2021 Ford EcoSport Review - Specs, Details, & More

2021 Ford EcoSport Review - Specs, Details, & More

The 2021 Ford EcoSport proves that an SUV doesn't need to be huge to be a success. Designed in the subcompact crossover format that's ideal for daily city duties, the EcoSport combines solid power under the hood with an interior that feels much more upscale than the affordable pricing suggests. What are the highlights of the latest model, now available at our Winnipeg dealership? Read our 2021 Ford EcoSport review to find out.

 

Streamlined SUV Looks

 

Streamlined SUV Looks

 

Many small city cars give the impression of being cramped, unlovely vehicles that lack personality and flair, but the EcoSport is a firm exception to that rule. The exterior takes all the sleek lines of a larger SUV and scales them down into the subcompact format without losing impact. And with the small size comes a high degree of city-friendly handling, with the ability to dart in and out of small spaces or turn tight corners with zip and confidence.

 

City-Friendly Power Under the Hood

 

If you don't need an extravagantly gas-guzzling engine to power your daily driving, the entry-level EcoSport provides the perfect option. A 1.0L turbo I-3 makes a healthy 123 horsepower and 125lb-ft of torque, plenty enough for city traffic duties at an attractively lean fuel economy. But if you want to step up a level, there's an optional 2.0L naturally aspirated I4 which pushes the output up to 166 hp and 149lb-ft, while also adding all-wheel drive as standard. The EcoSport won't win any prizes on the race track, but for everyday driving it offers an ideal blend of hearty, dependable power and low running costs at the filling station.

 

Fuel Economy

 

Speaking of fuel economy, the EcoSport comes in at among the very lowest levels of fuel consumption for a gas-powered SUV, with official ratings as low as 8.7L / 100km in the city and an impressive 8.1L / 100km on the highway.

 

EcoSport Interior

 

Advanced Infotainment and Interior Technology

 

The EcoSport's level of interior tech is impressive for such a small vehicle. The available 8" infotainment touchscreen would be a generous option on many a much bigger car, while the included Ford Sync 3 software is widely regarded as one of the most advanced and user-friendly systems around today.

 

Smartphone integration is standard through Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, while if you prefer in-built navigation rather than relying on a device, the system can be upgraded to include it.

 

Active Safety and Driver Assist

And finally, the 2021 Ford EcoSport is equipped with a generous selection of active safety and driver assist systems, with key available highlights including:

 

  • Blind-spot monitoring.
  • Rear cross-traffic alerts.
  • Rear parking sensors.
  • Rear backup camera.

 

2021 Ford EcoSport Review: The Verdict

If you need a super-small SUV that's truly at home in the city but can also handle highway duties with ease, you need to take a look at the 2021 Ford EcoSport now available in Winnipeg. In an SUV market that's getting increasingly crowded, it's a small car with the character to stand out.
