Ford Ecosport all-wheel-drive spotted doing rounds in World! The C-SUV will be exported globally

Recently an all-wheel-drive Ford Ecosport was spotted testing in Coimbatore. The car spotted featured left-hand drive (LHD) and is mostly doing test rounds for the export market. It will be a locally built car for the global market.

The front fascia of the Ecosport looks identical to its front wheel design (FWD) with the same alloy wheels. It gets disc brakes on all tyres. Inside, it gets the same floating infotainment touchscreen system which supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Moving on to the rear profile, the compact SUV is deprived of the tailgate-mounted spare wheel.

Ford Ecosport shown here is in its SE trim and the all-wheel drive variant is only sold in Brazil and the UK. In Brazil, a 2.0-litre petrol motor is available which churns out 169 bhp with 203 Nm of torque. It gets mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

The SE variant which has been spied comes only with a 1.5-litre petrol engine which gets mated to a 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission.

Currently, Ford Ecosport thunder edition has been spied at a dealership which is expected to launch soon in Worldn markets. The sub-4-metre compact SUV receives subtle changes on the exterior and interiors. Reports suggest that no changes under the hood have been made so far.

The exterior of the car packs twin-slat grille with wraparound headlamps which have L-shaped LED DRL’s. It also gets a black wrap on some part of the bonnet and the car receives black treatment on the mesh grille and in the headlamps.

The black treatment moves forward to the B-pillar of the car and onto the roof too. The wing mirrors receive an all-black treatment along with black alloy wheels. The interior will remain more or less the same and we could expect the orange and black seats as in the picture.

In World, Ford Ecosport is available in three engine options, two petrol and one diesel in particular. The diesel engine sources its power from 1.5-litre turbocharged motor which generates 99bhp along with 200Nm of peak torque. It gets mated to 5-speed manual transmission.
