Wheel you or won’t you?

July 3, 2015

For some it’s a question of style, for others practicality – and individual taste plays a role too.

What are we talking about? Whether to have a rear-mounted spare wheel on an SUV of course!

For the first time we are making our EcoSport SUV available to customers with or without a rear‑mounted spare wheel.

Go for the distinctive spare wheel – sported by the original version – and you’re prepared for anything. Go without, and you get enhanced manoeuvrability and improved access. (And you still get a tyre mobility kit, to keep you moving should you need it).

Wheel or no wheel

We’ve also taken the opportunity to make a few upgrades. The flexible EcoSport is now available with a winter pack that includes a heated windscreen, mirrors and front seats; and a revised engine line up now includes an improved 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine, as well as 1.0-litre EcoBoost and 1.5‑litre petrol engines.

Thicker sound deadening materials make for a more comfortable journey, as does improvements to the ride and handling.
