The Ford EcoSport is one of the ballooning number of supermini-sized crossovers. More than its rivals, it’s designed to look properly off-roader-y, what with its black lower cladding, faux skid plates and huge grille. Be not deceived: in substance it’s the standard fare for the class, with front-drive only, and Fiesta-type mechanicals. Still, the high ground clearance and all-season tyres should get you up most tracks, and all that bash-plating will ward off urban carelessness.
A recent facelift is to thank for the improvement in interior quality, better handling (down to stiffer anti-roll bars and a 10mm suspension drop), and the fact the faux spare-wheel holder that was once stuck to the boot is now a best option rather than standard.
