Ford EcoSport successor patent filed in India recently, to rival Hyundai Venue

Ford seems to be gearing up for a significant comeback in India with its upcoming EcoSport successor. Leaked patents and recent speculations suggest that Ford is set to introduce a new offering aimed at emerging markets including India and South America. Here is a rendering based on the design patent and the leaked car that was spotted few years back in India and was intended to launch in partnership with Mahindra.

Drawing inspiration from recent Ford designs from both the American and Chinese markets, the new SUV is expected to sport a bold grille and stacked LED daytime running lights. The exterior design looks more rugged with black wheel arch cladding and sculpted lower doors.

Inside, significant improvements are anticipated, addressing the criticisms of the EcoSport’s basic cabin plastics and features. The new model is rumoured to offer a range of modern features such as a prominent infotainment touchscreen, digital instrument cluster, 360-degree camera and wireless charging. The inclusion of compatibility with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is also expected to enhance its appeal.

Underpinning the new SUV could be Ford’s VX-772 platform, possibly with a choice of petrol and diesel powertrains, including a 1.5-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. Recent speculation suggests Ford might opt for an all-Ford powertrain and platform configuration.

In terms of competition, Ford’s upcoming offering will face off against established rivals like the Hyundai Venue, Maruti Brezza, Kia Sonet, Mahindra XUV300, Tata Nexon and the likes.

Along with this, Ford is also expected to launch multiple new premium products including the new generation Endeavour, all-electric Mustang Mach-E, Ford Ranger, etc. The American carmaker is also planning to introduce an affordable all-electric product for the emerging markets.
