Bring Along Your Own Comfort

You want adventure, but you also want comfort, so you are going to need space for yourself and all the things you need to bring along. The 2021 EcoSport has plenty of space for you with 42.9 inches of front-row legroom and 36.7 inches in the second row. These dimensions allow you to stretch out and rest your legs between hikes.

For your things, there is 20.9 cubic feet behind the second row. If you need more room for the fancy folding bike you got yourself, access a maximum cargo volume of 50 cubic feet by folding down the second-row 60/40 flip-up and split-fold-flat seats.

Get Up and Go

Whether you are driving up mountains or are on a road trip across America’s prairies, the EcoSport’s available Intelligent 4WD (4-wheel drive) has got you covered. This system provides added traction when you need it and comes with the optional 2.0L Ti-VCT I-4 engine. This means nothing will derail your adventure.

Speaking of performance, the EcoSport sports a 13.8-gallon fuel tank with an EPA-estimated 27 city/29 highway MPG fuel-economy rating. With those statistics in mind, imagine how far you can go without pulling into a rest stop, unless you want snacks, of course.

When it comes to power, the 2021 EcoSport generates up to 166 horsepower and 149 lb-ft of torque, which provide you with a max towing capacity of 2,000 pounds when properly equipped. So, if you want to bring your jet skis, you can.

Stay Connected

Life does not stop when you are exploring the wilderness, so it is important to still be connected when you are off the grid. Have no worries, though; the 2021 EcoSport comes standard with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot, which can connect up to 10 devices.

This means even when you are winding your way to Seneca Lake State Park for a day on the water, you can still check your stocks, the news, and the weather.

On your way, you can use the available SYNC® 3 infotainment system and 8-inch touchscreen to connect to Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™. You can play your favorite road trip playlists or catch up on those podcasts you have been meaning to listen to. With its responsive voice-activated technology, you do not have to take your hands off the steering wheel to control what you are listening to.
