Ford has officially unveiled the EcoSport ahead of the Delhi Auto Expo. The vehicle wears a CUV version of the company's Kinetic design language with a large octagonal grille and discreet headlights. Despite its concept looks, Ford says the vehicle could be in production in as little as six months.

Under the hood, the EcoSport boasts the smallest Ecoboost engine ever created. The turbocharged 1.0-liter, three-cylinder engine is good for around 118 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque, though a small-displacement diesel option may bow in the future.

The EcoSport will be built in India and Brazil and is likely to play a large role in growing the Ford presence worldwide. The vehicle will head to 100 markets globally and is slated to be the second of eight new Ford products headed to India by 2015. That doesn't mean we'll be seeing the CUV on our soil anytime soon, however.

      This new EcoSport looks pretty cool... ...but I am absolutely horrified at the thought of Ford releasing the 2015 Mustang as a GLOBAL car, meaning they are going to release it in India. Giving India the 2015 Mustang is like you selling your soul for chocolate. ITS POINTLESS, STUPID and WRONG.

      It'd be interesting to see that in North America alongside the B-Max. This approach would be a reflection of the larger C-Max and Escape that seem to be similar in size but different in function and intended audience.

      I hope it stays in India and Brazil. I won't say it's ugly, but it's definitely strangely proportioned.

      Wow, that's the ugliest Ford product I've seen in a very long time. Has Ford lost it's way, styling wise again? I hope not. For decades, they made some of the ugliest cars around. I thought this was in the past, bu it looks like it's it's in the future too.

      The proportions are odd and the fascia is ugly. Otherwise, the rest of the vehicle looks actually quite uninteresting. Still, I think it would be a good idea for the US.

      I don't want the car, but I do want the engine!

      Anyone else see some odd Mercedes references in the styling? more specifically the C-Pillar?

      And it won't have those headlights when it is put into production. And there's nothing discreet about them. Kinda weird declaring a concept to be a production car like this.

        No different to the Verve concept which became the Fiesta mk6 in 2008.
