Ford EcoSport facelift: Top 5 'new' additions in the compact SUV”

Launched in 2013, the EcoSport's design is now dated and hence the company has chose to launch an updated version.

To be launched on November 9th, the comprehensively redesigned All-New EcoSport will have a rugged new look, a sleek interior makeover, a raft of ingenious technologies and a new engine, offering more power and efficiency. The headlamps, fog lamps and the front bumper have been tweaked and at the rear, spare wheels remain untouched while global spec forgoes it.

Tyre pressure monitoring system- Yet another first-in-the-segment feature in the new EcoSport is the tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS).

The exterior of the new EcoSport gets major updates to its front fascia with a new hexagonal grille flanked by sharply edged headlamps that seems more like the ones on the Mustang. Moreover, halogen quadbeam reflector headlights is on the offer for all the variants except for the top-end variants which are equipped with projector lights with LED DRLs. The vehicle will come with a fresh face along with some added features on it. The motor is tuned to generate 121 BHP @ 6,500 rpm with 150 Nm of torque @ 4,500 rpm which will be mated to a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic unit with paddle shifters. The company is, however, retaining the 1.5-litre diesel engine which powers the current model.

The main difference between the new EcoSport and the outgoing models is upfront.

In the Indian market, the EcoSport facelift will compete with the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and Tata Nexon.
