Ford EcoSport gets dual front airbags as standard

The EcoSport compact SUV from Ford has been a considerable contributor to the company’s sales in India. To stay upbeat with competition, the American automaker is offering the driver and front passenger airbag as standard across the EcoSport model. Ford India has also come up with a new commercial showcasing the safety element in the EcoSport.

The top-end spec EcoSport is loaded with six airbags and ABS with EBD. Under the hood, the car continues to be powered by 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engine options which generate 108bhp and 97bhp of power respectively. The EcoSport is also available with a 1.0-litre Ecoboost petrol engine which generates 121bhp of power. The compact SUV is available in manual and automatic gearbox options in India.

The new Ford EcoSport prices have been hiked by Rs 24,000 while the prices for other models from the Ford’s production line have been hiked by about Rs 7,000. It is to be seen if Ford will offer the ABS as standard in the EcoSport model in future. Apart from this, the company has not revealed any immediate plans to make dual front airbags as standard on its other models which are sold in India. However, we believe that with the 2017 safety norms coming soon, most automakers will have to focus on offering safety equipment as standard across their line up in the country.
