Loving Life after 50

Meeting the Ford #EcoSport for the First Time

The Ottawa-Gatineau International Auto Show is happening and Thursday Night Kent and I had the pleasure of attending a media preview event as guests of Ford Canada, celebrating their launch of the all-new Ford EcoSport. It is the sleekest, cutest SUV I ever did see.

“The all-new EcoSport is the compact SUV designed to be the perfect partner for a life full of surprising possibilities. It’s what you need when you need it. Trim outside, spacious inside, it’s nimble and ready for just about anything.”

I love the look of the new EcoSport, all the benefits of an SUV in a more compact size.  The prototype at the car show was the Titanium edition.  So sleek, I am very impressed with the look I just wish we could have gotten to sit inside. Ford is continuing its commitment to sustainability and using renewable materials in the production of their vehicles. “The small but mighty honeybee was the inspiration behind the design of the adjustable cargo floorboard in the all-new For EcoSport. The strong, but superlight cargo shelf weighs just six pounds, but can handle almost 700 pounds of heavy items. Constructed from all-natural paper and water-based glue, the eco-friendly honeycomb floorboard is just one example of how EcoSport was designed to help you Go Small and Live Big!”
