The 2019 Ford EcoSport will come with some nice updates. According to latest reports, the recently-presented new version of this small crossover will enter production next year. To remind you, the original model of this crossover was designed for the Brazilian market. However, the company decided to expand it to other parts of the world. So, the second generation is produced and offered on various markets, such as India, Russia, South East Asia, Mexico etc.
This model came in 2013, so we can presume that the next year is a perfect time for a facelift. This will be a quite big update, which will include various kinds of changes. The company prepared many novelties that will definitely keep the model fresh and competitive in upcoming years. The new 2019 EcoSport will come next year, but the more precise launch date will depend on the market.

This update includes various kinds of changes, but the focus in on the new visual appearance. The new exterior design will make the crossover look fresher, which is definitely one of the most important things in the modern car industry. A great quality doesn’t mean much, if there is no modern styling. The company prepared various exterior changes for this occasion. Although the base shape remains the same, there is a whole bunch of new details. Most of them are naturally at the front end. The first thing that you will notice is a new grille design, which closely resemble some more famous Ford models, such as the iconic F-150 truck. Many details are borrowed from the newest version of the brand’s famous small hatchback Fiesta as well. Also, there is a new ST performance version, which features unique bumpers, bigger wheels and several other sporty details.

The great thing about 2019 Ford EcoSport is that the interior follows all those outside changes. These kinds of updates are usually about the exterior, but this model gives us much more than we expected. The new model imports many new features from the newest Fiesta. So, there are new parts like new steering wheel, gearstick, center-console and infotainment system, all same as in Fiesta. The 2019 Ford EcoSport will feature the newest version of the company’s familiar SYNC 3 infotainment system, smartphone integration, Bluetooth etc. Depending on trim level, there are touchscreens of different sizes, for 4.2 to 8 inches.
