Like the global-spec model, the new Ford EcoSport SE trim does not get a tailgate-mounted spare wheel

Commenting on the launch of the EcoSport SE trim, Vinay Raina, executive director, Marketing, Sales & Service at Ford India said, "Customers increasingly follow global benchmarks in design and look for things that are unique and distinctive, just like the new EcoSport SE. The SE carries forward EcoSport's fun to drive credentials as well as its rich legacy of outstanding safety and best-in-segment technologies like SYNC 3"

Visually, as mentioned earlier, the only major difference here, compared to the existing EcoSport, is the rear section of the subcompact SUV. That includes a new tailgate which comes with a chrome slat and a new number plate housing, along with a new dual-tone rear bumper with a silver insert. The SE trim also gets a set of 16-inch high gloss silver alloy wheels and the foglamps are in new body-coloured housing. The rest of the exterior elements remain largely unchanged, including the hexagonal grille with chrome details, and the larger projector headlights with LED daytime running lamps.

What's worth mentioning here is that the EcoSport SE does not get any spare wheel. What it gets is a tyre pressure monitoring system, along with tubeless tyres and a puncture repair kit. That's because the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) had announced an amendment to the Central Motor Vehicle Rules (CMVR) in July 2020 that vehicles in the M1 category, which include all passenger vehicles with a seating capacity of up to 9 occupants can be exempted from providing a spare wheel if the car has TPMS, tubeless tyres and a puncture repair kit.

The cabin, on the other hand, remains largely unchanged in term of looks. Features-wise, the new EcoSport SE trim comes with a 9-inch touchscreen display with navigation and connectivity features like - SYNC 3 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as Ford Pass integration. The latter is a smartphone app that comes with a factory-fitted cloud-connected device, which allows EcoSport owners to perform several vehicle operations - like starting, stopping, locking or unlocking remotely, via the FordPass app. And yes, it also gets a sunroof.
