Ford India has teased the upcoming Ford EcoSport update on Facebook. The car was previously spied by a TeamBHP member and it is expected to be launched soon. Recently, Nigel Harris, Ford India’s President and Managing Director, commented that the updated EcoSport will be made available to customers before Christmas.

The spied car features a new color scheme, which Ford calls ‘Golden Bronze’. In addition to the subtle cosmetic updates, the new car will also feature upgraded mechanics. The car is expected to be offered with the same power-plant that was previously seen in the Aspire and the recently launched Figo.

The engine will deliver 100 PS in terms of power output and 215 Nm of torque. The car will also come with additional upgraded features and the Titanium variants are expected to get automatic headlights and wipers. The new EcoSport will also come with a 4-inch color display that will act as a display for the reversing camera and will be paired to the SYNC infotainment system.

Ford will probably take the same approach it took with the Ford Aspire and Figo in terms of safety and will offer the base variants with driver airbags and maybe dual-front airbags also. The 1.0-liter EcoBoost petrol engine will be carried forward into the Ford EcoSport update and the car might also feature the 1.5-liter Ti-VCT petrol power-plant.
