The top of the line Titanium S and the Titanium Signature variants will get bunch of new features along with cosmetic changes.
The new EcoSport retails at ₹ 7.82 lakh for the base trim and goes up to ₹ 10.52 lakh for the top-end variant. However, considering how popular the EcoSport is, Ford India has announced the introduction of two new variants, the Titanium S and the Titanium Signature variants with a launch slated for on May 14, 2018. The top of the line Titanium S and the Titanium Signature variants will get the performance-oriented 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine, stiffer suspension and a bunch of new features along with cosmetic changes.
In terms of design, the EcoSport Titanium S variant will first and foremost get the ‘S’ badging on the boot lid. Up front, the front grille goes all black, smoked projector headlamps with LED DRLs. Moreover, it will also offer black cladding surrounds for the foglamps and black roof rails. The most notable change is the new sporty alloy wheels that look much cooler than the standard one. However, this may result in the 17-inch wheels on the Titanium+ replaced with smaller 16-inch wheels. At rear, the EcoSport Titanium S variant also gets black roof-mounted spoiler with integrated brake lights. Moreover, the Titanium S will also get a tweaked instrument cluster with a 4.2-inch display and orange highlights on the seats and door trim. On the other hand, the Titanium Signature trim will get a spoiler, blue highlights on the seats and door trim, Electronic stability control (ESC) and Hill Launch Assist (HLA). And don’t forget the electronic sunroof on both the new variants and the Signature badge on the boot-lid.
Under the hood, the EcoSport Titanium S will be available in both petrol and diesel engine options, powered by 1.0-litre EcoBoost turbo-petrol engine which puts out 123 bhp and 170Nm. The 1.5-litre Dragon diesel motor will churn the same figures as the lower trims. The Titanium Signature edition will get the 1.5-litre Dragon petrol engine producing 99bhp. Both engines come mated to the new 6-speed manual gearbox.
