FORD HAS up­dated their pop­u­lar Ecos­port SUV and have given the car added style, more fea­ture and a petrol-pow­ered heart. Ex­te­rior de­sign changes in­clude a re­designed front fas­cia, with a large grille which is in­spired by Ford’s global SUVs, larger pro­jec­tor head­lamps with day­time run­ning lights and a larger set of 17-inch al­loys. In­side, the big­gest change is the ad­di­tion of a 8-inch float­ing touch­screen dis­play with Ford SYNC 3 tech­nol­ogy which sup­ports Ap­ple Carplay and An­droid Auto. Lower vari­ants make do with a 6.5-inch touch unit with sim­i­lar smart­phone sup­port. Other changes in­clude a com­pletely re­designed cen­tre con­sole, steer­ing wheel and the in­stru­ment panel. On the me­chan­i­cal front, the up­dated Ecos­port gets a brand new 1.5-litre three-cylin­der petrol en­gine, which re­places the 1.5-litre 4-cylin­der and tur­bocharged 1.0-litre 3-cylin­der Ecoboost petrol unit. Ford has also re­placed the 6-speed DCT with a new 6-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion. The 1.5-litre diesel re­mains the same and is mated to a 5-speed man­ual. Prices re­main the same and start at Rs 7.31 lakh
