The EcoSport facelift’s exterior appears to draw cues from the new Ford Edge and Ford Kuga crossovers.

The exterior will feature a more mature design with new headlamps, a revised grille with dual slats, and large foglamp housings with turn indicators. Its design appears to draw cues from the new Ford Edge and Ford Kuga crossovers. Depending on the market, the rear-end will not get an externally-mounted spare wheel, while the taillamp clusters could be revised. The external spare will continue to be offered for India though.

Spyshots have revealed that the interior has undergone a thorough facelift, featuring a new steering-wheel with buttons, revised instrument cluster and new HVAC vents in the center console.The infotainment system and the buttons around it have been redesigned, now being upright and closer to the driver.
