Highlights

  • The test mule was spotted somewhere near Chennai
  • Ford will launch the EcoSport facelift during the festive season
  • The car will have significant changes to the interior and exterior

The 2017 Ford EcoSport facelift has already been showcased in international markets but India is yet to get it. However, the wait will soon be over and by next month, we'll see the car hit the market. The company has been testing the car in India and we recently spotted a test mule of the 2017 Ford EcoSport facelift doing the rounds. Ford has managed to make some major changes on the car right from the way to looks to driving dynamics as well. With the Vitara Brezza doing really well, Ford really have a make a statement and grab a piece of the pie in the subcompact SUV segment, a segment which it has championed for so long. The EcoSport Facelift was first showcased at last year's LA Auto Show and now it's finally making its way to India on October 29, 2017.

As the photographs show, it is the front and rear which have been camouflaged and will see maximum changes. The grille up front will be a new hexagonal single-piece unit. The headlamp cluster and the fog lamps will have a new design and so will the front bumper too. The bumper at the front will be more chiselled and look to give better road presence to the 2017 Ford EcoSport facelift.

Viewed in profile, the EcoSport retains its silhouette barring the newly designed alloy wheels. The rear too will have some changes but not as comprehensive as on the front. One of the best styling elements on the EcoSport was the spare wheel mounted on the tailgate and we believe that Ford will continue to offer the same on the facelifted model as well.

Apart from the exterior, Ford will also be updating the interior as well. One can expect the company to have a redesigned fascia along with Ford's SYNC 3 touchscreen infotainment system which will be equipped with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto and navigation as well. The quality of materials is expected to go up, too. Ford might also update the instrument cluster and the steering wheel on the facelifted model. The AC vents might get a re-jig as well.

As far as engine options go, Ford will continue to offer the current diesel engine but the petrol engine, though with the same capacity as earlier is a three cylinder, instead of the 4 cylinder and this has been completely made and tested at the company's Sanand plant in Gujarat. The EcoBoost engine will no longer be part of the line up and we expect it to come with both manual and automatic transmissions.
