The Ford EcoSport will get two new variants – the Titanium S and the Signature Edition. Both variants will be launched in India on the 14th of May, which means that we’re just days away from the official unveil and price announcement. While pictures and features of the EcoSport Titanium S have already made their way on to the internet, here is a clear, walk around video that shows the new compact SUV in all its glory.
As displayed in the video, the EcoSport Titanium S variant will be a top-end model, with plenty of stylistic changes. The compact SUV gets a blacked out front grille, smoked headlamps with HIDs, a contrast roof and 17-inch alloy wheels with a new design. As for new features, there’s a brand new electric sunroof – a first in segment feature. The Titanium S trim gets a touchscreen infotainment system with Ford SYNC3, which is equipped with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a host of other apps. Other feature inclusions include a new instrument cluster and a tyre pressure monitoring system.
The Titanium S model will also get a 1 litre-3-cylinder petrol engine with turbocharging. This motor will offer a class leading 125 Bhp-170 Nm, making the EcoSport the most powerful sub-4 meter petrol compact SUV. It will be paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox that powers the front wheels. Ford could also stiffen up the suspension, making the EcoSport Titanium S a sharper handler. As for the interiors, the compact SUV will get orange inserts on key bits such as the seats, dashboard and scuff plates. The EcoSport Titanium S will sit at the very top of the variant line-up, and is likely to have an on-road price tag of a little over Rs. 12 lakhs.
Along with the Titanium S variant, Ford will also launch the Signature edition, which will be available with a 1.5-litre, naturally aspirated Dragon petrol engine and a 1.5-litre, Duratorq turbocharged diesel engine. It remains to be seen if Ford sells the Signature Edition of the EcoSport with an automatic gearbox. As for pricing, the EcoSport Signature edition will sit above the Titanium+ petrol and diesel variants.
