Interestingly, their line up of the 2021 Ford range in Europe doesnít mention the Ecosprout, but that could just be an error on their part! It does suggest the Explorer could be imported, along with an EV.....
Lawrence Allan, Autocar - 12 March 2019:
'New images show Ford's Fiesta-based small SUV, which will replace the Ecosport in the firmís range [...] The as-yet-unnamed model, which could retain the Ecosport nameplate or take on a new identity more closely aligned to the Fiesta, will serve as a replacement for the ageing Ecosport as the smallest model in Fordís SUV range.'

Lawrence Allan, Autocar - 3 April 2019:
'Ford will return the Puma name to its range this year, [...]The sportier, more style-oriented sibling to the Ford Ecosport [...] also built on a Fiesta platform.
At first the new model was believed to be a replacement for the Ecosport, but we now know it will sit alongside that car as an alternative led on style and driver appeal.'


Lawrence Allan, Autocar - 27 June 2019:
'Fordís roll-out of its redesigned European business plan will result in a radical overhaul of its large car range, as the brand confirms three new model nameplates for the region in the next five years. [...] continues to grow its utility vehicle portfolio [...]The new models, which are in addition to the new Kuga family SUV, Puma small crossover and not-for-UK Explorer'

2020 Renault Captur:

'The new car is bigger, gaining 110mm in length, 20mm additional width and a slight height increase to make it more practical. Boot space stands at 536 litres, an increase of 81 litres over the current Captur.'

Maybe like the Fiat Croma? Honda Crosstek?

The taillights of the Captur II look very similar and almost as ugly as the C3 II.
