The upcoming 2017 Ford EcoSport facelift was recently spotted testing in India revealing some previously unknown details. This time we get a special sneak-peek at the updated cabin of the 2017 model, while the earlier test mules extensively revealed some of the new exterior updates made to the 2017 Ford EcoSport facelift. Slated to be launched in India around the upcoming festive season, the facelifted Ford EcoSport now comes with a host of smart and premium features that will make it a pretty strong contingent in the sub-4 metre SUV space.
Based on the new spy shots, it is clear that the cabin of the upcoming 2017 Ford EcoSport facelift has also gone through some considerable updates. The biggest change is the redesigned dashboard which now comes with a large stick-out display. The touchscreen infotainment system is likely to come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and it will also feature Ford's SYNC in-car system as well. There are more buttons and dials below the display for other in-car controls and the system also gets a nice glossy black finish. Overall the dashboard design is now cleaner and less cluttered unlike the one in the outgoing model. The steering wheel will come with mounted controls for music and telephony.
On the outside, the test mule is still covered in heavy camouflage so there is not a lot that we can talk about the styling right now. But, judging by all the details that we have gathered so far, the updated 2017 EcoSport comes with an extensively redesigned face that features a new front bumper and a new grille as well. The bumper also houses a pair of all-new angular foglamps, underbody plastic cladding, and a silver faux skid plate. The 2017 Ford EcoSport also comes with a new set of alloy wheels, restyled taillamps and redesigned cover for the tailgate mounted spare wheel.
Powertrain options are expected to remain unchanged and the 2017 Ford EcoSport facelift will continue to use the same 123 bhp 1-litre EcoBoost petrol, the 110 bhp 1.5-litre Ti-VCT petrol and the 99 bhp 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engines. Transmission options will include the 5-speed manual and 6-speed DCT automatic. The competition will continue with the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Mahindra TUV300 and the upcoming Tata Nexon, which is also set to be launched around the festive season. The upcoming Ford EcoSport Facelift will debut in India on October 29,2017.
