This car broke down just over a year after I bought it brand new, the engine blew, took 3-4month to get it back w/new engine and it's been back to the shop 3 times since then! Extremely unhappy with the dealership AND with Ford. Coming from a person who's family has ONLY bought Ford automobiles, I will never get another Ford.

I'ts made in India!

It is small and if its use is for one or two people, like my self, all is good. fun to drive, easy to park. Now here is the problem, here in the US Ford has decided we do not get a spare tire except on base model and this is BAD evan with Road Side or AAA they can't change what you don't have and its a stranding or a tow then a loner or rental will you wait for a tire, FOR DAYS and you better hope it's not a weekend

Awesome SUV

Love the handling, comfortable, easy on gas, fun to drive. Excellent reviews from people who have ridden with me. My lease runs out next year and I plan on purchasing it.

2018 Ford EcoSport Overview

The 2018 Ford Ecosport is an all-new subcompact SUV that seats five passengers.

Four trim choices will be available: S, SE, SES and Titanium, with the SES designated as the "sporty" trim with unique styling elements. All models will feature a swing gate instead of a traditional upward opening hatch, hinged on the left side to allow for easier curb loading. Ten exterior color choices will be available.

Inside, the EcoSport features a unique floating display panel front and center to house the 8-inch touchscreen that uses Ford's latest Sync 3 multimedia system, standard on the Titanium models. Lesser trims get either a 4-inch or 6-inch screen mounted in the same location with Sync 3 an option. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto also will be offered, as will the FordPass app that allows connection and management of the car's systems via a smartphone. Audio supplier Harman has teamed up with B&O to offer B&O Play, standard on the Titanium model, a 675-watt premium audio system featuring 10 speakers, including a subwoofer.

The interior is also designed for versatility, with as many as 30 cubbies, hooks and storage bins throughout the cabin. The second-row seats fold and stow for increased cargo room, and combine with a false floor board in the cargo area to create a flat area for larger items.
The SES trim also features some special interior appointments, with sport seats and unique copper colored trim pieces to spice things up. The top trims feature two USB ports low in the console for charging personal electronics along with a 12-volt socket. Optional is a 110-volt household outlet, plus a second 12-volt socket for the backseat.

Under the Hood
Two engine choices will be available. First is a turbocharged three-cylinder EcoBoost engine like the one found in the Ford Focus and Fiesta, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission; it sends power to the front wheels only. The optional engine is a larger non-turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that will include all-wheel drive as standard.

The 2.0-liter will be standard equipment on the SES model, in keeping with that trim's sportier demeanor, but the top Titanium can be had in either three-cylinder or four-cylinder guise. Ford did not provide horsepower or fuel economy ratings for the powertrains, and likely will not until closer to the car's on-sale date, more than a year away.
