1.0L EcoBoost Makes A Comeback In The Ford EcoSport

The tiny 3-cylinder engine has been plonked in the new top ‘EcoSport S’ variant.

 

When the updated EcoSport was introduced in November last year, Ford skipped putting its small 3-cylinder EcoBoost turbo petrol motor in the engine bay. But now the engine has been reintroduced in a new top-end ‘EcoSport S’ variant of the company’s popular compact SUV.

 

The 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder EcoBoost produces 121-bhp and 170-Nm of torque and is paired with a new 6-speed manual transmission. The new transmission is slicker and offers precise gearshifts says Ford India. The ARAI rated mileage figure is 18.1 km/l claims the company.

 

The 1.0-litre EcoBoost had always been an enthusiast’s choice and its reintroduction along with a slicker 6-speed MT will only enhance the EcoSport’s appeal further. Also Ford has kept the vehicle worthy of the sporty ‘S’ tag with the engine and not just some sticker job on the exterior. There are reports that Ford has also tinkered with the suspension and steering tuning on the EcoSport S and will surely let you know when we confirm.

 

Besides the engine the EcoSport S also comes with a few cosmetic enhancements like a blacked out grille, black painted roof and roof rails, and 17-inch smoke alloy wheels. It also gets smoked HID headlamps and black fog-lamp bezel. On the inside there are orange accents on the seats, instrument panel and the centre console. Ford has also fitted the EcoSport S with a bigger 4.2-inch digital MID in the instrument cluster and also a tyre pressure monitoring system.

 

The EcoSport S comes fully loaded with features like the SYNC 3 infotainment system with the 8-inch touchscreen, 6-airbags and a new powered sunroof. The EcoBoost available at an ex-showroom price of ₹ 11.37 lakh, but if you prefer the 1.5-litre diesel engine (99bhp/205Nm, 5-MT) it too is available for ₹ 11.89 lakh.
