US auto major Ford's much acclaimed EcoSport SUV will be now available in India with LED Daytime Running Lights, claims a new report.
According to a report by Cartoq, Ford is also considering to offer EcoSport with sunroof in India. Although the export models of EcoSport are offered with the sunroof and LED Daytime Running Lights, the India bound models are not. Now the latest report suggests that the India specific EcoSport will also come with LED Daytime Running Lights, which the company calls Signature Headlamps. The Signature Headlamps will be priced at ₹14,000 and this pricing also includes the associated wiring required for the DRLs.
Launched in June 2013, the EcoSport comes with 1.5L petrol, 1.5L diesel and the 1.0L EcoBoost engine under the hood. The 1.5L petrol engine gives 112 PS power and 140 Nm torque. The revolutionary EcoBoost EcoSport engine churns out a power of 125 PS and 170 Nm torque, along with a mileage of 18.9 kmpl. The diesel variant of EcoSport is the most fuel efficient among all models, delivering a mileage of 22.7 kmpl.
The classy style and the strategic positioning of the EcoSport in the domestic market have helped the company have an upper hand in the SUV market. The arrival of EcoSport challenged vehicles like Renault Duster and Scorpio in the country. The vehicle received more than 30,000 bookings within the first 17 days of its launch in India on 26 June.
Earlier in February, Ford had slashed the prices of EcoSport in India, following the excise reduction announced by Finance Minister P Chidambaram in his latest interim budget.
