Small SUVs are for those families who want some of the height of an SUV, but don’t want all the bulk that comes with it. However there are a fair few that fall short when it comes to delivering on enough space. The Ford Ecosport is one of those small SUVs that has more space than it looks, so works out to be practical - with more space than your average hatchback.
There’s an eight inch touchscreen in the Ecosport Titanium. Plug your phone into the USB port and you’ll connect with either Apple Carplay or Android Auto, depending on your phone. It gives you instant access to main apps like Spotify and Maps, and also utilises voice control so you can make calls and send texts without ever picking up your phone. It’s great that you can get this technology in cars at this price point - it’s the same tech mostly across the board now, even with some of the more expensive cars.
The boot door opens sideways however and it’s a little heavy. On a practical level, it also takes up more space to open the door, so if you’ve reversed into a park against a wall at the shopping centre, you most likely will not be able to open it up when you return with your shopping bags.
