Overview

The EcoSport has been a volume churner for Ford, impressing the audience of varied geographies. Launched back in January 2014 in the Philippines, the Ford EcoSport 2018 is a fresh offering from the manufacturer's stable. Compared to the outgoing model, the 2018 EcoSport is restyled at the front as well as at the rear. It still looks cute, though. Inside, it gets minor updates on the dash, centre console, and the instrument panel. The cabin is plusher than before. In the engine department, there isn't any change for the Philippine market. The 2018 EcoSport will continue to be powered by the 1.5-litre Ti-VCT four-cylinder engine. In the Philippines automobile market, the EcoSport lock horns with the Nissan Juke, Chevrolet Trax, and the Kia Soul. It is available in four variants: 1.5L Titanium AT, 1.5L Trend AT, 1.5L Trend MT and the 1.5L Ambiente MT.

 

Interior & Features

Inside the cabin, it is quite unorthodox. The all-black looks fascinating though, which gets decked up with silver accents. For the 2018 version, there are minor alterations done to the centre console, instrument panel, and the dashboard. Otherwise, it looks similar to the outgoing model. The dark shade somewhat makes it look a little more compact than it really is. However, its taller body and spacious cabin make it up for a comfortable ride for both, the driver as well as for the passengers. The headroom isn’t a matter of concern so is the legroom, EcoSport offers it generously. Additionally, its higher seating position gives you a sense of driving a full-size SUV. The SYNC3 infotainment system comes with a touchscreen that makes it easy to manage while you are on the go. It is integrated with facilities like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and GPS navigation. It can also help you control the climate inside the car when beating the sun’ scorching heat is the only worry for you. The entertainment system offers support for MP3/AUX-in/USB/iPod/AM/FM too. On the storage front, it gets multiple bottle holders and spaces at the console for your knicks knacks along with a cooled glovebox and around 20 storage compartments. It sports a generous max cargo space of 705-litre which is highly generous in the segment.

Exterior

The exteriors of Ford EcoSport has always been impressive and it is one of the hot reasons for its immense popularity in the international markets. With a few design tweaks on its exteriors, Ford has kept things familiar for the 2018 Ford EcoSport. It continues to feature an aggressive front fascia with a bigger front grille and associated horizontal bars, a small air dam for a bolder look and the fog lights which are more pronounced than before. The headlamps have gone a bit longer on the 2018 edition of the compact SUV. The squat bonnet design and prominent character lines across the body make it look even more attractive. At the rear, minor updates are noticeable too including a restyled bumper, tail lights, and the spare tyre carrier. Suspension duties are handled by independent McPherson Strut with coil spring at the front while at the rear it is equipped with semi-independent twist beam with gas and oil filled shock absorbers. The EcoSport Ambiente comes with 15-inch steel wheel with 195/65 R15 tyres while the higher variants, Trend, and Titanium run on 16-inch alloy wheels that are shod with 205/60 R16 section tyres. It gets a ground clearance of 200mm which is generous enough to keep away the rough patches, potholes, and bumps.  

Engine & Fuel Consumption

Powering the EcoSport is the 1.5-litre Ti-VCT, an in-line four-cylinder engine that churns out a max power of 110 PS at 6300 rpm and a peak torque of 142 Nm at 4500 rpm, mated to either 5-speed manual or 6-speed Powershift automatic transmission system. It returns an expected fuel economy of 12 to 14 kmpl. It gets EPAS (Electric power-assist steering) with  Pull-Drift Compensation for a stable ride and responsive character. The steering adjusts itself to being lighter in city traffic and a lot heavier at high speeds for better control.

Braking & Safety

The Ford EcoSport comes with a full suite of safety features that helps you and others in the car feel safe at all times. It gets features like traction control and electronic stability program (ESP) that grants excellent control in corners. It comes with dual front airbags, ABS (Anti-lock braking system), ESC (electronic stability control) and the HLA (Hill Launch Assist). The rear parking sensors are part of the EcoSport Titanium’s offering list while ISOFIX is consistent on all the variants. The structure is made up of high-strength boron steel, which being lightweight, is four times stronger than the usual high-strength steel.

    We got the Ford EcoSport when we found we were going to have our son. We bought this because of its high ground clearance. At the same time it was not too big for our city roads. We also liked the styling a lot. We got the orange color obviously. The other thing we liked a lot was the engine. Read More

    I bought the EcoSport an year back, and the ownership experience can be best termed as Ecstatic. Ford heavy built quality ensures that there are no loose ends and rattling parts. Looks are subjective, but I am in love with the way the Ford EcoSport has been designed. High ground clearance, and a macho-looking front end makes the EcoSport a Read More
