Ford Ecosport : A new urban beast


Saw the ECOSTAR yesterday at a Pre-Launch in Hyderabad. Impressed by outer looks. Rear seat leg room is a cause of concern. But in Sub 4 mt vehicle, we have to live with it. Enquired about launch: Still No answer. Enquired about availability of a 4X4: Likely not was the answer.

Good competition for Duster.

Checked the car yesterday @ Inorbit Mall HYD. The Orange color of the car looks wicked :twisted:.

Though didn't like the overall stance. The aggressive front looks like a Pug to me, and the seats didn't seemed much comfortable.

Having driven Duster, Eco Sport looked quite small when you compare it with the Renault. and seemed like more of a DC design in flesh, though it looked very promising in print.

Eco Sport looks like a hatch back on steroids. Not much impressed with the overall package.

Cheers !!!

As per the latest info, petrol models will start from 5.8 lakhs and base diesel version will be priced around 6.8 lakhs, ex-showroom. However, equipment level on base versions will be pretty low. Top end diesel will be priced as high as 8.5 lakhs.
Quoting my own post -

4 Trims for 1.5 liter petrol - Ambiente, Trend, Titanium, Titanum with Option Pack - 6-6.5lacs to 8-8.5lacs
3 Trims for 1.5 liter diesel - Ambiente, Trend, Titanium - 7.5-8lacs to 9-9.5lacs
1 Trim for 1.0 liter Ecoboost Petrol - Titanium - 8-8.5 lacs.

Just opposite to my anticipation, even the base Ambiente will come with electric mirrors, central locking with remote, music player with aux and bluetooth, tilt and telescopic steering and multi-functional display. Surprisingly, it has only front power windows.

Trend will come with features of Ambiente plus rear power windows, anti-lock brakes, steering mounted audio controls and height adjustable driver's seat.

Titanium will come with leather-wrapped steering wheel, 16-inch alloy wheels, climate control, cooled glovebox, roof rails, front fog lamps, reverse parking sensor, and dual airbags.

Option pack includes - push-button start, leather seats, keyless entry, and side and curtain airbags as well.

Thanks Vikas, for wonderful information!
Are these prices ex-showroom or on-road?
And Delhi or Mumbai or elsewhere?
