Ford EcoSport Active with a rugged bodykit revealed

Unlike the EcoSport Storm, the Active does not come with all-wheel drive.

Ford has revealed the EcoSport Active for the European market. The crossover gets a rugged bodykit and raised suspension.

The EcoSport Active features black plastic cladding around the wheel arches and along the door sills. It gets black inserts on the front fascia, black ORVMs and roof rails as well as a black rear bumper to add to that rugged look. Unlike the EcoSport sold in India, this car doesn't get a tailgate mounted spare wheel. Apart from the cosmetic changes, the suspension has been raised slightly.

The EcoSport Active gets black interiors with leather upholstery. Just like the regular version, it has a floating touchscreen infotainment head-unit.

In Europe, the EcoSport Active is offered with 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine options. Both engines come with a 6-speed manual gearbox.

Similar rugged version of the EcoSport is also available in the South American market, where it is called the EcoSport Storm. It is powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine that can also run on ethanol. More importantly, the EcoSport Storm gets all-wheel drive.
