2020 Ford EcoSport


The 2020 Ford EcoSport is one of the smallest crossover SUVs in the market. The company has focused on designing that car for the city roads and equipped it with many prolific technologies and features. Let's discuss what you can expect to see in a 2020 Ford EcoSport. 


Exterior 

When it comes to the exterior, Ford has introduced minimum to no changes. In fact, the exterior is pretty much the same as we have seen so far. It comes with a tall hatchback structure complemented by short overhangs and a narrow body. The exterior styling remains classic in the 2020 Ford EcoSport across the trims.


Interior 

The 2020 Ford EcoSport focuses more on functionality instead of fashion in terms of interior. The interior has more than adequate space, and the rear row is especially spacious. The front seats offer optimum comfort to the driver and passenger. The base models come with cloth seats, whereas the leather trims are boasted with leather upholstery seats. Considering that the lineup has an overall high structure, drivers get an elevated driving position and better front visibility. Coming to the cargo space, you will get 20.9 cubic feet space in that region, which is quite decent. 


Engine 

The 2020 Ford EcoSport comes with a standard three-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 123 horsepower. Additionally, there is a four-cylinder engine with 166 horsepower, which is optional. The engines are integrated with six-speed automatic transmission and provide greater towing capacity. 


With the three-cylinder engine, the EcoSport can tow up to 1400 pounds, whereas the four-cylinder engine comes with a towing capacity of 2000 pounds. 


With a robust engine, the driver gets punchy and athletic steering while moving through the city traffic. Additionally, the Titanium model comes with softly sprung suspension, which offers adequate cushioning to the passengers against harsh road conditions. 


Considering the small size of the engine, the 2020 Ford EcoSport offers average fuel efficiency. The four-wheel-drive trims that come with 1.0-liter turbo offer 27 mg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. On the whole, the 2020 Ford EcoSport offers an average fuel efficiency of 28 mpg. 


Infotainment 

There are two sets of infotainment systems in the 2020 Ford EcoSport. The lower trims come with standard display featuring Bluetooth compatibility; however, there is no option to connect your smartphones. As for the higher trims, you will see an advanced Sync 3 System. It features an 8.0-inch touchscreen display, which comes with Apple CarPlay as well as Android Auto compatibility. 


Safety

The 2020 Ford EcoSport has been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and it received four stars. While the redesigned version lacks advanced driver-assist features, including automated emergency braking and adaptive cruise control, there are some useful safety features. The 2020 Ford EcoSport comes with safety options like rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, and blind-spot monitoring. 


With its new additions, the company has made the 2020 Ford EcoSport more functional and reliable for its users. Its compact design, spacious interior, and advanced features make Ecosport an ideal SUV for the city.
