Since this car looks very much like the new Fiesta, we don't think it would be something Ford would try to do. The new EcoSport should indeed have more rounded lines, but it will also be very different from Fiesta in order to maintain its own identity.
The new small SUV should be on the market by 2011, althoug the renderings give the idea it can arrive next year. It sounds a very short deadline for the new car to appear.
