The Ambiente petrol derivative now comes with a six-speed automatic transmission bringing the number of EcoSport models to seven.
In terms of power, the Ambiente makes use of a 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine with 91 kW of power.
“The compact SUV category grew substantially with the maiden launch of the EcoSport in South Africa in 2013, and the model has dominated this class ever since,” says Doreen Mashinini, General Manager Marketing at FMCSA.
Apart from that, the Trend and Titanium models now get Ford’s Collision Mitigation System, Cruise control with an adaptive speed limiter (for the Trend models).
The Titanium trim gains front parking sensors to complement the rear sensors that are standard across the range.
Multimedia functionality features include Ford’s SYNC® with Bluetooth and Voice Control, as well as two USB ports, six speakers and a 4.2-inch screen.
The Trend models come with the SYNC® infotainment system with a 6.5-inch colour touchscreen, while the Titanium’s SYNC®3 features an 8-inch display as well as embedded turn-by-turn navigation.
Safety comes courtesy of ABS brakes, Electronic Stability Control with Traction Control, as well as Roll Stability Control.
