If you look at the engine choices that Ford is offering, there is the 1.5 litre diesel and 1.5 litre petrol, which are present in the current Ford Fiesta as well. These two engines are available across all four trim variants of the EcoSport. The 1-litre EcoBoost variant, however, is available only in the Titanium and Titanium Optional trim variants, going to show that this little turbo-petrol engine that has been causing quite a stir won’t come cheap. It promises the most power and also excellent fuel efficiency. However, it will only come with a five-speed manual variant. Also read: Ford showcases EcoSport to public ahead of launch
If you want the 6-speed dual-clutch automatic Ford EcoSport, you will get it only with the 1.5 litre petrol engine – the same as the Ford Fiesta, which is a treat to drive anyway.
