These trim levels are spread across petrol and diesel engine options along with the manual and automatic transmissions.

It's the new "Dragon" 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol motor that has been entrusted with handling duties. The diesel EcoSport is paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox and returns a mileage of 23kpl. While both the engines come mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, the vehicle also gets an all-new 6-speed automatic transmission, which is a torque converter.
