Ford EcoSport

FYI, the EcoSport will be made available in as much as 10 different variants with three engine options- 1.0-litre EcoBoost Petrol, 1.5-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel engine. There will also be an automatic variant. The smallest yet most powerful and promising 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine powered version is likely to be priced the highest among all. Despite being a 3-cylinder, 1.0-litre engine, the EcoBoost promises to churn out the maximum power output of around 120bhp, 170Nm torque, while returning a superb fuel efficiency of around 18kmpl. Amazing isn’t it? The other two engines- 1.5L petrol and 1.5L diesel are the same doing their duty to the Ford’s flagship sedan Fiesta as well.
