This is the 2017 Ford EcoSport spied testing in southern Europe.
Styling-wise, this EcoSport appears to get larger wheels and tires and different trim pieces that imitate the new Edge and recently modified Escape crossovers, which in turn will probably make the smallest Ford crossover look a little more significant.
This model, however, continues to use its spare tire on the tailgate, which hints to this particular vehicle being a version for South America or Asia. After the face-lifting, European designs will come without the visible extra wheel.
Modifications were made last year to improve the EcoSport’s improvement and comforts. It’s possible further modifications will likewise be made to put the Ford on par with rivals. The EcoSport is still said to be making a United States appearance in facelifted type.
But thinking about a totally brand-new version based upon the next-generation Fiesta is due around 2018 or 2019, Ford’s US and Canada dealers might lack a rival in the class for some more years.
