The Ford EcoSport has done very well for the manufacturer in India. Last year, the new EcoSport was launched in India. The company has full faith in this product for India. But somewhere down the line in Europe, the EcoSport has not been able to replicate the same kind of success. The company is now thinking to replace the Ford EcoSport in Eupore with a compact SUV that will be based on the Fiesta platform. The car has been spotted testing in the UK and will make to production soon. The 2020 Ford EcoSport will not come to India anytime soon before the end of next year though.

2020 Ford EcoSport Design
The Ford will carry different design style from the current EcoSPort for sure. The car’s design will lean more towards a crossovers looks. The Fiesta’s design is going to be key here. Ford will ake sure there are subtle reminders and touches that relate the car to the Ford families most famous hatchback. The interior will be feature loaded. The car will come with the latest SYNC software for its entertainment system and the upholstery will be more sporty and durable too. There will be more emphasis and though on the rear seat and boot too. While the front row is an excellent place to be in, the EcoSports Achilles heel is its rear seat comfort. Ford will address that.
