Ford India in addition to the existing lineup of the Ecosport has added a new top-spec variant to its petrol model in the Indian market. The new 2018 Ford EcoSport Titanium+ petrol with a manual gearbox is priced at Rs 10.47 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Rahul Gautam, vice president marketing at Ford India, says that the introduction of the new variant comes on the back of customer demand for a fully loaded petrol manual model. The introduction of the Ford EcoSport Titanium+ Petrol MT also helps bridge the massive price gap between the Titanium Petrol MT (INR 9.51 lakhs) and Titanium+ Petrol AT (INR 11.31 lakhs).
In the Titanium+ spec, additional features over the Titanium grade include 17-inch alloy wheels and 6 airbags. Other notable features on offer are projector headlamps, LED DRLs, 8-inch touchscreen for the SYNC3 infotainment setup, tyre pressure monitor, cruise control, reverse parking camera, automatic headlamps and more.

The three-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol mill produces 123hp at 6,500rpm and 150Nm at 4,500rpm and is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. Ford also sells the same engine mated to a six-speed torque-convertor automatic equipped with paddle shifts.
