Ford Ecosport Leasing
Ford’s little EcoSport SUV is good looking, fashionable and practical.
This model uses tried and tested Fiesta mechanicals to offer Ford EcoSport lease drivers a front-wheel drive car with added ride height and chunky good looks. Now it's got a pokier 1.0 EcoBoost 140PS petrol engine at the top of the range, while more recent versions also boast a smarter interior, cleaner engines and more equipment. It all sounds quite promising.
Why Would You Want One?
The Ford EcoSport was a late arrival in the small Crossover class but it brings the segment something different in a cute but rugged package that target buyers will probably like. Compromises have been made with its approach but if you’re city-bound but adventurous at heart, there’ll be plenty to like here. Ford EcoSport finance deals can be tempting too.
Give Me the Key Details...
The EcoSport was first launched in 2014 but much has been done to improve the car since then. Tweaks to the suspension have improved the ride plus there's greater refinement, a smarter cabin and the option to do without the rear-mounted spare wheel. More recently, a pokier 140PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine has been added in at the top of the tange. Otherwise though, this car is much as before, with chunky looks that offer up a bit of Amazonian attitude, even if in truth, this car is more CBeebies than SAS in its take on hostile streetlife.
Your Ford EcoSport lease quote will be based around the choice you make from an engine line-up that offers a choice of four engines, three petrol units and one diesel. Most buyers in search of a Ford EcoSport personal lease opt for the brand’s innovative 125PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, also available with 140PS. Other options include a 1.5-litre diesel with 95PS and an older 112PS 1.5 Ti-VCT petrol unit.
Inside in this current model, there's a restyled instrument cluster with a chrome surround, a light dimming function, plus there are chrome tips for the window switches and the handbrake lever's easier to get at. You’ll find the back of an EcoSport a surprisingly pleasant place to be thanks not only to the high, airy roofline but also to the fact that the rear seats are set slightly above those in the front for a better view out. There’s a 346-litre boot.
The Bottom Line
There’s no reason why the EcoSport shouldn’t continue to do pretty well for Ford in the small SUV segment. Ride and refinement are reasonable and this little Crossover is very well equipped across the board, its SYNC connectivity AppLink system being particularly good. All these reasons will combine with the small Crossover segment’s current popularity to ensure that Ford will probably sell as many of these as they can import. It is, as ever, a case of giving the market what it wants.
