Ford EcoSport 4WD Powershift AT unveiled

Brazil is the land of Ford Ecosport and it is here that the American car was born and bloomed. It is from here that the car maker has taken it to far off lands, and it is here that that Ford EcoSport with 4WD Powershift AT has been displayed. It is believed that after the immense success of the Ford Fiesta AT, the car manufacturer will be doing its best to launch the AT version of Ecosport in India as well. Initially, it was believed that Ford could drop the AT from introducing it in the Indian line up. But as soon as the Fiesta AT demand shot up, the car giant seems to have realized that the automatic cars really have a future in India. The Ecosport is one of the most anticipated cars in India since January 2012 and it is believed that it will be priced around Rs 8 lakh to Rs 8.5 lakh.

The 85 PS Diesel trim is already sold out and the 115 PS version is available. Now that it is said that the Ecosport will be launched soon.
