After a series of images revealed last month, Ford released an official statement which gives details of the new EcoSport, the model that the US car manufacturer wants to be the best model in the small SUV segment.
Ford EcoSport has gone through some changes, especially regarding the suspension and the steering to be well received by European customers. Ford EcoSport is 4.24 meters long, 1.69 meters high and has a trunk with a volume ranging between 322 and 705 liters.
The Ford EcoSport standard equipment will include ESP, six airbags and a SYNC multimedia system. The EcoSport will be the third model that will use the SYNC technology, along with Fiesta and B-Max.
The Ford EcoSport SUV will be powered by the 1.0-liter Ecoboost engine, with 125 HP and another 1.5 liter petrol engine with 110 HP. For those who prefer diesel, Ford will offer a 1.5-liter engine and 90 HP, which Ford officials say will offer the best consumer for the small SUV segment.
The Ford EcoSport SUV will be launched later this year, and will join a SUV range that will include the new generation of Ford Kuga.
