The Bronco Sport has been a big hit for Ford, but the time has come for the compact SUV to get a pretty major revival. Although the handsome design looks like it will change only slightly, a major update is on the way inside and it is likely to get a new off-road treatment as well.

Our spy photographers caught a handful recently Bronco Sports testing and managed to get a peek inside the updated SUV. Although much of the interior remains under wraps, we could see Ford testing a massive new infotainment screen.

Compared to the old one, the new touchscreen appears much larger and looks a lot like the Escape’s optional 13.2-inch unit. This likely means that the software will finally upgrade to Ford’s SYNC4 infotainment system and bring a bunch of useful updates with it.

That other property means that Ford has he had to reorganize the dash and the vertical vents seem to have been moved elsewhere. In a move that may frustrate some buyers, the Bronco Sport may also lose some physical buttons for HVAC controls, which appear to be replaced by touch controls at the bottom of the display.

On the outside, camouflage still covers the front and rear of the facelifted Bronco Sport, meaning it’s still unclear how much will change with the update. Overall, the design looks more or less unchanged, as you’d expect from a mid-cycle update.

However, how we have seen beforeFord appears to be testing an even tougher version of the Bronco Sport. The test cars were spotted wearing a set of rugged six-spoke wheels with a Mustang Mach-E Rally-like belt around the perimeter and wrapped in chunky Goodyear R/T tires.

The wheel package is then combined with wider rocker panels and redesigned black trim around the wheel arches, making this new version of the Bronco Sport look even more aggressive than the current Badlands model. Whether it will get any other mechanical updates for better off-road capabilities is yet to be confirmed.
