Jennings Motor Group takes a look at the all new Ford EcoSport that is now available to order. A smart, fuel efficient and compact SUV, the Ford EcoSport has been a huge success on the roads on South America before being transferred to the European market. Based on the Fiesta chassis, the Ecosport has a very different feel – the high chassis allows it to wade through water of up to 55cm.
A rear opening door and mounted spare wheel give the EcoSport that classic off road look that has been missing over the past few years. The rear boot has capacity of 346 litres as standard with up to 560 litres with the rear seats down to allow for the larger items to be transported. The fuel efficient EcoBoost engine option delivers an impressive 53.3mpg, with the diesel option producing even higher mpg on a combined cycle.
The impressive interior is spacious for a car that is only four metres long - even with the front seats back there is leg room for passengers travelling in the back. There is also ample head room due to the EcoSport’s high roofline. Large door pockets can fit a 1.5 litre bottle easily along with an ample sized glove box and a tray under the passenger seat for added storage. In the rear 12v sockets can keep the kids devices charged for the whole journey.
Over all the Ford EcoSport is a breath of fresh air and fits a gap in the market for the smaller SUV perfectly. To test drive the new Ford EcoSport , or for more information visit Jennings Motor Group or call 0333 414 9750.
