Next-gen Ford EcoSport starts testing under a Fiesta body

Written by Parichay Malvankar

Spotted testing for the first time, and on international soil, this is what could be the replacement to the current Ford EcoSport. Before you could jump to conclusions that this does not look like an SUV, Ford might be currently testing the new components for this compact-SUV under a heavily reworked Fiesta body.

The EcoSport has been on sale for a long time, here in India and even abroad. Throughout its life cycle, it still remains to look similar to what it has been with a reworked front, but the overall body style did not change significantly. The new Ford EcoSport is going to be more in sync with the latest brand design philosophy.

The all-new Ford EcoSport could make a debut in 2020. We can also expect Ford to reveal the new model to the Indian audience at the Auto Expo next year. The spyshot reveals the raised SUV-esque ride height clearly.

The new EcoSport will share the chassis and powertrain with the new Fiesta. It will remain a front-wheel drive compact-SUV, and do not expect 4WD / AWD at least for the Indian market.
