According to this render, the next-gen EcoSport will look sportier than ever adopting the Puma’s fascia.

The Ford EcoSport, is without a doubt, one of the most popular crossovers here in the Philippines. With its second-generation model introduced in 2012 however, it’s also very obvious that the current EcoSport is getting old.

Sure, it’s still stylish and it can still work great as a daily driver, but an eight-year run already sounds like a stretch, right?

For those who aren’t aware, Ford is currently working on the next-generation version of the Ford Ecosport. As of now, it’s known by a codename and all we know about it is that it’s still going to use the Ford B Platform.

It’s expected to be produced by 2021 but as far as engines and exterior styling go, we’re still in the dark.

Will the next EcoSport look like this?

So as of now, we can only speculate as to what this next-generation Ford EcoSport will look like. Thanks to Kleber Silva’s rendering, however, we now have some sort of idea as to what the new subcompact crossover will look like.

Mr. Silva's rendering of the next-gen EcoSport looks more athletic that the current version

If you look closely at the rendering, Mr. Silva has a rather sporty looking take on the next EcoSport. It features very deep character lines, an aggressive lower bumper, a silver-colored air dam, and a grille from the Ford Puma crossover.

We're also hoping that Ford will give the new EcoSport a rear door that opens upwards

From the sides, one can see that the Ford EcoSport render still features a significant minimum ground clearance. The artist also used a classy looking set of spoked wheels, which adds more elegance on top of the rendered car’s athletic look.

Towards the rear, it now features a seemingly, wider, more convenient rear door, which we really wish would come with the new EcoSport. Down below, the rear also has a silver-colored air dam. Neat!

Rumors for the new EcoSport

While we’ve said that there isn’t much information about its engines, some rumors are saying that the next-gen EcoSport will come with a 1.5-liter three-cylinder, which might make a maximum of 135 horsepower, and a 1.2-liter turbocharged mill, which in turn might make up to 117 horsepower and 230 Nm of torque.
