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

Trim: ST-Line

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.

Engine: 1.0 EcoBoost 125

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.
