Ford's production version of EcoSport is ready and the car maker will unveil the complete SUV at the upcoming Beijing Automotive show. The sources close to the company said that the car will have a 1.0L Petrol engine which is a new refined engine, first to be installed in EcoSport. This engine, as per sources will be equivalent to Ford's 1.6L petrol engine. The Diesel engine will be a 1.5L engine which is currently fitted in Fiesta.
These Images were spotted while the car was getting its tank refuelled at one of the filling stations. The car is scheduled to be launched in January 2013.
The EcoSport interiors is a sumptuous combination of dark black, light grey and aerosol silver. The interiors are almost similar to the exisiting Ford's Fiesta. On safety side, the top variant gets front airbags and side curtain airbags as options. The equipment list also includes antilock brakes, electronic stability control, assistance in starting ramp and parking sensors.
We especially loved the chrome gear knob, steering mounted control, a small screen in the center console and leather seats. The butterfly shaped center console is lifted form the Fiesta but the side aircon vents are designed differently. Ford claims that the EcoSport has room for five passengers and their luggage.
The car will be priced in the range of INR 7-10Lac with the top diesel variant in double digits.
