Ecosport Overview

The Ford EcoSport has been one of the most popular 5-seater crossovers in Malaysia, thanks to its value-for-money stature mated to a very beefy outlook. It was first introduced in the country back in August 2014 and was the Thailand-built model available at a starting price of RM 93,000. However, the car is presently priced a little over RM 98,000 on-the-road without insurance.

The EcoSport is a wonderful car, inside and out and hence, is highly preferred. In fact, it is not only a great car to be had in Malaysia, but in other Asia-Pacific regions too. This baby SUV is sure to give you a second thought if you are determined to buy your first car.

Ford Ecosport Interior & Features

When it comes to the interior, the Ford EcoSport packs a punch with a humongous list of features on offer. To start things off, smart keyless entry is added to the package along with electronic automatic air-conditioning. The seats are wrapped in leather upholstery, albeit only on the higher trim. However, leather wrapped gear knob is given as standard.

A multi-function steering wheel, with audio controls, is a part of the standard list. Apart from this, you will be impressed with the cooled glove box which comes in handy during hot summer days. As for the dashboard, there is a SYNC infotainment system which allows seamless connection with smartphones via Bluetooth or USB and facilitates phone calls too.

Ecosport Exterior

You will love the way the Ford EcoSport is stacked up as a complete package. It looks like a hatchback that has been on a strict dose of steroid. The hexagonal front grille and the chubby bumper makes it look muscular, but not without the presence of a high bonnet. The black plastic cladding extends all around the car along the lower skirt.

The wheel arches are body coloured but still very sharp. It rides on 16-inch alloy wheels that are wrapped in 205-section tyres. A sunroof is offered in the top-end trim too, which adds an advantage to the EcoSport over other cars in this price bracket.

Ford Ecosport Ride & Handling

There is no denying the fact that the Ford EcoSport is known for its handling prowess. Once you get behind the wheels, you will feel that the car is way too nimble and offers the combined driving experience of a small hatchback and a powerful SUV.

That said, it gets the MacPherson Strut suspension at the front and Twist Beam at the rear, something that seems to be a standard setup but offers good balance and stability. Plus, the tailgate-mounted spare wheel always comes in handy.

Ecosport Engine & Fuel Consumption

Under the hood, Ford offers a naturally-aspirated 1.5-litre Ti-VCT motor. This engine is good enough to churn out a maximum power of 110 PS at 6,300 rpm along with a peak torque of 142 Nm, which comes at 4,400 rpm.

Power is delivered to the wheels via a 6-speed automatic gearbox, something that the company calls the PowerShift. Though it might not be an outright powerful car, it still feels very nimble and frugal, thanks to the dual dry clutch setup on the engine. Plus, the 52 litres of fuel tank capacity turns out to be a big boon for long drives.

Ford Ecosport Braking & Safety

If you are looking at the Ford EcoSport to be one of the safest cars in the segment, you might feel a little letdown for its braking. For a price tag that is a lot higher than the conventional hatchback, the front ventilated discs and rear drum brakes-setup seem to be a little low. However, the addition of ABS, electronic brakeforce distribution and emergency brake assist makes up for the downhill.

Other important assistance features include traction control, electronic stability control, and hill start assist. As for the safety of the occupants, the car offers a total of seven airbags, covering everybody present inside the car in an event of a collision.

Ecosport Verdict

The Ford EcoSport does turn out to be a really attractive package for first-time buyers or the people who are looking to upgrade from a small hatchback. It is powerful for its size and packs in a lot of features. Moreover, the presence of seven airbags inside the cabin makes things really safe for the occupants, proving that it makes for a great buy for its price.

    I bought this car in a hurry. Though now I am pretty disappointed in lot many aspects. I feel majority of its subcompact SUV cars are way better than this car. The engine is somewhat underpowered. I am not at all satisfied with its rides. It appears to be somewhat harsh. They have hardly provided with much advanced safety features. Read More

    Ford has been releasing their all-new series Ford EcoSport. I wanted to purchase cars for a long time but wasn't sure as in which type to buy. I had a small family and wanted to take the car to office daily so getting a big car was not necessary and I didn't like spending much on the car either. I Read More
