Ford EcoSport SE
Ford EcoSport was the creator of the sub-compact SUV segment in India. The main difference of the new Ford EcoSport SE over the current variants will be the lack of a spare wheel at the rear of the car. It was also one of the few SUVs with side opening boot door. This may change with the Ford EcoSport SE. The number plate which is present on the rear bumper now will be placed on the middle of the tailgate on the new Ford EcoSport SE. The Ford EcoSport SE is a variant that is being launched in compliance with the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways amendment last year according to which any car which occupies 8 passengers in addition to the driver falls under the M1 category of vehicles.
Jeep is planning to assemble the Wrangler in India from 15 March. This will make the car cheaper than the current CBU route that this car takes. It will have no mechanical or cosmetic changes. What could change is the price. Currently it costs Rs 63,94,000 ex-showroom and this might go down drastically as the taxes on the import will cut down.
Jeep might give it some changes on the interiors like the new logo on the Jeep Compass and a some changes here and there on the dashboard. The 2.0 litre engine and the eight speed automatic gearbox will remain the same
