The report also suggests that this hike could be a fixed price for all the models. The carmaker was supposed to increase the prices of the new Endeavour back in the month of May. Nevertheless, due to the current situation, the hike has been delayed for a while. One can expect the prices of the SUV to be increased by Rs 70,000 across all the trims. Despite getting the BS6 update, the carmaker decreased the prices of all of its models. However, that came with a major drawback as well. Ford Figo, Aspire and Freestyle miss out on a lot of features.

Talking about Ford Figo and Aspire, both the models miss out features like automatic headlights, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, rain-sensing wipers, and rear seat armrest. On the other hand, EcoSport gets a decent price hike and continues to retain all the features. Moreover, the automaker has also stopped offering the automatic trims with Figo and Aspire. Both the cars were offered with a 1.5-litre gasoline mill that was exclusively reserved for an automatic transmission. However, Freestyle was never offered with an automatic gearbox. Although, the entry-level Ford models, which were not offered with an AT discouraged a lot of potential buyers.
