Ford has launched the EcoSport Titanium+ Petrol with a 5-speed manual transmission at Rs 10.47 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). This means that you can now have the 123PS petrol EcoSport with features such as 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, side and curtain airbags, auto dimming rearview mirror, rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlamps, rearview camera and glove box illumination with a manual transmission instead of the 6-speed automatic transmission it was offered with initially.

The Petrol 6-speed AT is priced at Rs 11.3 lakhs, which means that the 5-speed manual is Rs 80,000 less expensive. The petrol engine in question here is Ford’s latest three-cylinder 1.5-litre Ti-VCT motor which produces 123PS of power and 150Nm of torque. The company also claims a 7 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions and a fuel efficiency of 17kmpl. The diesel option is also a 1.5-litre TDCi engine with 100PS/205Nm under its belly and a claimed fuel efficiency of 23kmpL.
