The Ford EcoSport will target city dwellers and young families when it launches into Australia's burgeoning sub-compact SUV market in December.

While Ford Brazil led the EcoSport's early development, its design and engineering has been a global task involving departments from across the world, including Ford Australia.
The local team was responsible for much of the vehicle's durability testing as well as the design of the front fascia, which explains its ‘baby Territory' looks.

The Ford EcoSport will be offered in Australia with the choice of two petrol engines, with prices tipped to start in the low-$20,000s to match incoming rivals like the Holden Trax, Peugeot 2008 and Renault Captur.
The showpiece will be the 92kW/170Nm 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged EcoBoost petrol engine. The pint-sized direct-injection powerplant consumes 5.3 litres per 100km when paired with a five-speed manual transmission according to overseas tests, although its lack of an automatic option will likely make it a niche choice in auto-obsessed Australia.
Ford says there will be no auto EcoBoost option in the short-term at least, and admits it is not currently working on a self-shifting 1.0-litre combination.
