This is the updated version of Ford’s troubled Ecosport, a compact SUV that was given a rather rough time when first reviewed by us back in 2013.
We’ve already sampled the 2018 model in Portugal, but now we’re putting it under the microscope on home turf for the first time.
The Ecosport remains a tough car to recommend. Sure, it’s relatively spacious and well equipped, but so is a Volkswagen Polo, which not only costs more than £1500 less on a like-for-like basis but also offers a far better drive – if a little less power.
If you’re really set on the idea of a compact SUV, Seat’s class-leading Arona is the current go-to model, owing to its composed ride and more attractive looks. And even if you’re absolutely adamant you want a small, high-riding Ford, it's probably worth waiting for the forthcoming Fiesta Active, which will arrive later this year.
