"** TWO PREVIOUS LOVERS ** MOT UNTIL 20th JULY 2019 ** FULL SERVICE HISTORY ** You know Bumblebee right? The Transformer who saves the world from the evil Decepticons? Yeah, well, we are so happy to be the current home of his little brother, this stunning Ford Ecosport who is currently sitting on his throne taking centre stage on our pitch. There’s no doubt he stands out wherever he goes and his previous lovers have cherished him so well you could be forgiven for thinking he hasn’t battled Decepticons on the dark side of the moon. His impeccable paintwork contrasts with his black 17" alloys in a unique and eye catching way, and he boldly makes his mark. He isn’t just amazing to look at though, oh no, he comes with an impressive spec list too, including: BLUETOOTH, CLIMATE CONTROL, REAR PARKING SENSORS, AUX INPUT, USB CONNECTIVITY, VOICE RECOGNITION, STEERING WHEEL MOUNTED CONTROLS, AUTO HEADLIGHTS, 17" ALLOY WHEELS, CRUISE CONTROL, HALF LEATHER SEATS, CD PLAYER, ELECTRIC WINDOWS and much, much more. You could have your very own Transformer! Please don’t hesitate to give the Driver Power award winning team at Renault Nottingham a call today to arrange your test drive today, it will be out of this world!"

Ten Second Review
The Ford EcoSport uses tried and tested Fiesta mechanicals to offer UK buyers a front-wheel drive car with added ride height and chunky good looks. It sounds like a simple recipe but sometimes simple works just fine.
Ford has had a distinctly patchy record with SUVs in this country, only finally hitting form with the Kuga in 2008. Prior to that, it had foisted tired Explorers and Mavericks onto an uninterested public. Buyers recognised that this was just the same old Ford issue of taking a round peg from somewhere in its global empire and attempting to bludgeon it into a square hole. Ford has clearly learned a lot since then. Or has it? Its latest Kuga, while a fine car, has developed from a car tailored to European sensibilities into, yes, a 'one-size fits all' world car. And the vehicle that Ford has deemed correct to slip in beneath it here in Britain is the EcoSport, a Fiesta-based model already sold in developing markets like India and Brazil. It doesn't sound like an ideal recipe, but if there's one thing we've learned, it's that the car-buying public is more tolerant of an oddball affordable car than an oddball expensive one.
The EcoSport is offered with Ford's innovative 125 PS 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine, claimant of the 2012 International Engine of the Year award. It makes 0-62mph in 12.7s on the way to 112mph. Plus there's a 112 PS 1.5-litre petrol unit which figures at 13.3s and 107mph. For those that prefer to go diesel, there's a 91 PS 1.5-litre diesel powerplant (14s and 99mph). The EcoSport also offers a comprehensive package of driver assistance technologies, including Electronic Stability Program and Hill Launch Assist. The chunky looks and high ground clearance suggest a small 4x4 but wriggle under the EcoSport and you'll find a singular lack of rear driveshafts. It is, in effect, a Fiesta on stilts but many drivers find the raised driving position more desirable than the requirement for any actual all-wheel drive capability.
Design and Build
Once you've got over quite how bluff-fronted the EcoSport is, it's actually quite an accomplished piece of design work. The almost Aston Martin-style front grille that debuted on the Fiesta makes its way over to the EcoSport and although the side profile looks a bit pinched, Ford have been very clever with the way they've managed to make a short, tall vehicle look so interesting. The glasshouse is elegant, the headlights and wheelarch treatment is very deft and the stance of the car is better than it has any right to be. It's built in a plant in Chennai, India, so we'll clearly have to see how quality pans out but it'll probably be built tough. Ford claims that the EcoSport has been designed to cope with terrible third-world road conditions, so it'll be right at home in the UK. Potholes, busted water pipes and rough roads are its bread and butter and a 200mm ground clearance coupled with a 550mm water wading ability should be able to see off most wet weekends in Wetherby. The side-hinged tailgate opens to allow access to a load space that Ford reckons is big enough to swallow a 560-litre washing machine - once the 60/40 split rear seats are folded, that is.
Market and Model
Prices start at around the £15,000 mark for the petrol 1.5 112PS variant, with a £1,500 premium if you want the Powershift automatic. The 125PS 1.0 EcoBoost petrol variant prices at £16,000 and there's a 91PS 1.5-litre TDCi diesel priced at around £16,500. Expect to find equipment items like keyless entry, rear parking sensors and Ford's SYNC voice-activated in-car connectivity system as well as SYNC Emergency Assistance. In addition, this crossover will be one of the first Ford vehicles in Europe to offer Ford SYNC AppLink, which enables customers to voice-control smartphone apps from the driver's seat. Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance directly connects the vehicle occupants to local emergency services operators after an accident, in the correct language for the region using information from the vehicle's on-board GPS unit and mobile network to pinpoint the accident location.
Cost of Ownership
Economy and emissions aren't too far off the vehicle this car is based upon, the latest Fiesta. There's been some small controversy around the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine not making anything like its claimed fuel economy figures in real world conditions, but that can be said of many small capacity turbocharged petrol engines. It's just a quirk of the NEDC fuel testing program. This 125PS variant claims to manage 53.3mpg on the combined cycle and 125g/km of CO2. Alternatively, the lower-tech 112PS 1.5-litre model model returns 44.8mpg and 149g/km. Finally, there's the 1.5 TDCi diesel which manages 61.4mpg and 99g/km.

PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new car.
You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the GFV or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.
Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a car once all payments are made.
This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the car is yours.
One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on monthly payments.
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.
Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for private individuals. This is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a car for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the car and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your car.
