There are many reasons to feel safer in the Ford EcoSport. It offers you features that help protect you, and others that help prevent the need for protection in the first place. And that adds up to invaluable peace of mind – wherever you go, in whatever conditions.
In addition to the driver and passenger front airbags, driver knee airbag¹, side airbags provide thorax protection and are designed to direct the occupant away from the impact area. They’re also able to raise the arm of the occupant providing better space between them and the intruding structure. Curtain airbags provide maximum coverage and headrests offer protection from whiplash. With front and rear seatbelt pre-tensioners and load limiters, plus seatbelt minders, EcoSport helps puts your safety first.
If it detects any of your tyres starting to lose pressure during your journey, the Tyre Pressure Monitoring System warns you by lighting up an icon on the instrument panel.
Electronic Stability Control constantly monitors your vehicle’s progress. It senses when a vehicle is losing grip and automatically applies a braking pulse to individual wheels, helping to stabilise it. Using advanced sensors from the anti-lock braking and Traction Control System it monitors the behavior of the vehicle.
An advanced Traction Control System eliminates excessive wheelspin and gives you the best possible grip, performance and stability, just when you need it most. The system constantly monitors and adjusts the power delivered to the vehicle’s individual wheels ensuring maximum contact and grip when accelerating.
Stable, responsive steering is the mark of a high-quality drive, and the EcoSport doesn’t disappoint. Electric power-assist steering is designed to adjust to feel ‘lighter’ in slow traffic and ‘heavier’ at higher speeds for better control. At the same time, it can adapt to changing road and weather conditions, compensating for factors like cross-winds and potholes. Best of all, it only comes to your assistance when it’s needed, saving you fuel as you drive.
The EcoSport is designed to help keep young children safe and secure on every journey. It comes with rear ISOFIX child seat attachment points, so you can easily fit two child seats.
