The Ford EcoSport SE Teaser Hints At A Launch Around The Corner


It is likely to be the final update to the EcoSport before its successor arrives

 

  • The SE variant will axe the tail-mounted spare wheel, with a number plate and chrome strip taking its place.

  • Cabin shots reveal a dual-tone black-beige upholstery and looks to be fairly loaded in features.

  • It will most likely retain the 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines as well as manual and automatic transmission (petrol only) options.

  • Expect it to sit between the ‘Titanium’ and ‘S’ variants in the EcoSport’s lineup. 

It looks like the Ford EcoSport SE variant may make its way to India soon, as the carmaker has dropped a teaser image of it alongside the S variant. In addition to this, more details have emerged about what to expect from the EcoSport SE.

 

The teaser image confirms that one of EcoSport's most distinctive traits, the tail-mounted spare wheel will be axed for this new variant. In place of that, there’ll be a number plate, with chrome slat above it and a faux rear skid plate. Aside from this, the SE variant looks pretty similar to the ‘S’. It is important to note that regular variants will continue to offer the tail-mounted spare wheel. 

A fresh set of spy shots reveal a dual-tone black and beige upholstery. The ‘SE’ also looks fairly loaded with steering mounted controls, electric sunroof, as well as what looks like an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system running SYNC 3 like the range topping S variant. Further details have emerged that the ‘SE’ is likely to offer a puncture repair kit as the spare wheel is missing, among other subtle additions. 

 

Under the hood, it will most likely retain the 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines from the standard model. The former produces 122PS of power, with the latter delivering 100PS. Both engines are paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard, with the petrol mill getting the option of a 6-speed torque converter automatic.

 

As for where the SE variant may be placed in the EcoSport’s lineup, it may be between the Titanium and S trims. It will continue to rival the Renault Kiger, Nissan Magnite, Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, Mahindra XUV300, Tata Nexon, and the Maruti Vitara Brezza.
