2017 EcoSport have started arriving at dealerships and it some sources are to be believed the launch could happen before February.
The 2017 Ford EcoSport was spotted at dealer stockyard. The car was the top of the range Titanium+ variant as the vehicle was equipped with touchscreen and 17inch alloy wheels.
Ford has been facing stiff competition from the Vitara Brezza and with the addition of new features the company hopes to attract customers who did not choose the EcoSport mainly due to the absence of touchscreen.
Ford will equip the EcoSport with a new 8-inch touchscreen system and will feature Ford’s latest SYNC 3 infotainment system. It features like satellite navigation, DVD player, rear view camera, and door ajar warning.
New design 17inch alloy wheels will also be offered with 05/50 section Apollo tyres.
Ford India has deleted quite a lot of comfort from the EcoSport variants such driver seat armrest, lumbar support, cooled glove box, leather-wrapped handbrake & gear shift knob and chrome scuff plates.
The lower variants have not got any additional features but lose many features. Features like reclining rear seats, rear defogger, vanity lamp, driver seat height adjust, 60/40 split for rear seats, rear wash & wipe and passenger seat storage box have been omitted from Trend trim.
The 2017 Ford EcoSport Trend+ variant will now come with black roof rails, instead of the silver ones and passenger seat storage box, reclining rear seats and 60/40 split for rear seats have been deleted. Both Trend and Trend+ variants will get an integrated centre headrest for the rear another good feature to keep costs low.
Ford will also increase the price of EcoSport Titanium + variants by Rs. 20,000.
