Apart from the Thunder and S variants, the EcoSport now comes with dual-tone black and beige upholstery (earlier it was all black).
The compact SUV continues to be powered by the same 1.5-liter petrol and diesel engines like the regular EcoSport. Where the petrol engine makes 123PS of power and 150Nm of peak torque, the diesel unit makes 100PS and 205Nm. Both the engines are available with a 5-speed MT only.
Along with the introduction of a new limited edition model, Ford has also updated the feature list as well as the pricing of the existing variants. In the Indian market, Ford has reduced prices of the other variants by INR 8,000 to INR 60,000.
