Evolution of the last generation EcoSport into this fantastic looking machine is the best ever transformation one could see in this segment. Apart from its exterior evolution, the interiors are now even more satisfying than ever. Ford has simplified the lineup and buyers can now choose between just two engine options (instead of earlier available 3) for their new car.

The 1.5L Diesel engine on the new EcoSport is good for 100 PS and 205 Nm of torque. It stays the same as old generation SUV and returns a healthy 23 kmpl of claimed mileage. Petrol powered Dragon engine is for those who love performance while diesel power is good for everyday commuters with bigger numbers on the odometer everyday.
