Ford Starts European EcoSport Production

  Ford Starts European EcoSport Production Ford has started production of the new European Ford EcoSport small crossover at its Craiova, Romania, assembly plant. The decision to build the new EcoSport in Europe rather than continue to import the vehicle from Ford’s plant in Chennai, India, will help Ford respond to rising customer demand. Total industry sales of SUVs in Ford’s 20 European traditional markets grew by 27 per cent last year and accounted for more than one in four new passenger car registrations. Craiova is the sole source of EcoSport production for Europe (excluding Russia), supplying 56 markets on four continents. This includes markets as diverse as the United Kingdom, New Caledonia in Oceania, Turkmenistan in Central Asia, and South Africa.

But that information didn't come in an official announcement made around the time of the car's arrival in dealerships, as is customary. Instead, we discovered that Ford's latest utility is already listed at Ford.ca with a starting price of $21,999.

That's for the entry-level S trim. An SE model comes in at $24,999, the Titanium at $28,499 and an SES variant carries an MSRP of $29,299.

It may pique your interest, as it did ours, that the Titanium trim is not the most expensive, even though that badge is typically attached to the most comprehensively equipped version of any Ford model. That anomaly is due to the SES being the only EcoSport trim that comes standard with AWD; four-wheel traction is optional at the other three price points.

Front-wheel drive models -- S, SE and Titanium -- use a 1.0L turbo three-cylinder engine (the same one offered in the Fiesta and Focus) that lends the EcoSport 123 hp and 125 lb-ft of torque. Opt for AWD and you get a 2.0L four-cylinder good for 166 hp and 149 lb-ft. A six-speed automatic is standard across the board. If you want a manual in a tiny crossover, you'll have to shop elsewhere.

For more about the EcoSport's design and features, have a look at the preview we published last summer.

2019 Mazda CX-3 crossover updated with a tad more power and refinement .
Mazda's smallest vehicle, the CX-3 subcompact crossover, is getting a refresh for the 2019 model year. Visually, you'd be hard-pressed to tell what changed, and that's because not much did. The grille now has slats that are grouped in pairs, and the rear taillights have been redesigned. But there are a number of changes aside from visuals that separate this model from the 2018.Under the hood is still a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine.
