The flagship of the Ford EcoSport 2018 model range is the Titanium model, which sports chrome exterior trim elements to help separate it from its more affordable siblings. But that’s not all that’s different.
The Titanium is $28,990 plus on-road costs, which is relatively affordable considering some other competitors are well into the low-to-mid $30k zone with their front-drive petrol high-riders. It’s powered by a 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder engine with 92kW of power and170Nm of torque, and has a six-speed automatic. It’s front-wheel drive.
It comes with all the stuff the Trend has but adds keyless entry, push-button start, climate control air-conditioning, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, power sunroof, leather accented seats, HID headlights and LED daytime running lights, bigger 17-inch alloys, powered side mirrors with puddle lamps, and silver roof rails.

And it takes the safety game a step further as well, with blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, not to mention front parking sensors. That’s on top of the standard reversing camera and rear parking sensors.
