Will the Ford EcoSport prove to be a good ride on rural roads?

The vehicle is good on rural roads but it definitely is better on city roads and highways. It has a high ground clearance at 200mm, competent engine and comfortable interiors which makes it a good drive on all sorts of terrains. The vehicle has been equipped with all the latest features including safety equipment like ABS with EBD, six airbags etc. Therefore, you need not worry at all. The vehicle, if driven well can manage off-roading and give a good mileage as well. In fact, it can wade through water at 550mm depth as well with no issues. Yes, it definitely is not as sturdy for off-roading as a full grown SUV and is typically an Urban drive but it won’t disappoint you if you take it off the city concrete every once in a while. Also, if you are planning to take it off the road, you should remember that it has a non-metal sump cover and no sump guard which can give you trouble at times therefore, enjoy this vehicle on concrete most of the times but once in a while, take it off but treat is with care when you do so.
