The EcoSport has been selling in the Brazil for a few months now, isn't it very easy to get the pictures of the interiors? Why hunt for them?

It must be a mis-match with the Test cars, as its highly unlikely (also un-sightly!) to have a spare wheel mounted on the swing gate ( would look like you stole it from some other car! )
And also the other low variant in the picture has the steel wheel in the swing gate too.

You can see it in the pic
Even if they could not do anything baout the gap, they should at least blacken the inside sheet metal and not leave it in body colour.

The stock tyre is from MRF in the picture. I seriously hope they change it in the production car.

True, but just want to see what all goodies are included. Will there be anything missing or new items? Just curious.

Its got to be the same interior...though are the current interiors on the new fiesta bad to touch? Too grainy and plasticky?

Can never know. If we dont have new items, maybe we can see what's missing.

Since they are too focused on pricing front, they might probably change to JK (I hope they don't!) but I don't expect anything better than MRF for now.

Reverse light postion also seems to be different between the two lower variants. The grey car with steel spare has white light on the right too- probably base version with no rear fog lamps? Not sure if both are different lower trims.

Spotted these pics of a 2013 Ecosport on a Ford Dealership FB Page outside of India.

Rear Bench of the Ecosport 2013. Looks kinda cramped!! Maybe the front seats are pushed all the way back.

The age old (monochrome?) display. Hope they provide a GPS enabled LCD unit on the top end TITANIUM variant (as an option atleast!)

Possible Color shades. Will Ford bring in the complete palette here?

The Glove box looks tiny. Lifted from the Figo perhaps?

I am all excited about the 1L EcoBoost engine, but honestly, I don't like the looks of this SUV. Why can't these guys make good looking SUVs like in the old days???

I think Ford makes wonderful SUVs. I personally love Endeavor's look. This particular car is not meant to be an full blown SUV and I believe it would be wonderful performer and will do the job just fine.

First of all, lets stop calling it an SUV. It has few characteristics of an SUV like the higher ground clearance and hence they call it urban SUV. Adding the good bits of a SUV+premium hatch makes it perfect for our roads and traffic. Although we cant call it a perfect design like the sexy Evoque, its not bad either. Looks are subjective and i think Ford has done a wonderful job on not messing it up.

But, what you mean good looking SUVs in the old days ? I guess all of 'em looked box-like, like the Defender and had more straight lines than curves.

That's true. We can't expect things that makes a SUV in Ecosport. Over expectations is always a problem. It's an baby SUV. We will have to draw a line there and stop going beyond that.
