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

Even the entry-level Zetec spec comes with a long list of standard equipment, including a DAB radio, two USB sockets, 16in alloy wheels, air-con, electric front and rear windows and a leather steering wheel and gearlever.

The least powerful 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine is okay, but the next version up more flexible and nicer to live with.
