Achieving zenith might not be as difficult as maintaining it, similarly, Ford’s reigning SUV EcoSport that has hardly completed 11 months in India is all set to undergo a makeover. It seems a little surprising and a little too early for the SUV to undergo a makeover, however in a rapidly changing scenario in domestic market, survival is becoming difficult unless one offers something new. Therefore Ford India has decided to tweak the vehicle; however the facelifted version of EcoSport will see light of the day by early 2016.

Unlike its rival Duster that is up for a minor upgrade, EcoSport will receive a comprehensive makeover. Cosmetic changes on the exterior front will be done to render a raw and aggressive look to the SUV. Additions of exclusive and premium features like sun roof could also be done to up the luxury quotient of the SUV. A host of changes will also be made inside the cabin, among the upgrades a redesigned dashboard, use of high quality materials and a couple of advanced equipments are included.

High end version of facelifted EcoSport is likely to get daytime running lights as standard feature, however projectors could be offered as optional. There will be no changes in the engine line up, the 2016 version of EcoSport will continue to be offered with the same set of petrol and diesel motors as seen in current version. Since new features will be added to the SUV, therefore a price bump is expected. Launched in June 2013, EcoSport swept 30 awards emerging the most awarded vehicle in India after Figo. EcoSport so far has been the most successful model offered by Ford in domestic market, the SUV is exported to various other markets from India where it is manufactured at Ford’s Chennai plant.
