The facelift version of Ford EcoSport that was launched by year end 2017 had fresh looks to offer, a new heart as well as upmarket interiors. Here is a close look at what the petrol AT version of Ford EcoSport has to offer.

Ford EcoSport is one of the winning models of Ford India and the company has put in enough efforts to keep up the interest of the consumers in this car. The quirky designed compact SUV caught on like wildfire at the time when it was launched and even though there is more competition now in the same segment, five years on the car is still going strong. The facelift model of Ford EcoSport that was launched towards the end of 2017 showcased that rejuvenation had been taken seriously by the carmaker. This might be also because the competition has toughened in this segment where there are cars like Tata Nexon, Renault Captur, Honda WRV and Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza to contend with.




The exterior of the car in its facelift version stands out and its looks are more premier this time. The front of the car has clean design aspects with larger headlamps, new LED inserts and projector lighting. The light spread is brighter and wider while the turn indicators are made part of the assembly unit of fog lamps. The bumper has a new design with a larger grille in front.

The alloy wheels are large and 17 inches. There are sensors in the door handles to lock or unlock your car along with the key fob in your pocket. The rear and side car profile remains the same. The interiors come with new tech features. The dashboard has a new design with a 10 inch touch screen unit on it which is available only with the top end Titanium trim models. The capacitive screen comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The car has a new instrument cluster with tachometer and speedometer readouts along with digital displays.

Other new features include new door panels, steering wheel with thick contours on the rims and storage spaces in different places. The cabin has a more premium feel and is well packaged. The powertrain options consist of a 1.5 liter three cylinder petrol engine along with a six speed automatic transmission system. The unit works in a refined manner and makes most of the power while holding costs down.
