#ArtAppreciationDrive with Ford EcoSport

Last Wednesday, 22 March 2017, we were invited by Ford Philippines to experience a fun-filled day full of art appreciation and discovery using their compact urban SUV, Ford EcoSport.

The Ford EcoSport has started a new trend in the Philippine vehicle segment. Its trendy design became popular among ageing millennials, according to EJ Francisco, AVP for Communications, Ford Philippines . Urban driving is an ease as you can squeeze it through the busy streets of Metro Manila.

Our early morning meetup was at Ford Bonifacio Global City. We were oriented about our #ArtAppreciationDrive schedule using a white Ford EcoSport.

IT’S TIME TO DRIVE

Our first stop is at the Pinto Art Museum. This would be a great drive as we are against the traffic so we can leisurely drive up to Antipolo, Rizal. Driving the Ford EcoSport was relatively easy, its interiors gives you a premium feel and awesome entertainment features. As this is a compact SUV, driving on flat ground is a breeze but it takes time to accelerate when we reached Ortigas Ave. extension after the round about.

Our team spent almost 3 hours checking the Mediterranean-inspired museum which is considered to be one of The World’s Most Instagrammed Museum of 2016 according to artnet News.

After appreciating the modern artworks of Filipino artists, we head down to Sip & Gogh Eastwood in Quezon City for a painting session. The Ford Ecosport is gliding through the zigzag roads of Sumulong Highway with a breeze. And since you can now experience the summer heat, thankful that it has a great air conditioning system which makes our drive more relaxed!

Most of us had never painted before so we are all so excited. And to add some challenge, we were given a task to paint our own version of the Ford EcoSport, which allows us to unleash our creativity! The Sip & Gogh staff guided us all through out the painting session. They also gave us some snacks which really help you to ease your stress while painting! And do not forget, “DO NOT DRINK THE PAINT WATER!”

MEET IT IN PERSON

The #ArtAppreciation drive using the #FordEcoSport would definitely allow you to #GoFurther. This is truly a great experience and really love how comfortable this trendy compact urban SUV.

If you want to see it in person to get the vibe, Ford Philippines will be at the Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) in World Trade Center from 30 March up to 2 April 2017.
