2015 Ford Ecosport Exterior Design
The face of 2015 Ford EcoSport has not changed much from its predecessors and is pretty much the same as before. This car has features which can easily differentiate it from all other cars, making it stand out in the market and making it very effortlessly recognisable as a Ford. Front end has the signature hexagonal grille of Ford with loads of chrome bars being added which adds a glamorous shine. The head lamps are very sleek and fashionable and will put you off the mark by blending in with the chrome and almost going unnoticed at first glance. Though the side is not as attractive as it should have been, its rear end makes up for that with a revolutionary and brave change. Ford has decided to drop the tailgate mounted spare wheel from the design. This may not bode well with a few fans, but this indeed look very clean and bold. One more appealing feature is the placement of licence plate at the centre of the tailgate at the rear end. This adds much more symmetry to the design.
