The Ford Company has done a major comeback in their new 2018 Ford EcoSport, though, only minimal changes are visible from the exterior, no one can deny its powerful engine in a road test. This model is designed and made for elegance and attractiveness with its rather unique front and back designs. The model possessed a sharper edge because of the smaller hood and slightly narrower bonnet compared to regular SUVs. The headlights are made out of a box of LED lights.
2018 Ford EcoSport – Exterior and Interior Design
The 2018 Ford EcoSport has an exterior dimension of 167.5 x 69.5, and a height of 65.3. That is pretty petite but that does not have any much difference from previous Ford EcoSport series when it comes to size. The wheels are made out of solid but very light material like an 18-inch alloy, plus it comes with an extra wheel at the back. Though it is very obvious that there were alterations on the front grille as they made it a bit wider than the previous model and it also comes with horizontal layers. The rims are made out of aluminum and are armed with a 17-inch tire.
So that was the exterior, but what made this model a whole lot different was the interior. The inside is very comfortable to sit and as mentioned earlier, it was really made for luxury and elegance. The seats are made out of smooth and lovely leather with a leg/headroom for the more comfortable sitting experience. The 2018 Ford EcoSport has a seating capacity of 5 passengers all in all. The steering wheel is covered with leather as well. Actually, the first thing you see and check in any new car model is how to advance and updated that dashboard is.

It has a full air conditioning system, a built-in WI-FI system, and a Bluetooth. That is too way advanced compared to other SUV models. The new model has an anti-theft alarm system inside, driving memory system and anti-collision alert.
