First-Time Driver? Hop In An EcoSport
First-Time Driver? Hop In An EcoSport
Posted on July 19, 2021
Buying a car for (or with) a first-time driver is a rite of passage. At Reliable Ford, we have helped many first-time drivers (and the people who love them) find the perfect vehicle that ticks all the boxes on everyone’s list.
With four models to choose from, the EcoSport gives you lots of options - including a budget-friendly price point, roomy interiors, fun features, and a variety of safety innovations that make everyone more confident!
Seating up to five with plenty of elbow room to spare, this spacious subcompact SUV didn’t skimp on style. Choose from a myriad of exterior colors, seating, and trim options that speak to your style.
The super-fun ambient lighting feature is a head-turner. Personalize your interior LED lighting by changing the colors as your mood changes. Seven color choices (red, blue, purple, orange, aqua, white, or yellow-green) and seven intensities mean your interior can speak volumes about your vibe. No matter what you choose, light emits from the front console cupholders, door handle, front-door map pockets, and front footwells.
Need some air? With a simple touch of a button, the available Power Moonroof provides fresh air, warm breezes, and all the Vitamin D you can stand.
You’ll need to stay connected! The 8-inch touchscreen provides smartphone-like swiping technology to your fingertips. Standard on the SE, SES, and Titanium models, you’ll never miss a thing with this technology front and center.
You’ll appreciate the unique rear swing gate that adds a twist to the cargo area. There’s plenty of room to pack all your most important things. Loading and unloading have never been more effortless.
The 2021 EcoSport comes equipped with a 6-month all-access audio trial of SiriusXM satellite radio. Get detailed weather, traffic, and sports information, including ski conditions and gas prices, with the 5-year subscription to SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link on new vehicles equipped with the optional Navigation System. With systems like these, you’ll never have any reason to be out of the loop!
Ford MyKey technology isn’t a teenager’s favorite, but MyKey is one way parents can compromise with first-time drivers. Teaching drivers to drive more responsibly, MyKey provides both programmable and non-programmable settings that promote safe driving habits like mandating safety belt use, limiting top speeds, and decreasing audio volume.
If jaw-dropping style is essential, ask one of our sales team members to show you the available SE Appearance Package, which includes:
- 6-way power driver’s seat
- Leather-wrapped steering wheel
- Orange instrument panel appliques
- Unique cloth seating with orange copper accents
- Overlander decals
Your safety has always been Ford’s top priority. With innovative driver-assistance technologies like our standard Ford Co-Pilot360 suite, confidence has never been higher. You’ll appreciate the safety features, which include:
- Blind Spot Information System. If a vehicle enters your blind spot, we alert you to its presence with a small light in the corresponding side-view mirror. Don’t take your eyes off the road ahead to turn and look behind you. Use your mirrors. Take your time. Let our system help. It’s that easy.
- Lane-Keeping System. If you veer out of your detected lane without using your turn indicator, our system alerts you to focus on the road ahead. If you don’t take corrective action, the system gently moves you back to the center of your lane. Should you leave your lane multiple times, we remind you a coffee break might be a good idea!
- Reverse Sensing System. It’s not just for delivery trucks anymore! While you’re in reverse, a series of beeps will alert you should you get too close to an object in your path. The closer you get, the faster the beeps. This system is a guarantee to help with those bumps and dings in the back bumper!
- Hill Start Assist. The system works automatically with the brakes to hold your vehicle in place for up to two seconds while you move your foot from the brakes to the accelerator. This simple system keeps your vehicle from rolling backward while you’re trying to go forward. Just one more way we help take the pressure (and the anxiety) off our drivers.
Be sure to ask one of our sales team members about all the safety features available on the model in which you’re most interested. Safety innovations have come a long way in just a few short years. We know you’ll feel better about all Ford provides to keep you (and the folks you love) safe.
