1. Ford EcoSport 2018 vs 2017: Introduction

A baby city SUV with decent off-road ability is what comes up to our mind as far as the Ford EcoSport is concerned. As the small SUV and crossover segment is becoming increasingly competitive, the Blue Oval has taken a smart move to keep up with the current trend by giving its compact SUV a nip and tuck. 

While confirming that the Ford EcoSport 2018 facelift will debut in the Philippines very soon, the US carmaker has yet to announce a specific date. However, the recent launches of the refreshed EcoSport with sportier exterior and advanced technologies in other markets have given us certain clues of what to expect in the upcoming local-spec version. With all those pre-debut disclosures, the EcoSport 2018 is surely one of the most anticipated compact SUVs this year in our country.

Understanding the excitement of Pinoy car enthusiasts towards the local launch of the facelifted EcoSport, has put the much-awaited model into a close comparison with its pre-facelift counterpart. Our Ford EcoSport 2018 vs 2017 comparison will spot the differences between the two models in terms of exterior, interior and prices by placing them side by side.
