According to a new report, Ford India has hiked the prices of its recently launched EcoSport facelift compact SUV by INR 5,000 to INR 10,000 depending on the choice of the variant. The facelifted EcoSport is now available with a price tag starting at INR 7.82 lakh (ex-showroom).
Along with the price hike comes the benefit of a few additional features as compared to the new EcoSport facelift. Ford India has added features including a nine inch touchscreen infotainment system with Sync and Navigation, speed sensing auto door lock, rear view camera, rear parking sensors and passenger seat belt reminder. Ford has also made a few changes to the feature list such as removing the ambient lighting and My Key feature from the Titanium variant. These features will now be available only in the top-end Titanium+ variant.
Engine specifications remain unchanged and hence the Ford EcoSport facelift continues to be offered with a 1.5-litre, three cylinder petrol unit and a 1.5-litre, four cylinder diesel engine. The Dragon series petrol engine produces 121 hp and 150 Nm of torque while the diesel engine is capable of producing 99 hp and 205 Nm of torque. Transmission duties are handled by a five speed manual transmission and a six speed manual transmission as standard on the petrol and diesel variants respectively while a six speed automatic unit is available with the petrol engine as an optional feature.
