Ford India has unveiled a new varient in its EcoSport line up, while reducing the prices of the compact SUV across the range to make it more competitive. This has come about courtesy increased localisation and the range now begins at Rs 7,69,000 and goes upto Rs 11,33,000 for the top spec EcoSport S, a drop of Rs 14,000 and Rs 57,400 respectively.
Meanwhile, the Thunder edition will be available with the 1.5L TiVCT Petrol MT or the 1.5L TDCi Diesel MT engine under the ‘Titanium’ variant. It costs Rs 10.18 lakhs for the petrol variant and 10.68 lakhs for the diesel variant (both prices ex-showroom). The petrol variant has 121.3bhp of power and claims a fuel efficiency number of 17kmpl, while the diesel variant has 98.6bhp of power and claims a fuel efficiency number of 23kmpl. The Thunder Edition is styled more aggressively and sportily – it has dark inserts on the headlamps and blacked out fog lamp bezels. It comes shod with 17-inch alloy wheels continuing the dark theme that is seen across the exterior of the compact SUV. It also gets a blacked out grille, wing mirrors and a dual tone bonnet. The same sporty treatment is given to the interiors as well. Some elements of the interior like the front seat door inserts and the centre console and the instrument panel sport cognac accents. The infotainment system on the car is an updated 9-inch one with a floating touch screen, embedded navigation and smart connectivity. The car also has an electric sunroof which was first witnessed in last year’s EcoSport.
