SE 1.5 manual (R $ 73,990): 15-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, seven airbags, electronic stability and traction controls, anti-rollover system, ramp start assistant, Isofix, tire pressure monitor, Sync 3 multimedia system with 6.5-inch screen and compatibility with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, multifunction steering wheel, power windows, locks and mirrors and alarm.
Also pleased is the new multimedia center Sync 3, with screen of 8.3 inches, compatible with Apple Car Play and Adroid Auto. It is well positioned, has fast operation, comes with GPS and represents a huge leap compared to the previous EcoSport.
The top-of-the-line engine is also new, but not unprecedented. This is the same direct injection 2.0 that equips the Focus, capable of yielding 176hp. With this, EcoSport becomes the most powerful model in its segment. There’s more: a six-speed automatic transmission (real) has replaced the automated dual-clutch PowerShift, and has trades for butterflies. There is also a five-speed manual shift option.
