    News About Ford EcoSport Car Insurance

    • Next-generation Ford Ecosport likely to be based on Ford Fiesta

      The next generation Ford Ecosport is being developed and tested and is likely to be based on the company’s own mode, Ford Fiest, according to sources. The brand new car is expected to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show this year. The new Ecosport is expected to be quite different from the current version of the car. The SUV, that will share its platform and interiors with Fiesta, is likely to be longer, taller, and wider than the existing Ecosport. The test mule was spotted to have a three-spoke steering wheel like the Fiesta with a newly designed instrument cluster and centre console. The front end of the car is much like the Fiesta – rounded and fewer sleek cuts. The fascia has black-coloured grille, C-shaped cuts on the bumper, and fog lamps. The all-new Ecosport is expected to get a muscular look with a large glass area and an airy cabin.
