  1. It is bad that Ford didn’t launch the new 2017 Ecosport, instead updating the existing model may have lost few customers like me (now booked the Elite i20) who are waiting for the face lifted 2017 model. These minor updates are just too boring and seems to be targeting the Vitara Brezza (just another low quality) & not thinking about the Ecosport’s proven capacity of selling numbers. The launch of 2017 Ecosport would have frozen Brezza in their factories …. lol.

  2. I don’t understand reason behind launching this platinum edition instead of launching new ford ecosport. As Indian buyers will not be ready to pay Rs.70000 more just for touchscreen infotainment . Ford has to rethink its strategy if they really want to maintain its market share.

  3. Great updates , Touchscreen infotainment system ,Reverse parking camera , Cruise control , Navigation , DVD Player , Black roof ,New 17 inch Diamond Cut alloy. I just buy ford Ecosport titanium plus in August , i am ready to spend 70000 extra for these additional features. will miss all these features in my Ecosport.

  4. Ford hasn’t confirmed the exact date yet. But the launch will take place before or during the Festive Season this year.
