Due to the missing spare wheel, the crossover is likely to come equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) and a puncture repair kit.
Ford is gearing up to launch a new variant of the Ecosport. Dubbed the SE trim, it will come without a tailgate mounted spare wheel.
Spy images suggest that this new variant will look similar to the export-spec Ecosport. Due to the missing spare wheel, the crossover is likely to come equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) and a puncture repair kit. It is also likely to get a touchscreen infotainment system.
According to the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH), M1 category vehicles seating up to 9 occupants and weighing less than 3.5 tonnes need not be sold with a spare wheel under certain conditions.
The Ecosport SE is likely to be offered with the same engine options as the regular model. These include the BS6 compliant 1.5-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine rated at 120 BHP and 149 Nm and the updated 1.5-litre diesel engine developing 99 BHP and 215 Nm. The petrol engine is offered with a 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission while the diesel comes with a 5-speed manual gearbox.
