I would strongly recommend the detachable swan neck towbar for 2 main reasons:
1. The neck piece will partially obscure the number plate
2. Due to the spare wheel location the neck piece is very long & may be prove to be an obstruction when accessing the rear luggage compartment.
The image below is an Aragon Swan Neck Towbar which has now been discontinued.
The Bosal Swan Neck towbar will look very similar.
I also have the latest update on Towbars for the EcoSport.
Westfalia / PCT / A1Towing / TowTrust / Towsure have all said they will
probably never make towbars for the EcoSport due to predicted low volume
Witter Towbars do have it in their development list but is is low priority & has not as yet been assigned a part number.
No option is currently listed for the bolt on ball/flange ball towbar. To be honest i would not expect anyone to list it as due to the low number plate the flange ball bar would really obscure it!
The Maximum towing capacity is listed as 750KG QX30? Hope this helps
