We traded in our Fiesta after owning it for 5 years and having totally carefree motoring in that time.
We decided to go for the Ecosport as it was more comfortable, roomier, and had more toys on it, although still based on the Fiesta chassis.
We have now owned the car for six months and are very pleased with it so far, and it ticks all the boxes we hoped it would. The 3 cylinder engine is more nippier than the 1.2 Zetec we had before and also more economical, the Fiesta just didn’t like hills, this takes them in its stride. The car is more spacious and more comfortable, we both like the higher seating position.
The jury is out on the rear door opening sideways, it feels much heavier than the previous pull up hatch, and on the odd occasion when parking you have to leave a bigger gap behind if you want to access the boot than with the hatch.
So to sum up, yes we would recommend the Ecosport and definitely do not regret our choice as we have done sometimes in the past.
