The Cooper Motor Corporation (CMC), the official distributor of Fold in Uganda, has unveiled the new Ford EcoSport compact Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV).
The sleek, luxury Ford EcoSport car was officially launched at CMC offices in Nakawa on Wednesday evening amidst admiration from clients who have already started placing their orders for the $32500 (about Shs120m) car with taxes inclusive.
During the launch, Richard Musani, the Brand Manager Ford Uganda said that the Ford EcoSport will offer customers more style, comfort, capability and above all it is a fuel efficient car which is powered by a 1.5-litre engine. In other words, for every 100kms, the Ford EcoSport uses about 6litres of fuel- an attribute that is highly sought for by most customers.
“The Ford EcoSport is a modern SUV in a league of its own combining quality design, rugged capability, modern features, superior fuel economy and great value for money. There is increased need for smaller engine vehicles that is which this Ford is 1.5litre engine car which ensures cost maximization since it is powered by a 1.499 cylinder petrol dragon,” Musani said, adding that they have high sales expectations on their latest car following its modern features. He added that this new brand also comes with upgraded smart and safety features.
Herman Mbalasi, the Country Manager CMC assured Ugandans that this new Ford EcoSport will not ‘disappoint’ them following its comfort and levels of sophisticated technologies.
“We are thrilled to introduce the new Ford EcoSport to the Uganda market. This vehicle comes with more advanced features, more refined styling and more sophisticated technologies. Driver will feel more comfortable and self-assured than ever at the wheel,” Mbalasi said.
This new Ford EcoSport builds on the commanding SUV driving position and rewarding Ford driving dynamics to deliver an even easier and more enjoyable driving experience using advanced technologies. Ford’s sophisticated SYNC3 communications and entertainment system is compatible with Apple Carplay and Android Auto which is also supported by the new floating, 8-inch colour touchscreen, which can be operated with pinch and swipe gestures.
