Ha ha ha

IMO, the spy shot does not seem on India soil. The Ecosport seen is LHD.

Doubt this is on the Indian soil. Other cars in the background don't seem to give an Indian feeling. Also the vehicle looks quite big than what it should be. I believe EcoSport is supposed to be in the league of mini SUV's, this one's like a regular full size SUV.

The article says mid-decade? So this would only be a glimpse?
If that is the way, then why display? Just to give a preview as a concept?

Ford plans to launch 8 new vehicles by mid-decade in India. This is the 2nd car of the eight cars planned.

ECOSPORT will be showcased in its "concept" form. This means that the production vehicle is a good 6 - 9 months away. I am off to buy the New Fiesta.

Those were exactly my thoughts too! So I am back to holding my Fusion for a longer time,
till something good surfaces.

The Ecosport will have ordinary lights to achieve cost targets.

Looks like a lot of tiltilating leaks to build up hype. let us hope they do not crash it like they did with the Fiesta pricing. & hope they bring in 4X4 with the AT gearbox.

I think the test vehicle is a Fiesta not EcoSport. Check the windows (quater glass)

Even I had the same doubt.
But then why test a Fiesta? What new is coming up?

Buddy, that's why I said "in Fiesta guise". They're using the Fiesta body shell to confuse the onlookers. See the tall stance, it's definitely not a Fiesta underneath
