Here's why we think the Ford EcoSport is the perfect WFH buddy

If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that no matter what happens, the world never stops.

The pandemic, however bleak and tragic, has shown the resiliency of the human spirit and the drive that pushes people forward. Working from home is now a reality and it affords us both new opportunities and challenges never before experienced.

While companies often provide you with a complete infrastructure of technologies to assist you in your work at the office, you’re more likely to fend for yourself when working at home. Luckily, technology has caught up with the changing needs of average work-from-home employees. Devices such as smartphones, laptops, and smart home systems such as Amazon Alexa are no longer just consumer products that cater to domestic requirements but are utilized for professional use as well. Suddenly all the gadgets you have at home are now essential items to help you with your everyday workflow.

In this regard, the 2021 Ford EcoSport proves to be the perfect work from home companion. Here are five ways the Ford EcoSport is an essential WFH tool.

It's smart as you want it to be

Your home office is filled with more tech devices to make your life easier. Smartphones and computers have evolved to be as intuitive to our needs as they can possibly be. Never in the history of mankind has technology been so accessible to everyone, that the Jetson’s only advantage will be their flying cars. The 2021 Ford EcoSport extends the same level of technological intuitiveness to your drive.

Carrying all your groceries can be quite a taxing affair and fumbling for your keys should be the least of your worries, not while every second spent outside can be a health risk. Smart keyless entry detects your keys on your person and automatically unlocks the doors for you, saving you precious seconds and the anxiety of having to put all your stuff down just to grab your keys. You also do not need to pull your keys out to start the ignition, thanks to the Start/Stop button that also recognizes the keys inside the Ford EcoSport.

The 2021 Ford EcoSport can also automatically level your headlamps amid oncoming traffic. You definitely want to be considerate when beaming your halogen headlamps. 

Unparalleled connectivity

Keeping yourself connected to the internet allows you to stay in touch with your loved ones as well as an entire world of information. Staying informed gives you an advantage in both work and your personal life. Working at home has also given everyone the chance to connect with both family and friends while being productive. The 2021 Ford EcoSport, with Sync 3 Connectivity and Applink and Voice Control, integrates seamlessly with your smartphone — instantly transforming it into one of the smartest crossovers in the market.

Stay in touch with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, giving the 2021 Ford EcoSport access to a wide variety of apps to assist you on your drive such as Waze, Maps, Spotify and Podcasts. You don’t even have to pick your phone up, keeping you safe with Applink and Voice Control. 

Amazon Alexa shows us that we can easily access multiple commands like reading text messages and e-mails back to you when prompted by voice. You can experience the same convenience and technology inside the 2021 Ford EcoSport. 

Multimedia machine

Working at home may have its advantages, but it also blurs the line between your working leisure hours. Having music in your life can help with your mental health and make your everyday, mundane tasks more bearable. The 2021 Ford EcoSport and its Sync 3 Connectivity isn’t just for work. After all, all work and no play makes Juan and Maria dull.

Controlling your media and apps with the amazing, eight-inch full color touchscreen, and blasting tunes through the seven speakers all around the 2021 Ford EcoSport delivers an intense aural affair unlike in other subcompact SUVs. You can connect your smartphone, thanks to advanced Bluetooth connectivity as well as two dedicated USB ports, conveniently found at the bottom of the center console, away from your line of sight.

Taking your work on the road, if you have to, is also easier while keeping devices for both the driver and passenger with two 12V sockets up front and in the back. 

Comfort + safety

There really is no place like home. Working at home has also introduced a whole new world of comfort in the workplace. What office will ever allow you to come to work in comfy slippers, a loose T-shirt, and shorts? People who experienced working from home the past year can certainly say that their domiciles have evolved into the perfect workstation with every convenience and comfort that they can afford. The 2021 Ford EcoSport knows this and offers an entire suite of convenience features that your comfort level extends out on the road.

Visibility on the 2021 Ford EcoSport is excellent thanks to a large greenhouse. Everything is within reach and the seats are comfortably bolstered to keep you nice and snug. The air can get a little stuffy at times so why not open the power retractable sunroof to let in more light? You can achieve the perfect driving position as well, thanks to the fully adjustable seats and steering wheel. More niceties that are often overlooked include an overhead console with sunglasses holder, sunvisors with vanity mirrors with a ticket strap so you will never lose your parking or toll tickets ever again, a spacious center console with padded armrest as well as a rear, retractable armrest for your passengers. You also have a cooled glove box and illuminated load compartment.

Safety doesn’t take a backseat in the 2021 Ford EcoSport with six airbags, anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, hill start and descent control, traction and stability control, rearview parking camera and rear park assist, and many more standard features. Nothing beats the safety and comfort of your own home, and now you can say the same for the Ford EcoSport.

Form and function

The 2021 Ford EcoSport is not only going to be your most useful WFH buddy because of its technological amenities, it is also one of the most performance-capable and versatile crossovers in the market. It also helps that all that is wrapped around a very attractive package.

With a ground clearance of 209mm and a wading depth of 500mm, you’re ready for anything this crazy pandemic world can throw at you. It rides on beautifully crafted 17-inch alloy wheels, giving you an even more imposing and sporty presence on the road. Despite the ride height, the loading is comfortably low thanks to the horizontally oriented rear hatch, allowing you to easily stow away heavy objects onto its spacious rear cargo floor. If you need more room, you can fold the rear seats down as well, perfect for your extended grocery runs. Thanks to the 2021 Ford EcoSport, you can fit more stuff in it, reducing the amount of time you have to spend outside.

Performance is a priority, and why would you settle for an underpowered subcompact SUV when the 2021 Ford EcoSport delivers? Two engine choices are available, the award-winning turbocharged one-liter three-cylinder EcoBoost engine that makes 123hp and 170Nm of torque, and a naturally aspirated 1.5-liter three-cylinder variant making 121hp and 150Nm of pulling power. Both engines have an all-new advanced six-speed automatic transmission that provides smooth and precise shifting and stellar fuel performance.
