Power Of One

Ford reintroduces the 1-litre Ecoboost engine to the EcoSport, but with a new six-speed gearbox, more sporty appeal and a sunroof. Is the S variant the EcoSport you should be looking to buy?

You’d have to argue hard to make anyone agree that the EcoSport isn’t fresh and exciting to look at – right from the first model launched in 2013 to the facelifted EcoSport from just six months back. With the EcoSport S, you’d definitely be making a losing argument.

Ford’s given the car a lot of the aesthetic upgrades owners have been going to the aftermarket for, most noticeably cutting out shiny bits. The grille is greyed out, with contrasting matte and gloss finishes which make the front end look more aggressive, yet polished. The headlights are (still) HID projectors and get dark detailing, which goes well on the new Canyon Ridge brown our test car was wearing. For us, the highlight of the S model has to be the 17-inch wheels finished in smoked hyper silver. It’s a sleeker snowflake pattern than what’s available on the Titanium+ variant but the colour and excellent finish take it to the next level of cool, almost appearing like dark chrome wheels from a distance.
