A remarkable ground clearance of 200 mm and 550 mm water wading pretty much allow EcoSport to overcome uneven roads with ease. Most important thing here is that driver and passengers will not even feel any of this bumping. This is due to the highly efficient shock absorbing suspensions that absorb and get rid of such otherwise fatal forces while driving. Cities are known for their noisy conditions, but while riding EcoSport driver will not be perturbed by such noises. One of the remarkable features of Ford EcoSport is the Hill Launch Assist that is available in versions with automatic transmission gearbox. This feature will enhance driving experience while paving though hilly areas. Hill Launch Assist holds the brake for few seconds after the foot is taken off, giving that extra time to continue without rolling. This utility vehicle also comes with a higher seating arrangement to provide a wider view while driving.

It also comes with a cooled glove box that keeps drinks or stored food cool. Twenty customised storage spaces of this vehicle allow to neatly pack things away.

It also comes with 1.5 TiVCT petrol and 1.5 litre TDCi diesel engines delivering excellent mileage of up to 22.67 kmpl (diesel). EcoSport boasts of EPAS (with Pull-Drift Compensation) that ensures a stable and responsive steering for a better driving experience. Electric power-assist steering adjusts to provide greater control by adapting to road and weather conditions. A six-speed PowerShift automatic transmission is another great add-on to enhance driving pleasure.

This utility vehicle comes with features like Traction control and ESP (Electronic Stability Program), six airbags, High-strength boron steel in the doors, rear parking sensors and ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) and EBD (Electronic Brake Force Distribution) to ensure safety from road hazards. Thus, if one goes through such a wish-list, the driving experience is bound to heighten. This leads us to the conclusion that Ford EcoSport is a charm to cast on any road conditions without breaking a sweat. It is one of the best sports utility vehicles (SUV) to ride from dawn till dusk, indulge in sweet sleeps and then shun the bed to get ready for yet another remarkable experience.
