Ford PH to launch EcoSport mini-SUV on January 30
Ford Group Philippines will launch its B-segment SUV contender, the sharply-penned EcoSport on January 30. Previously shown at the New Delhi and Bangkok Motor Shows, the new EcoSport is based on the well-regarded Fiesta platform.
The new car is expected to carry a 1.5-liter gasoline engine with 107hp. Ford says that it will be spacious for five adults and their gear, and that it will feature high driving position, rugged capability and superior fuel economy. It can wade through 550mm of water, making it similar in this respect to vehicles such as the Innova and Fortuner. Top line models may feature keyless entry via transponder, Ford Sync entertainment system, and hill-launch assist.
Ford has launched an interactive campaign for the EcoSport, where a participant can win a 60-day drive of the new car. The winner will be announced at the Manila International Auto Show on April 3, 2014.
