Added to the existing 1.0-litre Ecoboost petrol engine option is a new 1.5-litre Ecoblue diesel that produces 123bhp. From mid-2018 onwards, Ford will also add a 99bhp version of its Ecoboost three-pot to sit below the 123bhp and 138bhp versions in the line-up.
Like before, the Ecosport gets a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearbox.
A new ST-Line trim has been added to the mix, with 17in alloy wheels, ST-Line badging and a leather interior standard. The car is also available with larger 18in wheels.
New for the updated car is Sync3 infotainment, which is incorporated in an 8in touchscreen that features Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity.
The car also features adaptive cruise control and blind spot assist technology, to boost its driver assistance abilities.
No pricing has been released for the new car, which goes on sale later this year, but no major changes are expected from the outgoing car’s £15,645 opening figure.
