The all-new EcoSport will be much sleeker and looks much sportier than the current version. It has recently spotted being testing under heavy camouflage
Ford has started testing a mysterious new car in Europe and it is the all-new EcoSport that is expected to make its global debut in 2020. The car was caught under heavy camouflage but here is a rendering image based on the EcoSport that shows how it may look like in production form.
The all-new Ford EcoSport will be underpinned by the new Ford Fiesta platform, which makes it sleeker in design. The all-new Ford EcoSport can be more of a crossover than a butch looking SUV.
The mellow-down design of the all-new EcoSport is because of the EcoSport’s presence in the global markets and Ford’s future product strategy. The EcoSport is quite popular in India but not so much in many global markets, the all-new design approach may change the way markets respond to the all-new EcoSport.
The 2nd generation EcoSport may not remain restricted to the sub-4m meter length, which will put it into a higher tax category in India. However, the length of the all-new EcoSport has not been confirmed yet.
The rendered image, which is based on the spy pictures show the long bonnet of the upcoming EcoSport with raked A-Pillar. It gets a coupe-like styling and black cladding all around to give it the butch look. The window-line looks aggressive too. The all-new EcoSport will get the latest Ford’s design that incorporates a hexagonal grille in the front.
The all-new EcoSport may only offer petrol engine options.
It is likely to be powered by the all-new 1.5-litre 3-cylinder Dragon petrol engine that was introduced in the EcoSport last year. The 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine is also expected to continue in the all-new EcoSport.
However, the 1.5-litre TDCI diesel engine may get dropped due to the stricter emission norms. In Latin America, the current EcoSport is powered by a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine and that may continue in that particular market with the model change. Also, Ford offers 4WD option in the Brasil, a feature that will be offered on the all-new EcoSport too but in limited markets.
