In terms of exteriors, the car will now have a newly design honeycomb grille. It will also get new bumpers at both the ends, featuring fresh fog lamp design borrowed straight from its cousin Freestyle. Also, the company might update the lights at both ends along with new alloy wheels. The cabin space will now pack a new 6.5-inch floating touchscreen with Ford’s SYNC3 infotainment system which was earlier also seen in the EcoSPort, Aspire and Freestyle. Apart from these minor bits, the major upgrades will be reserved for under the hood update as it will get the new Dragon family 1.2-litre petrol engine which is also shared with the Freestyle and the EcoSport. Apart from this, it will fetch the same 1.5-litre TDCi engine as earlier seen. Both the engines will be available with a 5-speed manual gearbox as a standard option. Apart from this, the car will now be available in the CNG form, like the Aspire CNG that went on sale recently at Rs 6.27 lakh (ex-showroom).
When launched, the car can be seen at a similar price tag as the current model which retails at Rs 5.59 lakh (ex-showroom). It competes against the like of other hatchbacks such as Hyundai Grand i10 and the famous Maruti Suzuki Swift.
