Ford will launch the mid-cycle update of the EcoSport in the country today. It made its world debut in the US in November last year and the US-spec EcoSport will be exported from India. The Ford EcoSport facelift comes after more than four years since the nameplate was introduced in the country. 

The prices of the updated EcoSport are likely to remain more or less the same, check our expected price article here. The thoroughly updated sub-4m SUV will go head-to-head against the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, the TUV 300, the Honda WR-V and the recently launched Tata Nexon
