Ford India has launched the alll-new EcoSport compact SUV and has priced it at Rs. 6.79 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) The new car retains the affirmative front-end but now gets revised head-lamps with day time running LEDs.

Though the upcoming car’s design and quantity remains largely unchanged, the list of other changes on the new EcoSport will include a refurbished design for the skid plate and 17-inch alloy wheels. Most importantly, the SUV will retain its ground-clearance of 200mm and the spare wheel mounted on the rear door. The cabin preserves the current model’s design, but sees the addition of a handful of new comfort and convenience features like the electrochromic mirror that automatically deflects a beam of light from trailing vehicles to minimise obstruction to drivers.2015-ford-ecosport-accessories-revealed-brazil
