Ford Ecosport is in the global market for sometime now and has noted a significant response across the globe. After its success, Ford Motors is working for its second innings and will introduce the updated Ford Ecosport soon. Earlier, this year Ecosport was greeted with some minute changes in its styling and a more powerful diesel engine. Now, there are various instances recorded where updated Ford Ecosport was caught testing in South America, hinting towards its showcase anytime soon in the global market.

The spied images have reflected the front, which probably have more tweaks when the production version will be revealed. The major changes of updated Ford Ecosport include reprofiled headlamps, tail lamps, a hexagonal grille, re-designed bumpers and a new set of alloy wheels. In the interior, a new steering wheel, a revised centre console and a new colour display for the Sync infotainment system is expected. The dashboard is expected to be similar to the existing model and will not be changed much. But, the images surfaced in China depict an entirely different dashboard. The updated Ford Ecosport will get a dual-tone unit with all-new centre console layout, a small infotainment display, controls and new set of rectangular air-con vents.

However, the new centre console looks less cluttered and bold. Currently the Ford Ecosport is facing competition from recently launched Maruti-Suzuki Vitara, and Mahindra Nuvo Sport. However, from the two rivals, Maruti-Suzuki Vitara is the one which is gaining popularity at a rapid pace and if a facelift will come at this point of time then it will surely help Ford in maintaining its market place in an effective manner. Considering the tailgate mounted spare wheel of the compact SUV, it will remain intact for the Asia Specific model. It is clear that India is a big market for this American automaker and the updated Ford Ecosport will be launched in India soon after the global launch.
