Ford EcoSport Active 2021, the small SUV goes into adventure mode

The small North American crossover has just launched the most adventurous version of all, the Ford EcoSport Active 2021, powered by the same EcoBoost engine that we already know and with a quite reasonable starting price, at least in Europe.
As we anticipated a few days ago, the new Ford EcoSport Active 2021 shows us an exterior appearance completely designed for fun off the asphalt, with new plastic fenders and widened fenders of the same material to allow the integration of larger tires with new 17-inch wheels.
In addition, the bodywork is always offered in two tones, with the roof and rearview mirrors in black and the rest painted in one of the six available tones, white, Solar Silver, Luxe Yellow, Desert Island Blue, Fantastic Red, or Matter Gray.
Inside, the changes are practically imperceptible except for the integration of leather and vinyl upholstery, decorated by an embroidered letter A on the backrests exclusive for this version. The rest is the well-known infotainment package with a standard six-speaker audio system.

Within the range of safety and driving assistance products, we find some new features included at the factory such as the rear parking sensors, the black roof bars with anchor points, and the tinted windows, although there are several optional accessories such as the hook detachable trailer and HD headlights.
Similarly, there are also some optional packages available, the first of which is Package X, which includes heated electronic folding mirrors, welcome lights, keyless entry and start, Sync3 multimedia system, navigator, integrated Wi-Fi access point, and B&O premium audio system with 10 speakers.
The second option is the security package, which adds front parking sensors, a rearview camera, a fatigue detector, automatic headlamp, light intensity control, and a blind-spot sensor.
Finally, the third package available in the winter package, designed for adventures in low-temperature areas, including heated seats and steering wheel as well as a heating system for the windshield that will prevent fogging in the middle of the journey.
Mechanically there is no surprise because under the hood of this small crossover we will find a three-cylinder, one-liter, turbo EcoBoost engine capable of delivering 125 hp, more than enough to propel this model through difficult terrain, supported by the raised suspension, the hardened steering, and the reinforced chassis so that we do not have problems in our way.
The new Ford EcoSport Active 2020 is already available in Europe and is offered in most markets with a starting price of 24,100 euros, which at the current exchange rate would be about 28618 dollars, although of course, we will have to wait to know its real price on this side of the world.
