Rumour! Ford EcoSport facelift in India by October

Well, it’s about time that this happened. Rumour mills now suggest that Ford is ready to roll out the EcoSport facelift in India by October 2015.
A potential customer who had booked an EcoSport was informed about this by a dealership.
While previous rumours suggested that Ford might introduce the facelift version of the EcoSport without a tailgate mounted spare wheel, latest reports reveal that this might not happen.
Reason?
  • The EcoSport is already compact on the inside. Moving the spare wheel in the boot would compromise space.
  • With the spare wheel moved inside, the EcoSport might look more hatchback-like, taking away the rugged look of an SUV thanks to the externally mounted unit
What’s interesting, is that this new Figo Aspire compact-sedan shares the same diesel engine with the EcoSport & Fiesta. However, the latest revisions on the engine plonked in the Figo Aspire helps it produce 100 PS of power & 215 Nm of torque.
Now, considering that this engine will also make its way to the EcoSport on the facelift model, the result would be an 11% increase in power & 5% increase in torque from the same TDCi motor.
Changes to the EcoSport facelift includes:
  • New alloy wheels,
  • Colour display for SYNC infotainment
  • MyFord connectivity
  • Chrome garnish on dials
  • Turn indicator stalks moved to the right, from current left position
  • Better NVH
  • Slightly revised dashboard
  • Better quality interior plastics
  • Tweaked suspension settings
  • Ride height lowered by 10mm
