Ford EcoSport facelift: what to expect?
The new spy images indicate that EcoSport will undergo a major modification of its nose. Although the test mule seen in these spy photos is still heavily covered, it clearly shows that the front bumper and grille will receive a styling update.The front bumper of the updated Ford EcoSport is now imitated to some extent Greater territorial crossover Sold overseas. It uses a triangular fog lamp housing and will continue to be equipped with round fog lamps, but angled LED daytime running lights will be installed around these units. These LED lights will also be used as turn indicators. The grille of the updated EcoSport will also undergo subtle styling adjustments. Although the grille shape is more or less the same, we expect that the design of the insert is different and there may be multiple options, depending on the variant. The headlights are expected to remain unchanged, but they can also undergo some reconfiguration.
Internally, we hope that Ford will use updated textures and more features to beautify the interior of the SUV. The revised EcoSport is not expected to have any mechanical changes, which means that 1.5-liter gasoline and 1.5-liter diesel engines will continue to be used. The 1.2-liter turbocharged gasoline engine from Mahindra is ready, but these plans have been shelved due to the breakdown of the strategic partnership between Ford and Mahindra earlier this year.
Since its launch in 2013, EcoSport has received a long list of features, equipment, styling and machinery updates from time to time to stay competitive in India’s growing compact SUV market. Although this SUV has a history of nearly ten years, it is still one of the important products of the Ford brand in the world, especially in India, which is one of EcoSport’s parent factories. EcoSport made in India is being exported to multiple markets including North America.Ford recently started Export EcoSport to Argentina And where the model seems to continue to be in high demand.
The updated EcoSport we saw in these spy photos may enter the Ford showroom later this year and will also be exported to other markets.
EcoSport’s main competitors will include the recently updated Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Toyota Urban Cruiser, Kia Sonet, Nissan Kicks and Renault Kiger.
