Spied – Bright Yellow Ford EcoSport caught testing near Chennai
Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
The Ford EcoSport was caught testing once again and this time it was wearing the Bright Yellow color which debuted on the facelifted Ford Figo.
The car was spotted testing in Chengalpattu near Chennai by Mr. Jelliffe Jaganathan, a forum member of Gearheads.in. The Bright Yellow exterior color option is not available in Brazil or China and is exclusive to India.
The hue may polarize opinions, but we think it certainly looks sporty. The test mule has alloy wheels suggesting that it is a high end Titanium variant but there is no clue about what’s lurking under the yellow fellow’s hood.
Ford India has been testing the EcoSport mules (and in the process testing the prospective owners’ patience) since a few months. Ford India officials have repeatedly stated that the EcoSport will be here in the early part of 2013 but declined to be more specific.
The EcoSport is expected to be offered with one diesel engine and two petrol engine options. The 1.5 litre petrol and diesel motors from the Fiesta sedan will be joined by the tech laden 1.0 EcoBoost turbo petrol motor which won the coveted ‘International Engine of the Year 2012’ award.
