The Exterior of the 2016 Ford EcoSport
A robust and more rugged look has been given to the exterior of the 2016 Ford EcoSport. There is speculation that one of the models may have a sunroof. This comes after a sunroof was seen of a concept vehicle at an auto show. One of the major changes that are visible in the 2016 model is the removal of the out dated spare wheel attached to the back of the car. Removing the wheel has down played the busyness of the vehicle. Having the wheel removed means a rear view window that is wider can be added. This will create a better view for driver when parking or driving. An addition of daytime running lights with LED and fog lights will probably be added the range.
