SAFETY

The most important features you’ll never use (hopefully)


There are many reasons to feel safer in the Ford EcoSport. It offers you features that help protect you, and others that help prevent the need for protection in the first place. And that adds up to invaluable peace of mind – wherever you go, in whatever conditions.

Traction control and ESC

The EcoSport’s combination of traction control and an Electronic Stability Control helps keep you connected to the road and in control, especially around corners and when overtaking. Together, they help reduce the chances of wheel spin, and over- or under-steering in corners.

Airbags all-round

Get 360 degrees of confidence. With seven airbags you’ll feel protected from every side. These include driver and front passenger airbags, driver’s knee airbag, front side thorax airbags and side curtain airbags.

High-strength boron steel

Used in the space program, boron steel is four times stronger than normal high strength steel, yet incredibly lightweight. Injected into the EcoSport’s doors, it creates a super high strength safety cell designed to help keep you protected in an impact.

ABS and EBD

When you have to stop quickly, you want to be sure you stop properly. In an emergency, ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) and EBD (Electronic Brake Force Distribution) help prevent the wheels locking and sliding, giving you a greater sense of stability and control.
