The Ford EcoSport has just received a face lift, and the compact SUV was showcased ahead of the the 2016 Los Angles Auto Show in the US. Ford has tweaked the exterior as well as the interior, in order to keep it relevant in light of the competition. The interior, especially, had begun to show its age and you'l be surprised to see how the refresh has managed to transform the interior. There's better equipment too. We expect Ford India to launch the new EcoSport in the country, sometime next year. While the 2017 version for the US loses the tailgate mounted spare wheel, expect the Indian Eco-Sport to continue with the feature. Scroll through the image gallery and discover what's new on the 2017 Ford EcoSport.
The 2017 model gets a new hexagonal grille with twin slats. The projector headlamps and large fog lamps look contemporary, and the faux skid plate adds to the rugged looking front end
The removal of the tailgate mounted spare wheel results in the number plate holder moving to the tail gate. Note the rear faux skid plate. It does look neater without the spare wheel at the back
New alloy wheels look quite sporty
The interior looks far more upmarket than the predecessor's
There's new switch gear, new steering wheel and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with SYNC3
