I am planning to buy EcoSport but want to wait for updated 2017 model, what will be the new features in updated model? How to sync Google Map in mobile with car screen? What is estimated maintenance cost? What is the service schedule and whether updated model will have 1 liter or 1.5 liter engine?

The 2017 EcoSport is expected to feature a thoroughly re-stylish interior and exterior to enhance its aesthetic appeal, majority of the upgrades will include modifications done towards the front and the rear facia of the vehicle while the rest of the design language will remain the same, instead of bi-color tone interior it is expected to come in black color, the centre console will be completely restyled to feature a more mature and contemporary look, will also have updated multi-functional steering wheel and touch screen multimedia system which will also allow connectivity to smart phones,. New steering wheels will get mounted controls but expected to get the same engine line-up as that of present models, 1.5 and 1.0 liter petrol engines and same 1.5 TDSi diesel engine.
You ask about Google Map display, for that sync system can be used to mirror phone’s apps on the screen, when connected via bluetooth you can simply touch the display to open apps like Google Maps etc.
Recommended service schedule for Ford EcoSport is: First Service @ 2500 kms or 3 months, then on every 10,000 kms or 12 months whichever is earlier. As per user reviews general maintenance cost of the petrol model of EcoSport is Rs. 5000-6000 while of Diesel model is Rs. 6,000-7000 which includes engine oil, oil filter, gasket change, air and fuel filter, coolent replacement, wheel alignment & balancing, labour cost etc, spare parts charges extra.
