Ford EcoSport facelift spotted, launch expected within a year

It’s no secret that the Ford EcoSport is due for an update, more so now, considering new entrants like the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, the Mahindra Nuvosport, and the Tata Nexon are on their way. If you’re waiting for the updated version, you’ll be glad to know that Ford has started testing it. Published by Autos Segredos, here are some pictures of the Ford EcoSport facelift.

Engine options are likely to remain unchanged, and the same can be said about the boot-mounted spare wheel. The UK model, updated last year, let go of the latter, but also got a lowered suspension (by 10 mm) to aid the vehicle’s driving dynamics.
