Ford EcoSport heads to Geneva

Ford will reportedly be debuting a new small vehicle at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The vehicle is called the EcoSport and looks to be something of a small crossover SUV. It rather reminds me of the Nissan Juke in some respects. The vehicle is based on Ford's B- platform.

In European markets the vehicle would get a 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine with the option of a 1.0-liter EcoBoost. Shoppers in Europe are also expected to be able to choose a 1.5-liter diesel engine currently used in the European Ford Fiesta.

There is no word on official launch date. The vehicle is expected to be very reasonably priced. At this time there is no indication of whether the vehicle will be coming to the US.
