Ford India is working with Mahindra for a new compact SUV that will replace the ageing EcoSport in 2020. The current-gen EcoSport recently saw a drop in pricing and revision of variants, which further clears that this can be their last bet for the compact segment against Hyundai Venue and Maruti Vitara Brezza. Ford EcoSport and Freestyle offer 6-airbags in the top-spec variant, making them two of the safest options when getting a city-specific product with limited interior space. On the other side, EcoSport offers a much higher seating and bigger alloy wheels inspired from typical SUVs.
