Ford EcoSport, the car that triggered the sub 4-metre SUV trend in the Indian automotive market, is soon set to receive a major facelift. Expect the updated EcoSport to launch in India during the second week of November, 2017.
Unveiled in late 2016 globally, the updated Ford EcoSport will receive a bold new face, which will make it more in line with Ford’s ongoing design philosophy. The big hexagonal grille flanked by large fog lamps have granted the facelifted EcoSport a lot of character. While the global-spec car has dropped the tailgate mounted spare wheel, the India-spec model will continue to have it.
The interiors, just like the front end, have been substantially updated. There is an updated dashboard, with an all new centre console, which looks much cleaner as compared to the cluttered one on the current model. Higher spec models of the facelifted EcoSport will feature a floating tablet-style infotainment system as well. Furthermore, the instrument cluster and the steering wheel are all-new as well.
Another major revision to the facelifted Ford EcoSport will come under its hood. Ford has officially revealed that its all-new 1.5 Dragon petrol engine will power the updated EcoSport. This 1.5-litre, 3-cylinder, naturally aspirated petrol engine is capable 121bhp of power and 150 Nm of peak torque - which are 10 per cent and 7 per cent better over the current 1.5 petrol engine, which it is set to replace. The new engine will come mated to either a 5-speed manual, or a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
Ford is also rumoured the sportier S variant with the EcoSport facelift, which will feature blackened out elements and bigger alloy wheels. The Ford EcoSport locks horns with Tata Nexon, Maruti Vitara Brezza and Mahindra TUV300.
