Some might not be able to accept this but the updated EcoSport is actually one of the top selling subcompact SUVs in Europe. I think it's in the top 4 of 20 plus models in its segment in Europe.I think a name change actually makes sense. Main reason, the EcoSport has gotten such negative press.
EcoSport in the short list of the best seller subcompact SUVs in Europe?
The first 4 are :
The Chevy Spark-sized Fiat Panda is an A-segment car, not a B-segment car. The Fiat 500X is the B-segment Fiat CUV/SUV.
The EcoSport comes in at 6th, it's 5th place if you exclude the C-segment-sized CH-R which is a reskinned lifted Corolla hatchback.

Looks more like a Kia to me...so interesting, all the Sportage elements that showed up in the Escape are also here...
It sure looks better than the EcoSport and I hope they kill that asap in NA for this...
