Ford has recently added two new variants to the EcoSport sub 4-meter compact SUV, in the Indian market. The two new variants – S and Signature edition – come with a few visual changes and new features that differentiate them from the regular variants. Ford has just released a television commercial for the new variants. The 30-second commercial highlights the sunroof, which is the biggest new feature available with both the variants.
The Ecosport Signature Edition is priced at Rs. 10.4 lakhs and the Titanium S variant is priced at Rs. 11.37 lakhs (both prices are ex-showroom, Delhi). The deliveries of the new variants have started across India. The Signature Edition of the new EcoSport will be a limited production vehicle but Ford has not mentioned the number of vehicles that will be available in the market.
The Signature Edition gets a new chrome surround for the front grille, diamond-cut 17-inch alloy wheels, black fog-lamp bezels, a roof-mounted rear spoiler and roof rails. It also gets blue accents on the seat stitching, a floating-type infotainment system and the electric sunroof. The Signature Edition is available with the Titanium variant of the model and is available with both petrol and diesel engine options.
The EcoSport S variant of the vehicle brings back the 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine. The turbocharged 1.0-litre engine makes the EcoSport the most powerful vehicle in the segment. It churns out a maximum power of 125 Bhp and 170 Nm. Ford has also added an all-new 6-speed transmission. The new engine gives a sporty character to the EcoSport and produces more power than the naturally aspirated engine while returning more fuel efficiency, too. The EcoSport S is also available with the 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine that produces a maximum of 98.5 Bhp and 215 Nm.
The EcoSport S gets a black finish on the grille, black painted roof with rails, new 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels, black inserts on the HID headlamps and blacked out bezels on the fog lamps. It also gets contrasting orange inserts in the interiors to make it look sportier. Features like a bigger driver information console and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System is also standard.
