The most prominent feature which grabs attention inside the cabin is the floating 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system. It is bright and intuitive and comes loaded with all the connectivity features. Featuring Ford’s SYNC3, the system is quick, easy to operate and pretty smooth as well.
In terms of equipment, the EcoSport comes loaded with climate control, height adjustable driver’s seat, electric mirrors, tyre pressure monitoring system, projector headlamps with daytime running LEDs, six airbags and ABS, and ambient footwell lighting. But features like cruise control, side airbags, rain sensing wipers, ISOFIX, automatic headlamps, Emergency Assist and a rearview camera are only available in the top-of-the-line Titanium+ and S trim. And sunroof is offered only on the S variant.
While the overall quality is on par with what you’d expect in a car in this price point, it needs to be pointed out that the instrument cluster looks dated. The simple layout has a tachometer and speedometer on either side, but the small display screen – which reads out information such as TPMS, trip metre, gearshift indicator, average fuel economy and digital speedo – looks like it’s straight out of a car from the 90s.
