The new Ecosport from Ford has just been teased by the company on their Facebook page. The car is likely to go on sale once festive season begins in full flow and will see a number of minor updates which will allow it to keep on competing in the compact SUV segment.
The Euro-spec facilifted model of the EcoSport has already been seen and has a number of mechanical upgrades in addition to cosmetic changes. However, in India, mechanical updates are unlikely though there may be some tweaking in terms of engine tuning. As per the teaser, one can see the grille of the new EcoSport. The headlights also have DRL’s which make the car look even better and is one that consumers have been looking forward to for a while now. Unlike the Euro model though, the rear mounted spare wheel will continue to appear on the tailgate of the EcoSport.
The EcoSport will still be sold in three engine variants. This includes the 1.5 litre petrol and diesel engines as well as the 1-litre turbocharged EcoBoost engine which has garnered many accolades already. The car is expected to be seen with the onset of the festive season and no major changes in prices are likely. The EcoSport will compete with the Maruti Suzuki S-Cross and the Hyundai Creta in the compact SUV segment and with Mahindra also launching a host of new vehicles, the competition here just seems to be hotting up.
