Ford India has introduced a new automatic variant of its compact SUV EcoSport, at a price of Rs. 10.66 Lakh (Ex-Showroom Delhi). The new Ford EcoSport Titanium AT trim offers six-speed, torque converter automatic gearbox that is paired to Ford’s latest, Bharat Stage 6 compliant three-cylinder 1.5L petrol engine. Like the other automatic Titanium+ trim, the new Titanium variant in the 2020 lineup will also be a performance leader, delivering 122 PS of power and 149 Nm of peak torque.
“With the new Titanium trim in the 2020 EcoSport line-up, we wish more consumers to enjoy the convenience of an automatic without compromising on the fun-of-driving. The outstanding value on offer will ensure that consumers no longer settle for underwhelming automatic technologies available in the market,” said Vinay Raina, executive director for Marketing, Sales and Service at Ford India.
Besides the outstanding performance, the new EcoSport Titanium Automatic offers several other features including segment-first paddle shifters, cruise control, push start/stop for greater convenience. The variant offers a superior technology with a touchscreen infotainment system with embedded navigation, as well as superior safety with standard dual airbags, traction control system, electronic stability control and hill launch, assist among other features. The new variant will also be the only automatic compact SUV in its price range to offer globally-renowned mobility and connectivity solution FordPassTM, a one-stop smartphone app meeting diverse ownership needs, at no additional cost.
With a factory-fitted cloud-connected device, owners of the new Titanium trim will be able to perform several vehicle operations — like starting, stopping, locking or unlocking remotely, via the FordPass app. Ford is accepting bookings for new vehicles via a dedicate online portal, www.booking.india.ford.com.

Ford EcoSport owners spend as low as Rs. 1,400 for scheduled service in the first year while the 100,000-KM or 10-year service is surprisingly affordable at just Rs. 4,700.
