Over the years, Filipinos have developed a penchant for SUVs for a lot of reasons – versatility, capability, and space. Not to mention that modern-day SUVs have been equipped with technological features that enable a more interactive and safer driving experience.
Since it was first launched in the Philippines in 2014, the Ford EcoSport has become a familiar sight on city streets across the country, having gained wide appeal for its unmistakable combination of agility, affordability, and fuel efficiency of a compact car with ground clearance, flexibility, and spaciousness of an SUV.
This year, Ford is bringing the Ford EcoSport closer to Filipino drivers, particularly value-seeking customers who are looking to have an SUV as their first vehicle or those who are planning to upgrade from a sedan to an SUV. Here are seven reasons why the Ford EcoSport will give you the most bang for your buck:
