What used Ford Ecosport hatchback will I get for my budget?
To join the Ecosport club you’ll need around £8000, at the time of writing. This will buy you a 2014 car with an average mileage for the year and a full service history, bought from an independent dealer or a trader. Up the money to between £9000 and £11,000 and you’ll net a good 2015 car that satisfies the same criteria, while £12,000 to £15,000 will find good 2016 and even 2017 cars.
How much does it cost to run a Ford Ecosport hatchback?
The latest post-facelift version of the 1.5 TDCi diesel is the most economical engine, with a claimed average fuel consumption figure of 64.2mpg. While that sounds good, many small cars of Ecosport size match or better that figure. Choose one of the 1.0 Ecoboost engines and the best-performing can claim an average figure of 52.3mpg.
Cars registered before the tax changes of April 2017 will be relatively cheap in VED road tax, while those registered after will all be charged at the new unified rate currently £140 per annum.
A Ford service plan for the Ecosport includes three services over three years and 60,000 miles, as well as the Ford Assistance breakdown plan. Payments can be budgeted by direct debit.
