The Ecosport is a subcompact crossover SUV that is manufactured by Ford. It was first manufactured at Brazil's Camacari plant, and the second generation concept model of Ecosport was later launched in 2012. Since the same year, the Ford Ecosport has been assembled in India at the Chennai plant. The vehicle's engine has been upgraded to meet the BS6 emission standards since 2020. Some of the major competitors of Ford Ecosport are Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Mahindra XUV300, Tata Nexon and Hyundai Venue.
With the 1-litre EcoBoost petrol engine dropped to meet the BS6 emission standards, the Ford Ecosport is now available with two engine variants. The variants either have a 1.5-litre TDCi Diesel engine or 1.5-litre Ti-VCT Petrol engine. Where the former churns out a maximum power of 99bhp, peak torque of 205Nm and displacement of 1498cc, the latter produces 120bhp of maximum power, 150Nm of torque and 1497cc of displacement.
With 6 variants named Ambiente, Trend, Trend Plus, Titanium, and Titanium Plus, Ford Ecosport is a front-wheel-drive that comes with both manual for diesel and petrol variants and automatic for petrol variants only. Its transmission is paired with a 5-speed gearbox.
Ecosport's performance is known to give 91% better mileage than any other SUV in the automobile industry. With a fuel tank capacity of 52 litres, the Ford Ecosport gives a mileage of 18.9 km/l for the petrol engine with a manual transmission, 15.6 km/l for the petrol engine with automatic transmission, and 23 km/l for diesel engine with manual transmission. It takes around 10.5 seconds in petrol engine and 12.76 seconds in a diesel engine to move from 0 to 100kmph of speed. It can touch the top speed of 180kmph.
With a major update in the display screen, the Ford Ecosport comes with built-in navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
