Ford India has revised the prices of the EcoSport for 2021. Along with the price cut on most variants, the Titanium trim now comes fitted with a sunroof as a standard feature. 

Ford India has updated the prices of the EcoSport for 2021, giving the entire range a significant price cut. It has become more affordable by up to Rs 39,000. Along with the updates, the company has also axed some variants from the EcoSport range.

The EcoSport range now starts at Rs 7.99 lakh for the petrol base Ambiente MT variant – which means a price cut of Rs 20,000. Similarly, the Trend MT petrol variant is now more affordable by Rs 35,000, as it’s priced at Rs 8.64 lakh. The Titanium MT petrol has gotten dearer by Rs 1,000, as it's now priced at Rs 9.79 lakh. However, the Titanium variants (both petrol and diesel) are now fitted with a sunroof, so that’s not really a deal-breaker. Titanium + MT, Titanium AT, and Thunder Edition MT aren’t available in petrol engine option now. The Sports MT version is priced at Rs 10.99 lakh, which means a cut of Rs 24,000. The top-end Titanium + AT has received the maximum price cut of Rs 39,000, as it’s now priced at Rs 11.19 lakh. 

The diesel variants have also received a similar price cut, except the Ambiente MT (Rs 8.69 lakh) and Titanium MT (Rs 9.99 lakh). The Trend MT variant is now priced at Rs 9.14 lakh – Rs 35,000 less than earlier. Like the petrol version, Titanium + MT and Thunder Edition MT have been discontinued for diesel version as well. The range-topping Sports MT is now priced at Rs 11.49 lakh, making it more affordable by Rs 24,000. The diesel variants aren’t available with an automatic gearbox.

Although Titanium + is not available at the moment, Ford has confirmed that it'll be back with an 'exciting update' soon. 

The petrol version of the EcoSport is available with a 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine, which develops 120bhp and 149Nm of torque. It’s available with a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic. The diesel version is offered with a 1.5-litre turbo engine, which is rated at 99bhp and produces 215Nm of torque. It’s offered with a 5-speed manual transmission.

The Ford EcoSport competes with the likes of Kia Sonet, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, Hyundai Venue, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, and Nissan Magnite.
