Because the model launched a year ago was a complete failure, Ford updated the EcoSport mini SUV so it can attract more customers. Not so much have changed, as the crossover keeps with the same design, concentrating more on trim levels and engines.

2015 EcoSport Exterior

On the outside, the most notable change is that now customers can specify the EcoSport without a rear-mounted spare wheel. Ford EcoSport models specified without the rear-mounted spare wheel feature a tyre mobility kit as standard, while the rear swing-gate design for those vehicles also has been revised to allow easier access to the bootspace with partial opening. All models now feature a distinctive EcoSport badge on the rear.

2015 Ford EcoSport Interior

Interior improvements include standard partial leather seats for Titanium models, privacy glass is available for all EcoSport trim levels and tere is additional chrome detailing. There is also a Winter Pack, featuring heated windscreen, heated mirrors and heated front seats. The Winter Pack also adds rear seat ventilation at floor level to improve comfort for rear passengers in cold weather.

The restyled interior has a charcoal black lower instrument panel, centre console and door boards. The instrument cluster now features a light dimming function and chrome-surround rings to match the electric window switches.

All EcoSport models are equipped with Ford’s SYNC voice-controlled connectivity system feature a 4-inch colour display in the centre console.

Ford EcoSport Performance

EcoSport driving dynamics have been improved with revisions to the springs, dampers, rear torsion beam, Electronic Stability Programme, and Electronic Power Assisted Steering settings. A 10mm reduction in ride height lowers the EcoSport’s centre of gravity for improved handling.

The 1.5-litre TDCi also now offers 95 hp, a 5 hp improvement, and delivers 64.2 mpg and 115 g/km CO2. The 125 hp 1.0-litre EcoBoost delivers 52.3 mpg and 125g/km CO2, while the 1.5-litre Ti-VCT engine delivers 44.8 mpg and 149 g/km CO2. All engines now meet Euro 6 emissions standards.

Prices for the enhanced EcoSport start from £14,245.
