The Ecosport undoubtedly kickstarted the competition in the compact SUV segment. It’s still a popular choice in the segment for buyers looking for a well built vehicle. Here is one EcoSport from the southern part of India that will make you think twice before you consider any other vehicle in the segment.
The car is customised by Evo Customz based out of Palakkad, Kerala and it definitely redefines the way EcoSport looks like. To start with, the already good looking vehicle gets a Ferrari Rosso Corsa inspired red paint job. Interestingly, Ford does not have the red colour option in their portfolio as of now except the mighty Mustang.
The modified EcoSport gets a body kit to give it a more muscular look. The body kit includes customised front bumper, side skirt and rear diffuser. It makes the EcoSport look much lower than the stock version. The headlamps have been upgraded with imported ones and the DRLs look much similar to the old generation Range Rover Evoque.
There fog lamps gets LED lamps which are much more powerful and give the car a distinctive look. LEDs also replace the conventional lamps in the tail-lamp unit, which has been blacked out. To make the front fascia more aggressive, the modifier added bonnet scoops too.
The rear D-Pillar also gets vertical LED brake lamps. The high-mounted brake lamp on the roof spoiler has been blacked out while there has an added spoiler lip painted in black accentuating the looks for the vehicle.
The roof has been blacked out and receives a crossbar to get a more menacing SUV look. The alloy wheels get a black paint job along with ORVMs, and the front grille that highlight the complete set-up. The whole modification job costed Rs. 1.7 lakh.
What about the engine?
The engine has been left untouched with this modification. The EcoSport comes with three engine options. There is the powerful 1.0-litre EcoBoost, 3-cylinder petrol engine with turbocharger that produces a maximum of 123 BHP.
There is 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that produces a maximum of 110.5 BHP of maximum power and then there is diesel 1.5-litre turbocharged engine that churns out a maximum of 98.5 BHP of maximum power. Even though the sales of EcoSport has slowed down in recent times, the solid build of the car still attracts many customers.
