Ford hops aboard the subcompact crossover craze with an all-new product for Canada: the 2018 EcoSport. Already sold in European markets for quite a while, the timing is right for the small SUV to arrive on our shores, setting itself apart with class-leading options including a premium B&O Play stereo and four-wheel drive.
"Fun, capable, and connected are three fantastic words to describe our entry into the mini utility segment," said Shannon White, Ford Canada product marketing manager.
You can't have fun without some kickin' tunes, and the EcoSport delivers via a 675-watt, nine-speaker plus subwoofer B&O (Bang & Olufsen) Play audio system (standard on the top-of-the-line Titanium trim). On a media drive in beautiful Newfoundland, Canada, we rocked out to crystal-clear tracks playing via the available SiriusXM satellite radio.
As with the rest of Ford's portfolio, infotainment is handled by the responsive and easy-to-use SYNC 3 hardware and software (SE and above).
