The Ford EcoSport is Ford’s 5-door subcompact crossover SUV, originally developed under Ford's global product development in Brazil to service emerging markets in South America and Asia. Based on Ford’s global B2E platform that also underpins the popular Ford Fiesta, the now second-generation Ford EcoSport made its official debut in Malaysia back in 2014.
Imported as a CBU unit directly from Thailand, two trims levels are made available to the local market, the baseline Trend variant and the top-of-the-line Titanium with all the bells and whistle. Both variants are powered by the same 1.5 litre powertrain paired to a dual clutch automatic transmission.
Price starts from RM 92,888 and RM RM 103,888 when new for the Trend and Titanium variant respectively. Competition for the B segment crossover includes the likes of the Peugeot 2008, Renault Captur, Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-30 and the more recent Proton X50.
