Review

The Ford Ecosport’s chunky looks are easy to fall for, but it’s a disappointing car to drive and is stingy with space

get the best price

The range-topping ST-Line gets sports suspension and various sports-inspired styling. However, it's expensive, so we think Zetec is actually the trim to go for.

Of the engines available at the moment, we’d suggest you look to this 124bhp 1.0-litre turbo petrol. It's free-revving, flexible and provides good performance.
