The Freelander heads to Eastnor for a real test of its off-road ability
No images of the interior have been released yet but Ford says the EcoSport will deliver the high 'command' driving position expected of an SUV. Mays also promised contemporary standards of craftsmanship, quality and refinement inside too.

I LOVE it ...
It doesn't look any more like any other car, than all cars on the road.
Trends dictate the shape/colour etc of cars.
Oh yes, and the government trying to persuade us all to drive small cars with no style, no power and NO I won't be driving one , thanks!
There hasn't been a totally exclusive looking car for 50 years.
I used to drive a Kuga ...and believe me it's nothing like the Qashqai, which is one of the easiest to drive cars i've experienced.( On the subjest of Nissan, the JUKE is also a brilliant car )
Anyway, I look forward to Ford bringing this one on to the market and i'll definitely be putting my name down for a test drive.
you rock ford
Sod all you who think its a rip of other cars, how many cars look alike anyhow?
I for one like it, a lot! Would i buy one?
Keep up the good work Ford! After all they sold millions of the Focus when it was released years ago, before the restyled edgy look, which looks great even now.
Looks like Ford are taking on the Nissan Juke, this is better looking. Fingers crossed it drives as well as others in the range.
Ford havent copied the design chap, this is the Kinetic design as used on the whole range... based on a Kuga built using Fiesta parts no doubt.
I hope they do drop the 1600cc econetic (ECO DIESEL) engine in it.. be cheap to run and congestion charge exempt then too!
Not a bad looker at all I dont think!
I like the front end, be suprised if that gets into production.
Been reading the other reviews, interesting.
The Kuga looks nothing like the Quasqai, and it certainly doen't drive like one, it is much better in every respect except the lead-in model price. As for the Eco Sport looking like a Kia, that's no great shock, Kia ripped the new Kuga design off for their clone, the Sportage and the (sister model) Hyundai cross over.
The Terrios has been doing the same thing (small 4x4 with a bit of kit) for years but was always a bit too small to make it really practical. The Jimmny, too basic.
