Kathmandu, March 12. Expanding choices & delivering what consumers want and value, Ford Nepal today introduced a brand-new variant to the EcoSport lineup, priced at NPR 47, 50,000/- for petrol variants.
Christened Ford EcoSport SE, the new variant features design cues borrowed from its American & European peers, where the compact SUV is sold without a rear-mounted spare wheel.
“Customers increasingly follow global benchmarks in design and look for things that are unique and distinctive, just like the new EcoSport SE,” said Vinay Raina, executive director, Marketing, Sales & Service at Ford India. “The SE carries forward EcoSport’s fun to drive credentials as well as its rich legacy of outstanding safety and best-in-segment technologies like SYNC 3.”
Apart from an elegantly designed tailgate and a new, dual-tone rear bumper that sports a silver applique, the SE variant retains EcoSport’s butch, robust appeal with a bold grille, 16-inch alloys and high ground clearance that enhance its SUV credentials.
Ford EcoSport SE comes with an easy to use puncture kit that will enable owners to repair tyre damage within minutes, without the hassle of removing the tyre from its slot.
Introduced in Titanium trim, the EcoSport SE carries forward the legacy of superior technology and connectivity with Ford’s renowned SYNC 3 infotainment system and Apple CarPlay.
The new EcoSport SE is being offered with Ford’s trusted 1.5L TiVCT petrol engine that delivers segment-best 122 PS of power & 149 Nm of torque. Those who prefer diesel can choose the EcoSport SE paired to Ford’s performance-leading 1.5L TDCi disel engine, delivering a peak power of 100 PS and peak torque of 215 Nm. Both the engines will be paired to Ford’s responsive and agile five-speed manual gearbox.
Adding to its list of accomplishments, Ford EcoSport was rated among the least expensive to maintain in its compact UV segment, by Autocar India in its 2020 Maintenance Report. In the report, Ford EcoSport maintenance cost remained among the lowest in the segment in duration of five-year ownership cycle.
Ford recently introduced the model year 2021 EcoSport lineup which continues to offer unmatched safety, connectivity & convenience.
