Looking for the Next Generation Ford Ecosport? You have to wait for a while

New pictures of the facelifted Ford Ecosport on the test run have been seen on the net suggesting that the Next Generation Ecosport will be on hold for some time now.

The facelifted Ecosport which is undergoing test runs with camouflage features cosmetic changes in the front with a big bold grill and fog lamp housing upgrades. However there is no change in the shape of the headlamps and in the rear you cannot say the vehicle is an upgraded one. The inverted L shaped fog lamp housing with turn indicator looks modern but the changes will not glamour the aging design of the car.

Keeping the cost in mind there might not be any change in the mechanicals but you can expect more features in the facelifted one. Of course the upgraded model will come with a higher price tag.

What made Ford think about another facelift?

Ford cars in India have gone through facelifts, be it Ikon, Fiesta, Endeavour or Figo. But all these vehicles have similarities which is they have undergone facelift once in their life cycle. This makes us think what made Ford to bring a second facelifted Ecosport into the Indian market?

Ford Ecosport along with the Figo has been the product of fortune in India. Though the design seems to be aged, Ecosport is still fun to drive and well built mini SUV in India. No wonder it still sells in good numbers. The breakup with Mahindra would have left Ford with no option to continue its existing product line up as bringing a new product would take sufficient time and we know Ford always brings the fully developed product unlike half baked products from other manufacturers. This is the legacy of a company which has a century in history.

Ford knows it cannot afford to lose the highly competitive mini SUV segment and is keenly developing a world class product for India. The next generation Ecosport might come sometime next year and till then enjoy the butch looking facelifted one.
