Words: Paddy McCann
If you want to get a top tier view of the road ahead without the fuel penalty and potential parking difficulties of a larger SUV, the Ford Ecosport could be just the vehicle you have been looking for. Right now at City Ford Sydney, it is available for a limited time at just 1.9% finance!*
Built on the award winning Ford Fiesta platform, the Ford Ecosport is an exciting car to own because of the high driving position packed into the Fiesta’s diminutive footprint for easy manoeuvring and parking around Sydney. Spacious and comfortable up front, the Ecosport's raised eyeline increases your view of the road ahead to help you spot trouble before it escalates to a dangerous situation for you and your passengers. For example, being able to respond to a potential obstruction ahead before it becomes an issue is much better than trying to react in a split second after the car ahead slams on their brakes for no apparent reason.
That said, if the worst does happen, feel safe in the knowledge that all Ford Ecosport models share a 4 star ANCAP safety rating in which they achieved a 93% safety rating for adult passenger safety (by comparison, the BMW i3 achieved 10 pts less with 83% for adult safety^)
Of course, the Ecosport Range is not just about safety. These vehicles offer impressive technology and equipment levels standard (such as Ford Sync) and increasingly luxurious options such as sumptuous leather seats and enhanced trim to be found as you move up the range to the highest spec Ford Ecosport Titanium.
While the build quality of the Ford Ecosport is as impressive as the equipment list, it is currently the price which is drawing all the attention! The Ford Ecosport is presently being offered at just 1.9% and is available to drive away today from City Ford Sydney from just $19,990 for the Ambiente, $21,490 drive away for the Trend and for just $4000 more, you get all the added comfort, luxury and status of the Ford Ecosport Titanium from the very last special priced 2014 plate stock. If you prefer a 2015 plated vehicle, it’s just $1000 more ($26,990) and with 1.9% finance, owning a brand new car has rarely been this affordable.
