Owing to an increase in competition, the 2016 Ford Ecosport will be priced Rs. 1.12 lakh lesser than the old model. The price cut comes after Maruti Suzuki launched their Vitara Brezza in the country- already raking in more than 20,000 bookings. With this slash, the popular Ecosport is now priced almost 30,000 INR lesser than the Brezza, which should keep things competitive in the segment.
Note that the Brezza is only available in diesel and the above price gap is between petrol variant of the Ford Ecosport and base diesel variant of the Vitara Brezza. The base diesel trim of the Ecosport is priced Rs. 28,000/- over the Brezza.

Apart from the price, the 2016 Ford Ecosport receives minor cosmetic updates with the addition of a Trend+ trim- for both petrol and diesel.
Mechanically the Ambiente, Trend and Titanium petrol trims are powered by the same 1.5-litre Ti-VCT mill producing 110bhp @ 6,300rpm and 140Nm @ 4,400rpm. The new Trend+ and the existing Titanium+ variants get the 1.0-litre Ecoboost, producing 123.37bhp @ 6,000rpm and 70Nm @ 1,400rpm to 4,500rpm. The biggest change here is the 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine, which is now higher tuned to produce 99bhp @ 3,750rpm and 205Nm @ 1,750rpm – 3,250rpm. Transmission duties continue to be done by 5-speed manual and 6-speed PowerShift dual-clutch (only for petrol Titanium) units.
