Being Android based, the infotainment system will get new functionalities.

The infotainment system in the Trend, Thunder, Titanium and Titanium+ variants of the Ford EcoSport will now run on Android 4.2.2 operating system.

The Android OS replaces the old WINCE operating system. Ford claims that the new operating system has significantly improved the performance of the head-unit.

Being Android based, the infotainment unit will now support Wi-Fi features like Over the Air (OTA) updates, enabling customers to upgrade the system software on their own. It will also provide live traffic updates for Offline MMI maps.

The infotainment system will now have conference call functionality. Users will be able to speak with up to 3 individuals at a time.

The VIN cut off for the aforementioned variants is LE46288, which suggests that cars manufactured in August 2020 onwards will get this upgrade.
