Limited to 70 units.
Ford has launched a special edition version of the EcoSport in Japan. Limited to 70 units only, the vehicle comes with a new Bright Yellow paint, and is priced at 2,530,000 Yen, which equates to INR 13.32 lakhs.
Powered by a 1.5-litre petrol unit (as seen on the vehicle in India) that makes 110 hp at 6,300 rpm and 140 Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm, the EcoSport Bright Yellow comes with a dual-clutch 6-speed automatic ‘Powershift’ gearbox.
It measures 4,195 mm in length (slightly longer than the EcoSport sold in India), 1,765 mm in width, and 1,655mm in height. The special edition version can be specced with outside mirrors and spare wheel cover in any colour (from a range of six).
Available in the Titanium trim, features such as dual airbags, EBD, ABS, ESP and Traction control are available. On the inside, there’s a 6-speaker entertainment system complete with Ford’s SYNC support. Leather seats are also standard on the special edition version.
While India is yet to see such a special edition version, Ford showcased a customised EcoSport in Thailand last year while it also launched Sport theme accessories for the crossover in Brazil.
