Spied – IAB reader clicks the Ford EcoSport AT inside out
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 is waiting for the company’s pre-launch marketing campaign to conclude.
The mini SUV is on a tour to 12 important cities across the country where it will be displayed in the shopping malls over the weekends. The prospective customers can now go and check out the car but have to wait for about 45 days in order to know the price or book one.
Apart from showcasing the car in the malls, Ford also has kick started the EcoSport Urban Discoveries contest expected to run through the month of May.
Meanwhile, we bring you the exclusive spyshots of the Ford EcoSport AT. Our email feed subscriber Mr. Mohan, has sent us these elaborate spyshots of the interior and exterior of the car. It is to be noted that the automatic variant of the EcoSport has not been showcased at malls yet.
As you can see from the pictures, the gear selector is finished in black. The interior has black and grey dual tone finish with black seats. Considering that the AT variant will be the top of the line petrol model, a dual tone beige interior could have gone a long way in improving the appeal.
The hi-tech Powershift dual clutch automatic transmission is available only with the 1.5 litre petrol engine. The 1.0 litre EcoBoost petrol engine and the 1.5 litre diesel engine will be available only with manual transmissions.
