Ford India has finally given the EcoSport sub-4 metre SUV a BS6 upgrade. Its variants have also been rejigged, with more standard features and a 3-year/1 lakh km warranty. All variants are now priced at a premium of around Rs 13,000 over their BS4 counterparts. The EcoSport rivals the likes of the Mahindra XUV300, Hyundai Venue, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, and the Tata Nexon. Here’s a closer look at what each variant packs at the price tag:
Petrol MT- Rs 8.04 lakh
Diesel MT- Rs 8.54 lakh
We start off with the bare-bones variant of the EcoSport. It is available in 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines. Standard equipment includes 15-inch steel wheels, front and rear power windows, height-adjustable front and rear headrests, manual AC, halogen headlamps, as well as electric ORVMs. It receives a basic entertainment system with FM, AUX-in, as well as Bluetooth and USB connectivity. Safety kit includes dual front airbags, ABS+EBD, rear parking sensors, high speed alert system, rear child lock, and engine immobiliser.
Being the base variant, it missed out on side and curtain airbags, front fog lamps, rear wash wiper and defogger, rear view camera, smart entry with push start/stop, as well as height-adjustable driver’s seat. Other omissions include a 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, roof rails, LED DRLs, electric sunroof, silver steering wheel inserts, and ambient lighting. This variant is the ideal pick if you’re not too finicky about features.
Petrol MT- Rs 8.84 lakh
Diesel MT- Rs 9.34 lakh
The Trend variant on the EcoSport is a decent upgrade over the Ambiente variant. Aside from all the features in the base variant, the Trend variant gets additional equipment such as 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic AC, rear view camera, a 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with embedded navigation, and dual USB ports. It also gets other additions such as steering-mounted audio controls, height-adjustable driver seat, and rear wash wiper with defogger.
While this is a decent upgrade, it lacks features like smart entry with push start/stop, rear package tray, roof rails, LED DRLs, leather steering wheel, as well as side and curtain airbags. It also doesn’t get Ford’s SYNC 3 with voice recognition software and Android Auto and Apple Car Play connectivity.
Petrol MT- Rs 9.63 lakh
Diesel MT- Rs 9.99 lakh
The third variant in the EcoSport is a relatively minor upgrade over the Trend variant. It gets additional kit like front fog lamps, one-touch driver side button for front and rear power windows, power fold outside mirrors, smart entry with push stop/start button, satin aluminium roof rails, and LED DRLs. It also gets emergency brake assist, ESC, traction control and hill assist. It misses out on features like front map lamps, illuminated glove box, ambient lighting, electric sunroof, auto headlamps, rain sensing wipers, and side and curtain airbags.
Petrol MT- Rs 10.63 lakh
Diesel MT- Rs 11.03 lakh
The Titanium Thunder gets all the features from the Titanium variant, along with new additions such as blacked-out body inserts, sporty 16-inch alloy wheels, electric sunroof, thunder decals, and chrome inner door handles. It also gets emergency brake assist, ESC, traction control, and hill assist.
Petrol MT- Rs 10.53 lakh
Diesel MT- Rs 11.03 lakh
Petrol AT- Rs 11.43 lakh
We finally head to the higher-end variant of the EcoSport. It gets all the features from the Titanium variant and additional kit such as emergency brake assist, ESC, traction control, hill assist, as well as side and curtain airbags. Other equipment consists of rain sensing wipers, automatic headlamps, sunglass holder, paddle shift (AT only), electric sunroof, and front map lamps. It misses out on illuminated glove box, ambient lighting tyre pressure monitoring system, SYNC 3 with voice recognition, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Petrol MT- Rs 11.08 lakh
Diesel MT- Rs 11.58 lakh
The S variant is the most feature-loaded variant of the EcoSport. It comes with SYNC 3 voice recognition with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, illuminated glove box, ambient lighting, black painted roof, sporty alloy pedals and premium leather seats.
In the end, if you're opting for an affordable variant, without too much of a compromise on features, the Trend variant is the ideal pick. However, if you're willing to shell out more for premium equipment, you can go for the top-spec S variant.
