Ford EcoSport BS-VI launched

Nice! The Ford EcoSport BS-VI is the first compliant diesel in segment?

Well in a way, yes. However, Tata has announced the Nexon diesel too but then there is no price confirmation yet. So, in effect, the EcoSport diesel is the first BS-VI compliant diesel in the sub-4m segment. There is no change in power or torque – 100PS/215Nm. This engine is paired to a 5-speed manual only. The 1.0-litre Ecoboost has been discontinued while the 1.5-litre Dragon series petrol continues. It also produces 122PS/149Nm. While a 5-speed manual is standard, a 6-speed auto is optional. Autoalive is the only blog to have driven the automatic version last year. Mileage numbers aren’t out but we expect a slightly lower number than before. A 3-year or one lakh kilometre warranty is standard on the EcoSport.

A recent survey conducted said that the Ford EcoSport owners spend as low as Rs 1,400 for scheduled service in the first year while the 100,000-KM or 10-year service is surprisingly affordable at just INR 4,700. There is also a price estimator on the Ford website.

The EcoSport continues to offer a 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system on most trims. The top ones though get a 8.0-inch unit with Android Auto and Apple Carplay. There is also navigation feature and six airbags. Ford also offers HID projector headlights on few trims.

The new Ford EcoSport competes with the Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, Hyundai Venue and Honda WR-V.

Here is a detailed price comparison vis-a-vis the BS-IV version.
