While Yellow-colored EcoSports were spotted testing in India, the company did not introduce this color.

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.
