Ford EcoSport S and Signature Edition launched in India

Ford India has expanded its compact crossover's line-up with the introduction of the top-spec EcoSport S variant and Signature Edition. The EcoSport S has been launched with an introductory price of Rs 11.37 Lakh for the petrol and Rs 11.89 Lakh for the diesel variant. The Signature Edition is priced at Rs 10.40 Lakh for petrol and Rs 10.99 Lakh for the diesel.

In terms of design, the model sports a dual-tone exterior finish (along with another Orange paint) and dark supplements for the grille, headlamps and fog lamps. The interiors of the compact SUV will continue the dual-tone theme seen outside, with elements on the centre console, doors and seats getting a contrasting finish.

The new variant of the EcoSport debuts a power slide sunroof which the American carmaker likes to call as 'fun roof'. The EcoSport S additionally makes a big appearance Ford's famous 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged EcoBoost petrol engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission. It gets new smoked HID headlamps flanking the blacked-out grille. Likewise, the fog lamps, roof rails and front bumpers have been done in black too. The compact crossover sits on stylish new 17-inch alloy wheels. The new Ford EcoSport is accessible with seven shading choices.

With the launch of EcoSport S, Ford has re-presented the 1.0-litre EcoBoost turbocharged petrol engine that was discontinued with the pre-facelift EcoSport. It makes 125PS of maximum power and 170Nm of torque. However, this time roughly it is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission instead of the 5-speed MT that was there before. The EcoSport S is on offer with a diesel engine as well. It is the identical 1.5-litre diesel engine that powers the standard EcoSport. It formulates 100PS of maximum power and 205Nm of peak torque, coupled with a 5-speed manual transmission. Further best-selling cars from Ford include Figo, Endeavour and more.
