First launched in India back in 2013, the EcoSport compact soon became Ford India’s best-seller. Even after more than 3 years, the car is still the best-selling Ford in India. Today, Ford gave their EcoSport a mid-life facelift.
On the outside, the new EcoSport gets a revised front, thanks to new headlight cluster (with projector headlamps and LED DRLs), reprofiled bumper, foglights, grille and a skid plate. Rear too gets revised taillight and new bumper. Overall, the new EcoSport looks more attractive and stylish than before.
On the inside, 2017 Ford EcoSport comes with a new dashboard design whose highlight is the infotainment system in the center with large 8 inch touchscreen infotainment system. This is a much needed updated since the current EcoSport comes with a tiny screen in the name of infotainment system.
The infotainment system adopts Ford’s new SYNC3 operating system to offer seamless connectivity with your smartphone. It also gets navigations, parking sensor, rear parking camera, advanced audio system with 10 speaker Bang & Olufsen system that delivers 675 watts of power.
