This new Ecosport will be coming to India by Oct (the festive season) of this year. It is manufactured in India and is a facelift of the Ecosport. The new Ford EcoSport Facelift (Ecosport 2018) has been spotted on the test. This seems to be spotted in Pune. It will be exported to North America as well. The Ecosport in India will continue to be sub-four meter in length.
The updated Ecosport gets a majorly revised dashboard. The current model’s button-riddled center console and the dashtop-mounted monochrome infotainment screen have been replaced with a free-standing touchscreen (6.5- or 8.0-inch units depending on the variant). This unit will feature Ford’s new SYNC 3 infotainment system and is also likely to come equipped with navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
New Ford EcoSport Facelift Specifications
The facelifted model is likely to continue with the same set of engine and gearbox options that Ford offers on the current EcoSport. These include 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines and the 1.0-litre EcoBoost turbo-petrol motor. A five-
speed manual gearbox is standard while the 1.5-litre petrol gets the option of a six-speed dual-clutch automatic.
The front portion is all new and gets a different front grille. This seems inspired from the Ford Kuga. The design language is the same for its SUVs and the similarity is quite evident. The headlamps are similar to the Mustang, with a chiseled look. There are new fog lamps also. There isn’t any difference in the side. A new set of alloy wheels will be offered in this upgrading vehicle. The rear gets a chrome strip. The Indian version will retain the rear spare wheel on the boot, like the existing model.
