The new Ford EcoSport Signature edition has just been spied somewhere in the southern part of India. The completely undisguised unit looks to be in the final stages of testing. One of the most prominent changes on the new Ford EcoSport Signature edition is the new alloy wheels that look sportier than the existing model. The front end of the compact SUV is also expected to carry some subtle changes but the said portion is not visible in the spy images. The new Ford EcoSport Signature edition might also receive some premium accents in the cabin to offer a better feel when compared to the present day model. The new Ford EcoSport Signature Edition was spied by a Team-BHP reader when he was on his way to Chennai. The new 2017 Ford EcoSport facelift was launched in India in November last year. The compact SUV was in the headlines primarily due to the fact that the company did not hike the prices of the new facelift considerably despite giving it a significant makeover inside out.
There will be no mechanical changes in the Signature edition and hence, the power will come from two engine options. While the 1.5L diesel engine is good for churning out 99 hp of power and 205 Nm of torque, the newly introduced 1.5L petrol mill develops 120 hp and 150 Nm. The diesel engine gets a five-speed manual gearbox while the petrol version can be picked between the choices of a five-speed manual and a six-speed automatic gearbox. Just like the regular model, the new Ford EcoSport Signature Edition will also come with features like automatic climate control, two connectivity options viz Android Auto & Apple CarPlay, rear parking sensors with camera and a lot more.
The new Ford EcoSport Signature edition may come in limited numbers to offer exclusivity to the customers. The compact SUV is likely to demand a significant premium over the existing model, thanks to the added features on offer. More details in coming days.
