From what all we have read and heard, the Ford EcoSport just about manages to seat five adults in comfort. So when news broke that Ford is planning a 7-seater version of it, our interest was naturally keener given that adding another row of seats onto the fairly compact footprint of the EcoSport is rather a tough challenge.
That’s what Ford Brazil plans to do. The carmaker is apparently working on a longer, 7-seater version of the EcoSport. Interestingly, even with two additional seats in the cabin, the longer, 7-seater version is likely to come with the same wheelbase as the current model sold in a number of countries but India. The extra length, in fact, will be courtesy of extended rear overhangs.
