Fun-loving and tech-savvy, the 2020 Ford EcoSport is a great way to get around.
What’s new for the 2020 Ford EcoSport?
For the 2020 model year, the EcoSport is sprucing up its tech offerings. Every trim model now comes standard with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. And the midgrade SE model now comes standard with the bigger, 8-inch touchscreen and Ford’s Sync 3 infotainment system.
Which 2020 Ford EcoSport should I buy?
That all depends on what you want out from your EcoSport experience. Choose from four trims: S, SE, SES, and Titanium. As you move up the trim levels, you’ll find more and more to like about the EcoSport.
If you’re looking for a great deal and an impressive standard lineup, the entry-level S will do just fine. This EcoSport comes standard with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and two USB ports to keep you connected. It’s also got height-adjustable front seats and 60/40-split rear seats, making the cabin highly versatile.
For a bit of a savvier ride, check out the SE. It adds Ford’s Sync 3 infotainment system, which comes pre-loaded with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone features. The SE also increases comfort with a power-adjustable driver’s seat and heated front seats.
With the SE and up, you can add the Convenience package, which includes blind-spot monitoring and a navigation system. The package’s 110-volt household-style power outlet comes in handy when your laptop is dying for a charge.
The EcoSport SES was designed for driving enthusiasts. It’s the only one of these crossovers to come standard with the upgraded turbocharged engine and sport-tuned suspension, which certainly create a livelier performance. The SES also looks sharp, with a rear spoiler and 17-inch wheels.
For a little something extra, check out the 2020 EcoSport Titanium. This top-trim model is stylish, inside and out. It sticks with the 17-inch wheels and adds chrome exterior trim and metallic bumper accents. Inside, leather upholstery and a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen Play premium audio system maximize your on-road experience. Then there’s the heated steering wheel, which makes the cabin just a bit cozier on winter mornings.
What are the 2020 Ford EcoSport mpg ratings?
This peppy Ford crossover combines family-style utility with commute-friendly EPA ratings. With front-wheel drive, the 2020 EcoSport earns 28 mpg combined (27 city/29 highway mpg). With all-wheel drive, those figures drop – but only slightly. The all-wheel-drive EcoSport earns 25 mpg combined (23/29 mpg).
Is the 2020 Ford EcoSport 4WD or AWD?
The EcoSport is a car-based crossover, which makes it both sporty and easy to handle in a tight spot. Because of its car-based chassis, it offers all-wheel drive. With this traction-boosting performance technology – which is optional for every trim level – the EcoBoost is better able to keep its footing on light trails and slick pavement.
