More power! Every review bashes the underpowered 1.0 EcoBoost. I have the 1.0L, it's not terrible and I average better fuel economy than the window sticker.
In the US, we get the 123HP version. Why not the 140 HP version? Comparing similar models, The Chevy Trax, Honda HRV, Buick Encore all have 140HP engines.
I know it would add costs, but also why not the 1.5L EcoBoost as the upscale engine choice? Having 179HP 1.5 EcoBoost would pit the Ecosport right in the top for performance vs competition of the Hyundai Kona and Jeep Renegade.
Also Ford could improve on the safety features of the Ecosport. It gets bad reviews because of lack of safety stuff like emergency braking, and lane keep assist, and adaptive cruise.
I own a 2019 Ford Ecosport Titanium. I owned a 2014 Ford Fiesta. I thought my Fiesta had fantastic headlights on it. Seemed very bright. I'm disappointed with lighting quality of this Ecosport. I'm already looking at installing aftermarket HID or LED headlights.
