Ford EcoSport auto transmission version spied!

It has been almost one year since the SUV enthusiasts in the Indian market are eagerly waiting for the launch of Ford EcoSport. The good news for Eco Sport lovers is that an automatic variant of the car recently caught testing, which has given force to the speculations that the company may include the automatic transmission variant as well in the line-up of EcoSport in India.

The latest spy pictures of the new EcoSport show a brand new design, while interior looks quite similar to new Fiesta global sedan of the company. The features that are reportedly could be made out of these spy shots include an automatic climate control and a dual airbags for driver and front passenger. It is expected that the company will rollout this model in the country early next year, where it will be competing with likes of Maruti Ertiga and Mahindra Xylo.

Ford India appears to be working hard on the Indian portfolio and I am a big fan of Ford cars. Ford displayed its new SUV, Ford EcoSport in the beginning of the year and literally the SUV took my breath away.
