new, three stage Auto setting you control how quickly and intensely your car heats or cools.
*Only available on selected models.

Safety & Security

Some safety systems are designed to protect you, your vehicle and other road users in the event of an accident. Others exist to help prevent accidents in the first place. In the EcoSport you’ll find technologies designed to do both.

Advanced Systems for More Controlled Braking

Anti-lock braking system (ABS) and electronic brake-force distribution combine to ensure that your braking is effective.

Pre-Collision assist with Pedestrian Detection

This technology scans the road to detect vehicles and pedestrians ahead and warns you of their presence. It also arms the brakes for maximum braking effect so when you touch the brake pedal, maximum brake force is immediately applied reducing the severity of accidents and helping you avoid them altogether.
*Available on selected models.

Airbags To Shield You

In addition to the driver and passenger front airbags, driver knee airbag, side airbags provide thorax protection and are designed to direct the occupant away from the impact area. They’re also able to raise the arm of the occupant providing better space between them and the intruding structure. Curtain airbags provide maximum coverage and headrests offer protection from whiplash. With front and rear seatbelt pre-tensioners and load limiters, plus seatbelt minders, EcoSport helps puts your safety first.

Stay In Control Whatever The Conditions

Electronic Stability Control constantly monitors your vehicle’s progress. It senses when a vehicle is losing grip and automatically applies a braking pulse to individual wheels, helping to stabilise it. Using advanced sensors from the anti-lock braking and Traction Control System it monitors the behaviour of the vehicle.

Maximum Grip With Minimum Effort

An advanced Traction Control System eliminates excessive wheelspin and gives you the best possible grip, performance and stability, just when you need it most. The system constantly monitors and adjusts the power delivered to the vehicle’s individual wheels ensuring maximum contact and grip when you’re accelerating.
*Only available on selected models.

Help Keep Your Children Safe

The EcoSport is designed to help keep young children safe and secure on every journey. It comes with rear ISOFIX child seat attachment points, so you can easily fit two child seats.

Never Forget To Wear A Seatbelt

A driver and front passenger seatbelt minder warns you if you ever forget to ‘buckle up’.
*Only available on selected models.


The EcoSport provides you with flexible, cleverly laid out space, in one practical and capable vehicle.

Clever, Fold-Flat Seats

Thanks to their ingenuous design, the rear seats can fold down to give you an impressive 1,238 litres of space in the back. The seats can be split 60:40, they can tumble forward to make room for taller objects and, to help make best use of space, they fold completely flat.

Pre-Collision assist with Pedestrian Detection

The load floor in the cargo area has three height settings, so you can create a hidden compartment of varying size under the boot floor. When set in its highest position, and with the rear seats folded, you get a completely flat load floor.

Built To Conquer Urban Terrain

High kerbs, potholes, road works, speed humps… Town and city streets can prove hazardous. Which is why the EcoSport’s rugged construction includes an elevated ground clearance.
*International model shown.

U-Turns Made Easy

Unlike traditional, more bulky SUVs, EcoSport has a tight turning circle: 10.6m ‘kerb-to-kerb’. This makes U-turns on busy streets quick and easy, even when there are cars parked on both sides.
*International model shown.

Easily Clear Obstacles

The EcoSport’s ‘approach’ and ‘departure’ angles are set at 21.0 degrees and 33.3 degrees respectively, with a ramp break-over angle of 23.3 degrees (unloaded). These degrees relate to the angles at which your car can drive over an obstruction and avoid scraping its underside: essential for a modern SUV.
*International model shown.

Need To Carry Even More?

If you do need to carry bigger or bulkier items, you can take the option of roof rails and/or a useful detachable tow bar.
*Optional Accessory.

Stylish, Tough, SUV Look
