Ford unveiled the EcoSport to the world's press at the Frankfurt Motor Show and for those that thought that it would be just another quick flick of the designers pencil that couldn't be any further from the truth.The car which hit the UK in early January 2018 boasts a whole new look. From nose to tail the car has really gone under the surgeons knife. The front of the car now shares a family resemblance with its larger siblings the Kuga and Edge and give the EcoSport a much more aggressive look than its previous form. But the transformation doesn't end there. The rear has new lights, when the car is in it's new ST-Line guise it will have a bigger front bumper, side skirts and 17" alloys to finish the look.
Ford have also broadened the range of power units available with the introduction of a 1.5-Litre diesel engine which has 123bhp and will be paired with a new six-speed gearbox to give maximum power and economy. The line up of power units is then completed with a range of Ford's brilliant Ecoboost petrol engines which deliver 99bhp, 123bhp and 138bhp respectively.
