The EcoSport is a subcompact crossover originally made in Brazil by Ford Brazil.
Its first generation came out in 2003 and was based on the Cologne-built European Fiesta and used the Ford BS Platform. The EcoSport turned out to be one of the best-selling models in Brazil with few competitors i.e. Fiat Palio Weekend Adventure and the Volkswagen CrossFox.
In 2012, Ford brought out the second generation which was built on the 2011 Ford Fiesta B2E Platform and launched worldwide. This new EcoSport debuted at the Delhi Auto Expo in India and then launched in Brazil in 2012. Perhaps due to the manufacturing mainly taking place at Ford's Indian plant, Ford sold 200,000 of these models in India in the first three years alone. In some countries, the engine configuration was a 1-liter 3-cylinder turbocharged EcoBoost petrol engine.
India was the first to receive the new EcoBoost due to the Chennai plant with 6 trim levels including, Ambiente, Trend, Titanium+, Sports and Thunder.
Europe received a limited run of just 500 units to test the waters, but sales were disappointing (11,000 in comparison to 100,000 of their competitors) and so Ford redesigned the EcoSport to better suit the European market.
The latest models included Ford's SYNC driver connect system built in conjunction with Microsoft to allow for voice commands. An electronic stability program, antilock brakes and airbags were also new additions.
This EcoSport was discontinued in Northern America and India in mid-2022 due to a combination of ever-decreasing sales and the closure of Ford's manufacturing plants in India. In the USA, the new entry-level Ford will now be the Ford Maverick pickup truck.
