Ford has announced plans to launch five all-new or redesigned SUV and crossover vehicles across Europe in the next three years.

The drive to increase Ford’s SUV sales by 200% by the end of 2016 starts with the arrival of updated versions of the mid-size Kuga and EcoSport compact SUV, both due by the end of the year.

The new Kuga will see the introduction of new colour options and an enhanced multimedia system. The new multimedia system, SYNC 2, has an 8in touchscreen that controls the climate settings, sat-nav functions and Bluetooth. The system features voice activation.

The Ecosport facelift loses its rear mounted spare wheel in favour of a tyre mobility kit, and the updated car will offer improved refinement, performance and sharper driving dynamics.

Early 2016 will see the introduction of the firm’s large SUV, the Ford Edge. It will make its debut at the Frankfurt motor show next week. The Edge will also be offered in the UK for the first time.

Two crossovers are then expected to join the range, based on the Fiesta and Focus.

I thought the Ecosport was the SUV based on the Fiesta and the Kuga based on the Focus? Surely there isn't room to slot another Ecosport / Fiesta based SUV in their lineup?

So did I... Its going to be competing with itself isn't it? Unless they are talking about replacing the Ecosport altogether? The Kuga seems to have grown in size so I think there is room for something in between the Ecosport and the Kuga.
