The Ford EcoSport Titanium (automatic) has a stylish design, featuring a chrome-covered grille with honeycomb patterns, a muscular bonnet with sculpted lines, and adjustable headlamps with integrated DRLs.
On the sides, the SUV is flanked by roof rails, blacked-out B-pillars, ORVMs, and sporty radial alloy wheels.
