THE RECORD FEBRUARY 12 - 2014
All-new EcoSport arriving soon Article supplied by Avon City Ford
The all-new Ford EcoSport displays all the best qualities of a modern SUV — it’s smart, supports you and your family when driving (both from a safety and comfort perspective) and it is prepared to deal with any situation you come across during your day, whether a tricky Christchurch road or the impromptu transportation of items. Behind the scenes of the Ecosport, the 1.5 litre petrol engine maintains its performance — 82kW at 6,300rpm, while being economical — 6.5L per 100km. It is said to have ‘the fuel efficiency of a manual with the ease of an automatic’ — that is the beauty of the 6-speed Ford Powershift automatic transmission. The EcoSport offers a 5 star ANCAP safety rating, packed with features such as traction control and dynamic stability control, seven air bags in total, a boron steel safety cell, rear parking sensors and ABS. The EcoSport does everything modern technology has given us to keep drivers and their families safe. Moving to the design features, you can get excited about the 550mm wading capacity and 200mm ground clearance which is perfect for anything Christchurch roads attempt to throw at you. The back seats fold down with ease to provide an expanded boot capacity, changing from 362 litres to 705 litres. Storage from the cooled glovebox to under the front passenger seat, map pockets and more, you’ll be able to keep tidy and remain comfortable while travelling with your whole family.
When you’re sitting inside the EcoSport you’ll be able to enjoy the Ford SYNC technology to control your mobile or mp3 player (maintaining control of your driving safely), and you will notice the cabin is actually quieter due to improved glass seals, double sealed doors and an acoustic headliner. This reduction of distracting noise and focus on easily accessible controls allows you to not only drive safely on a regular basis, but to take pleasure in being in your vehicle at the same time, making daily school trips and negotiating the city streets a lot more appealing. The EcoSport is due to arrive at Avon City Ford in April.
