Despite the fact that the official presentation of the compact crossover Ford EcoSport 2021 in the off-road Active should take place only on November 6, the web already has all the detailed photos of the new product.

Some time ago, Ford of Europe announced an off-road version for the EcoSport compact crossover – the new product was supposed to receive the Active designation. Officially, such a car should debut on November 6, but the guys from the foreign edition of Autonoción somehow already got their hands on the photos of the newest car.

It looks exactly what you’d expect, complete with a plastic finish around the wheel arches, as well as front and rear liners, tinted windows and redesigned alloy wheels.

The Active models feature a two-tone exterior with contrasting black roof and side mirror caps. If this looks a little familiar, it’s because Ford already sells a similar version in Brazil, where it has the Storm suffix.

Autonoción reports that Ford will sell the EcoSport Active in Spain exclusively with a 125 horsepower 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine that will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Despite the visual enhancements for off-roading, don’t expect AWD as the Active will have an FWD-only setup, at least in Spain. In select markets the EcoSport may come with all-wheel drive, including the aforementioned Storm version.

It is known that the list of new items will include a lot of everything – from automatic headlights, cruise control to recognition of road signs and automatic climate control. Autonoción says the local EcoSport Active will also feature a push-button start, leather / suede upholstery and an 8-inch infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. The starting price will be 24,100 euros

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Ford is not going to leave Europe without Mondeo. The information that the American automaker is going to withdraw from production Ford Mondeo turned out to be grossly exaggerated. The company announced that the 4th generation model will remain in Europe, albeit with one “but”.
