In this article we discuss about the 2020 Ford Ecosport Pros and Cons.
The EcoSport is Ford’s top-selling car in the indian market and it is also my personal favorite in the compact SUV segment. It does come with these shortcomings and in today’s article I’m going to tell you four pros and four cons of the Ford EcoSport. But before we get started please follow us on our social media handles.
Ford Ecosport Pros and Cons
Below are the Pros of the Ford Ecosport
1) Appealing and Sporty Looks
I personally believe that the EcoSport is the best looking compact SUV in the segment and with the Titanium Edition it just looks mind-blowing especially with those 17-inch wheels. The EcoSport is thus a very attractive yet a sporty looking car and thankfully they have kept the spare wheel on the rear tailgate which adds to the rugged look of this car.
2) Engine Options
Ford is offering two engine options on the EcoSport, there’s the fantastic 1.5 diesel, the new 1.5 liter dragon petrol. Both these engines offer very good performance there is good amount of drivability on offer and you can have a lot of fun no matter which Ecosport variant you are driving.
3) Ride and Handling
That brings me to the next pro of this vehicle which is the handling; the steering offers a ton of feedback, body roll is very well contained. The big tires also offer a lot of grip, it also comes with traction control system which is a boon around the corners.
4) Feature Loaded
The EcoSport is loaded with a ton of features, Ford has given everything to it and some more. It gets projector headlights with LED DRLs, big wheels, keyless go, push button start, a fantastic infotainment system, reverse parking camera reverse parking sensors. It also gets auto dimming inside rear view mirror, tire pressure monitoring system, there’s also six airbags on offer and I mean the list is just endless.
Below are the Cons of the Ford Ecosport
1) Lack of rear seat space
However the EcoSport has its fair share of corns and the biggest gripe with this car is the lack of the rear seat space compared to its rivals. You just cannot compare it in terms of interior room because it’s very much lacking.
2) No Diesel Automatic
While the segment is now offering a diesel automatic and Ford has been ahead of the curve by offering a petrol automatic. Since a long time now the EcoSport diesel doesn’t get an automatic transmission which is slightly disappointing.
3) Sideways Opening Boot
The EcoSport is the only car in its segment whose boot opens sideways which is a big hitch because that hinders practicality it also takes a lot more effort to open the boot.
4) Outdated instrument Cluster
Finding a fourth con for the EcoSport might be slightly difficult and yes I’m gonna nitpick here,. But honestly that’s what I think all the time while driving and that is the instrument cluster, it just looks too basic on a compact SUV which looks so flashy.
