Why Lease A Ford EcoSport With Vanarama?
Benefits Of A Ford EcoSport LeaseThe world’s going mad for small SUVs – and the industry and public alike have been wowed by Ford’s latest offering, the Puma. But if that’s too large for you, then this is Ford’s other, even smaller SUV – the EcoSport.Based on the same mechanical bits as Britain’s best-selling car, the Fiesta, it’s a pint-sized, high-riding machine designed to zip around town. Ford says it’ll give you the practical advantages of an SUV but only take up the space of a supermini. It comes with a strong 1.0-liltre petrol engine and a choice of well-equipped trim levels to suit different budgets.
What’s The Ford EcoSport Cabin Like?
How Does The Ford EcoSport Drive?
The EcoSport is only a little car – so some concessions for practicality are to be expected. But that said, there’s less room inside that you’ll find in a lot of its rivals. Up-front space is fine, but rear-seat passengers will want more legroom. Headroom isn’t too bad but, although there are 3 rear seatbelts, you wouldn’t realistically want more than 2 adults in the back as the middle seat is tiny.
At 355 litres, the boot is on the small side too – and the practicality isn’t helped by a side-opening tailgate, hinged at the left. You can fold the rear seats down if you need extra space, but doing so leaves a step between seatback and boot floor.
Rivals like the Renault Captur have both more space and more flexibility, with seats that slide forward and back to maximise boot space or legroom. There are at least a few in-cabin storage spots, at least up front, with big door pockets, a reasonable glovebox and a deep-but-narrow space under the centre armrest.
Leasing deals for the EcoSport don’t look too pricey, but they’re not much lower than the slightly larger but newer and more impressive Ford Puma. Other rivals are more affordable still, including the very talented Skoda Kamiq.
Fuel costs from the 125hp engine shouldn’t be too high. It has a claimed mpg of 47.9 – and the 140hp version promises up to 47.1mpg. However, the Puma will give you more power for less fuel, and other rivals are more frugal too.

The Ford EcoSport Vs Competitors
On its own merits, the EcoSport has some appeal, most notably its compact size. But in a market packed with great small SUVs, there are better choices.
No, all Ford EcoSports are front-wheel drive only.
The EcoSport is at its best around town. Its ride quality isn’t the best, so there are other rivals we’d recommend if you’re doing longer journeys.
The EcoSport was tested by independent safety organisation Euro NCAP in 2013 and scored 4 out of 5 stars. Most manufacturers would want the maximum 5 stars and standards have moved on since 2013. This means that there are technically safer rival cars on the market.
All models of the EcoSport come with an automatic emergency braking system called Pre-Collision Assist, which will apply the brakes if you don’t respond to an impending collision.
The latest EcoSport does not come with a spare wheel.
