Ford has subtly updated the EcoSport on the whole, but it is the front profile that seems to have gone under the knife the most. The front fascia now features a chunkier chrome grille – a design element that’s in line with the other SUVs by the Blue Oval, such as the Edge.

A dab on the throttle gets it moving quite nicely, and when driven like this, it is quite adept at mixing it with other traffic.

Ask for a bit more acceleration however and the engine’s lack of oomph in the mid-range comes through.

What makes matters worse is that the gearbox is sometimes reluctant to downshift and that further accentuates the problem.

Though the headlamps feature a profile similar to the current version, they look bulky and incorporate projector plus halogen lighting. And this time around, the indicators are placed lower in the fog lamp housing. There are no changes to the sides of the vehicle, save for the new set of alloys.

At the rear, the tail lamps are largely unchanged, but the American version of the EcoSport will not sport the mounted spare wheel. The outgoing EcoSport in the European market currently comes with a similar option. The Indian facelifted EcoSport, in all probability, will continue to feature the mounted spare wheel when the facelift goes on sale.

its a overall good package in this segment . its value for money product.
