It has been breaking news that the Ford EcoSport Facelift will be launched on the 15th of September. The current EcoSport has been long overdue for an update since its introduction in 2013. The EcoSport Facelift was revealed globally at the 2016 LA Auto Show. The facelift is expected to bring in a fresh fascia and updated rear. This also ensures the fact that the model will be available during coming festive season.

The car is giving jaw dropping features – both in terms of interior as well as exterior. The hexagonal grille has been reworked while eliminating the thin strip atop the main grille. This basically houses the blue oval on the current model. The front bumper is entirely redesigned with large squared-off fog lamps and LED DRLs. The headlights will be retaining the shape, but they are now larger, lending the car much-needed refreshment. The alloy wheels are also expected to get an attractive design with the facelift. As far as the interior of the car is concerned, the overall cabin will remain the same but with added features. This being a facelift and not an entirely new car, space and interior layout will be unchanged as well.
The compact crossover comes loaded with features already, but this model might bring in added equipment and safety hardware. The centre console has been remodeled in order to accommodate an 8-inch touchscreen, which serves the purpose of an interface for the new SYNC 3 AppLink setup. Also, new in the feature are the steering wheel and the instrument cluster which have been added to this version.

The new features:
- The existing 1.5-litre petrol and 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engines are supposed to remain the same in the updated version.
- While the former is good for 110bhp of power and 140Nm of torque, in this updated form, the oil burner produces 99bhp of maximum power and 205Nm of torque.
- Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
- The car will also be equipped with Ford SYNC 3 infotainment system with 8-inch floating touchscreen system.
- The cabin has been equipped with a new dashboard layout along with better material quality.
Most importantly, the car has already been successful in creating great buzz which is indeed a positive sign for the company. This is directly related to the sale graph of the new model. Exciting and lucrative features have been added to it. The new EcoSport wears a redesigned front end with a new bumper and single piece grille. The headlamps have been re-profiled and now feature projector units and LED pilot lamps. New alloy wheels and paint shades are also part of the updates. This makes it look gaudy and absolutely alluring in every respect!
If the Ford is indeed launching the EcoSport next month the promotional activities on social media is expected to commence shortly. It is quite well evident that the EcoSport will avail the maximum advantage of the festive season. But the company has not yet confirmed the launch date and details of the vehicle whatsoever.
