The Ford EcoSport in Europe will soon be getting a new Active version with the growing popularity and positive customer feedback of the Active trim on models such as the Fiesta and Focus. Ford has confirmed the unveil of the off-road inspired EcoSport on the 6th of November.
Going by the Active versions of the Fiesta and Focus, this new model will feature an increased ground clearance, additional body cladding as well as some unique styling changes inside and out. These changes will give the compact crossover better rough road capability while also improving the aesthetic appeal.
The teaser image reveals that the Ecosport Active will come with Active badging and black plastic fender flares. Apart from exterior changes, the interior could also feature special branded seats, scuff plates and unique wheels.
The European Ford Ecosport offers AWD system as an option as well.
Besides announcing the EcoSport Active, Ford of Europe has planned a new “series strategy” that will be introduced later this year. As part of the change, models will be available in three main trim levels including Active, ST-Line and Titanium. Certain models, such as the Fiesta and Focus, will also offer X series and Vignale variants.
Ford will also offer “convenient equipment packs” which group the most commonly selected options together. This reduces complexity and promises to give customers better value for money.
