What Does Kelley Blue Book Like About the New Ford EcoSport?

If you know the new Ford EcoSport, then you know it as the subcompact crossover with all an active Worcester urbanite or all-around Ford enthusiast from Shrewsbury MA could hope to find in a new SUV. But what do the industry's prime research and valuation experts think? Check out a recent review with us here at Sunnyside Ford in Holden!

Among other features, KBB appreciated Ford EcoSport for its responsive suspension and steering. They make the ride, the reviewer claimed, "downright fun" and deliver "one of the best-handling subcompacts on the market." We can see why. After all, it's suspension is a combination of independent MacPherson strut front and fully independent multilink rear, coming sport-tuned in SES, and its electric power-assisted steering can detect driving conditions and adjust steering effort accordingly.

Plenty of other features keep Ford EcoSport just as capable as well. For one, Torque Vectoring Control comes standard, and with it, precision cornering through the streets of Leominster becomes a lot easier. Secondly, all-wheel drive is optional in S, SE, and Titanium trims and standard with the 166-horsepower, 2.0-liter Ti-VCT engine in the SES trim. That's dependability down bad Rutland MA roads and through worse weather that competitors like Toyota C-HR and Nissan Kicks can't offer.

Of course, Ford EcoSport is just as safe as it is a blast to drive. That's thanks to passive ride-leveling features such as AdvanceTrac with RSC (roll stability control), the incline-managing abilities of hill start assist, and improved situational awareness in West Boylston traffic from a blind spot information system, cross-traffic alert, a reverse sensing system, and a rear-view camera. But these aren't all a Ford SUV can bring to your drive.
