Sorry to hear you've having issues. Is it only on bumps? Certain revs or a certain speed?
Could be something loose in the boot or on the spare wheel. Exhaust shields have been known to rattle a lot too, it would be noticeable on revving the car up.

Try taking the spare wheel off and driving round, see if it happens then? As another test remove everything else from the boot and try again.
We once had a really annoying squeak and it was a nut that wasn't quite tight enough so rubbed over bumps. Really annoying and took ages to find!

Hi there,
Just a thought. If you have a GoPro - set it up underneath your EcoSport from different angles and take it for 5 min drives. Check the footage it might help identify exactly where the rattling is coming from.
Cheers!
