The Blue Oval began working on the projects in early 2018 and they will enter the Brazilian market in 2021. It is claimed that the next EcoSport will grow in size and will be larger than the outgoing model. Although being based on the same platform, the upcoming EcoSport, Ka and Ka+ will have improvements to their proportions and different materials will be used based on the requirements. The Ka or Figo and its sedan derivative (second-gen Aspire) will grow larger in size to compete in a segment above.
The bigger Ka sedan will likely replace the now-defunct Fiesta sedan and thus it will be positioned in a higher segment in Brazil. The existing Ka or Figo will stay put on sales as the American brand’s entry-level model and presumably will be retailed until demand exists. The next-generation EcoSport will be introduced in Brazil two years from now.

The next-gen Ford EcoSport is being developed on very unique lines and will be vastly different from the outgoing model. It is expected to ride on a longer wheelbase, which will allow Ford to free more space inside the cabin. The new model will come with a hidden spare wheel. The removal of the tailgate-mounted spare wheel will allow Ford designers to work on the exterior styling of the SUV. Inside the cabin, the next EcoSport will receive a fully-digital instrument console similar to that of the European-spec Ford Puma.
