Ford India has expanded its EcoSport model lineup with a new top-of-the-line EcoSport S and Signature Edition. The petrol version of the Signature Edition has been priced at Rs 10.40 lakh, while the diesel version is priced at Rs 10.99 lakh. The EcoSport S is priced at Rs 11.37 lakh (petrol) and Rs 11.89 lakh (diesel version) - all prices ex-showroom, Delhi). Both the new variants exude a sporty look and will be equipped with power slide sunroof, rechristened as fun roof.
The EcoSport S has been paired to Ford’s globally renowned 1.0L EcoBoost engine, delivering class-leading 125 PS of peak power and 170 Nm of torque to further enhance the compact SUV’s fun-to-drive credentials. The EcoBoost engine offers a fuel economy of 18.1 km/L (kilometers per litre) and 12% lower CO2 emissions than conventional four-cylinder engines. It will be mated to an all-new six-speed manual transmission that offers slicker, more precise gear shifts to aid quick manoeuvres and overtakes, the company noted.
The EcoSport S is replete with smart exteriors that enhance the compact SUV’s imposing stance and introduces all-new smoked HID headlamps with dark inserts and a more prominent black treatment to the fog lamp bezel, the company stated. The dark theme has been carried all through the exterior design with a blacked out grille, black painted roof & roof rails and 17-inch smoke alloys for a more noticeable road presence. As far as interiors are concerned the EcoSport S features orange accents on the seats as well as an instrument panel to break the monotony, thus beefing up the cabin’s premium appeal.
Ford said EcoSport S for enhanced driver convenience, introduces a new, bigger 4.2-inch digital information cluster along with the tyre pressure monitoring system. The sunroof of EcoSport S is also offered with Ford’s trusted 1.5L TDCi diesel motor that delivers best-in-class 100 PS peak power and an outstanding fuel economy of 23 Km/L, the company stated.
The EcoSport Signature Edition will come paired to the 1.5L three-cylinder TiVCT petrol engine that delivers 123 PS of power and a fuel efficiency of 17 Km/L along with the trusted 1.5L TDCi diesel engine. This vehicle will offer Ford compact SUV’s renowned performance credentials, with subtle design enhancements in perfect harmony, the company said.
On the exteriors front, Signature Edition features a series of changes to enhance its visual appeal. This vehicle features a more imposing grille with chrome surround and Diamond cut 17” alloys, black fog-lamp bezel along with all round graphics, rear spoiler and roof rails.
Anurag Mehrotra, President & Managing Director, Ford India, said the company is always looking to meeting the diverse customer needs. The Sunroof feature is a long-standing customer demand and the world-renowned EcoBoost engine technology is an example of Ford’s commitment, he added.
