The dynamic surface treatment is combined with a number of offroad-oriented elements – including the front and rear underbody protections and the trunk mounted spare tire – and concept-like details such as the LED lighting units.

The compact SUV will feature a downsized powertrain, with a 1.0 liter, three cylinder EcoBoost gasoline engine, which according to Ford will deliver power and performance similar to those of a traditional 1.6 liter gasoline engine, while emitting less than 140g/km CO 2.

The new EcoSport will be marketed in nearly 100 countries worldwide and will be produced in India and Brazil, and other markets to be announced at a later time.

The all-new compact SUV will also play a significant role in Ford’s global plan to achieve a 50 percent increase in worldwide sales by mid-decade to 8 million vehicles a year. Asia Pacific and Africa is expected to deliver 60 percent to 70 percent of that target.

The EcoSport is the second of eight products Ford plans to bring to India by mid-decade.

Joining the EcoSport on the Ford stand will be the Ford Figo, the All-New Fiesta, the Ford Classic, and the Ford Endeavour – an all-action SUV.

    It’s really disappointing what Ford is doing with such models when trying to attract more clients from Europe or even far east. First, I would say that I really loved the car when I first saw the first image revealed about it. But then after I saw the whole model and especially the rear design which is typically asian I’ve really got disappointed as I felt that front design need more effort to have a complete invented profile, but it seems that Ford love playing already winning cards.

    Also, why trying integrating parts with other models like fiesta which clearly appear (for example) with the fog lights aquired for the model instead of proposed on design, while both cars will be manufacutred in different factories and even different countries.
