The base Ambiente variant of the Ford EcoSport now comes with dual airbags making it a standard feature across all EcoSport models. Earlier, only the EcoSport's higher trim levels came with a driver and co-passenger airbag.

With this added feature, the prices of the SUV have climbed as well. The current Ambiente petrol version costs Rs 6,93,000, while the diesel is priced at Rs 7,60,000 (ex-showroom Delhi). Last month, the former was priced at Rs 6,92,900 and the latter at Rs 7,52,900. However, back then one could also buy the Ambiente petrol without airbags at Rs 6,75,000, and the corresponding diesel at Rs. 7,35,900. The revision in the prices of cars across their portfolio was made during the festive season. This is when they also updated the EcoSport's base variant with dual airbags.

Besides airbags, all the other features and powertrain options remain unchanged across the range and trim levels. As a result, the Ambiente still misses out on ABS and EBD, which comes in the Trend and higher variants. Then, the top-of-the-line Titanium and automatic trims continue to be equipped with six airbags.

The carmaker had launched the refreshed EcoSport for the Indian market last year. It was updated with new features and additional equipment, while the diesel version also benefitted from a horsepower hike. Now with added safety, Ford has even made the EcoSport’s base variants more appealing.
