Car Profiles - Ford Ecosport

FORD ECOSPORT

With the Juke being MIA, the Ecosport arrived first in which it created a niche of its own. The Fiesta derived SUV has high ground clearance and only available in FWD (you wouldn't be using it outside the city). An affordable option for an SUV without acting like one.

The Good: Priced well
The Bad: Not that much practical

Price Range: P775,000-P988,000
Our Rating: ***
