EcoSport launching in Brazil in late Q1 2017.
Confirmed to having the spare wheel on tailgate for emerging markets.

Those alloy wheels are amazing! Better than the current version available in our market. I also liked the redesigned fog lamp set-up. The side profile looks a notch better with the new set up.

So, if Brazil is getting the new one by the end of Q1 2017, can we expect the new model by end of this year? I really hope they launch it by then because this is one of the top contenders on my wish list.

The 2017 Ford EcoSport facelift has been spotted for the first time on Indian soil by an OnCars India reader.

Quote:
Ahead of its official launch, the same has been spotted exclusively and for the first time in India. The new model of Ford’s compact SUV is to feature multiple design changes, both on the outside, as well as on the inside.
On the exterior front, the Ford EcoSport facelift 2017 is to come with a completely revamped front fascia. There are to be new headlamps along with an extensively modified front bumper that is now to accommodate restyled fog lamps.

From the photos of the Brazilian spec (which most probably we will get too), I see that they have removed one of the backup lights. The current model has both the backup lights. So I guess like many other brands, they too have started the cost-cutting.

I know that even the single backup light will get the work done, but such imbalanced things become an eye-sore to me. I get the same feeling when I look at the back of i20 Active. An excellent design but for the imbalanced backup lights.

Interesting....
Bees inspire lightweight, strong honeycomb cargo shelf!

Honeybees didn’t actually create the four-way cargo shelf for the new Ford EcoSport's cargo area, but they did lend their design to the recycled paper honeycomb material that gives the shelf its unusual strength.

To create the adjustable cargo shelf , a layer of hexagon-shaped cells made of 100 percent recycled paper and water-based glue was sandwiched between two layers of composite material. It’s able to hold more than 100 times its six pound weight in cargo.


Not only is it strong,its super light too!

The cargo shelf can hold any of four positions in the cargo area to best suit a driver’s needs:
- In the lowest position, it serves as a load floor for maximum storage.
- In the middle position, it creates a secure storage area beneath the floorboard.
- In the high position, the area underneath increases to create a cargo floor that lines up with the fold-flat second-row seats.
- Removed and stored vertically against the back of the second-row seats.

This is not cost cutting, its practiced in west; there is a single reverse light and on the other side a fog lamp. The other side will have a fog lamp in EcoSport.

Punto practices this design philosophy right from the very beginning whereas other companies with products designed in EU have started adopting it in several countries.

The rear fog lamp is not practiced in India barring premium segment players, its a good idea to have useful fog lamp on one side. In India its on the right hand side whereas in EU it is on left.

I like the new face, but the Hexa like wipers look so odd. Doesn't suit the EcoSport at all.

Should retain the current setup or go single arm.

Be great if they brought the 4WD shown in the pic. It would be a first in segment and advertised well, would surely be a good selling point which they certainly would need with all the new launches slated for the festive season this year.

Saw this being tested on Coimbatore - Salem highway, on 10th early morning. Sadly, could not click any pictures since my co passengers were deep asleep.

The face looks aggressive and I like the new grill with fewer slats better than the current grill.
