EcoSport is supposed to be highly fuel efficient as well as very low at carbon emission.

It is a passenger utility vehicle which is based on the Ford Fusion crossover.

After the successful Ford Figo, the Ford EcoSport is expected to be the next big thing in the company's India portfolio, and is expected to even surpass the success of the Figo model.

However, a few reports published in the recent weeks, claim that the EcoSport will be a Fiesta based SUV.

Taking into consideration the Fiesta platform, the Ecoboost SUV will possibly be available in only front wheel drive option, not carrying an all wheel drive option.

As far as the design of the vehicle is concerned, the EcoSport will be blessed with Ford's next generation, 'Kinetic' design language.

This is the same design signature which will be seen in the Ford upcoming products like Fiesta, Focus and Kuga compact SUV (coming in March 2012).

Moreover, the model is likely to be less than 4 meters in length, making it qualify for the lesser excise duty segment in the Indian market.

The length of less than 4 meters will help the company in pricing the EcoSport model more competitively.
