Ford has been testing the EcoSport around India since late 2012, a car with a dealer label was spotted in Mumbai and some dealers went as far as taking an advance from interested customers.

The special edition, keeping the mechanical kit in tact, could sport badges and other cosmetic touches.

We’ll bring the action live from the Figo’s birthday party so stick around with
