The Ford EcoSport is the highest-selling model with the Blue Oval badge in India. It’s also the oldest model not just in its manufacturer’s portfolio but also in the segment. Still, there has been some demand for the compact SUV and the sub-4-metre model has been selling in decent numbers, at least, respectable enough to ensure the manufacturer doesn’t discontinue it from the market.
As has been a habit of Ford India, the Ford EcoSport has just received another variant rejig. Until now, the cheapest Ford EcoSport automatic variant that was available was the Titanium AT Plus, with an ex-showroom price of Rs 11.56 lakh. Now, however, anyone who requires an automatic transmission-equipped Ford EcoSport can pick up the newly introduced Titanium AT version, which costs Rs 10.66 lakh (ex-showroom). What this simply means is that buying an automatic EcoSport has just got a lot easier.
It should be mentioned here that the newly launched Ford EcoSport Titanium AT variant is the only model in its price range to provide its user with globally-renowned mobility and connectivity solution FordPass, a one-stop smartphone app fulfilling diverse ownership needs, totally free of cost. Basically, the new EcoSport Titanium AT model comes with a factory-fitted cloud-connected device that lets you initiate several operations of the vehicle such remotely starting or stopping the engine, locking or unlocking the doors, etc. Through the FordPass app on your smartphone. Other features highlights of the new model include cruise control, push start/stop button and a touchscreen infotainment system with inbuilt navigation.
