Fabulous American breed off-roader
Pros : Powerful and fuel efficient engine
Cons : So-so looks
Well I am one of the craziest fans of SUVs, especially the American breed crossovers, though, I own a Fiesta classic, I am intending to buy a crossover in coming 10 months. Surprisingly, Ford motors, my favorite car maker is going to introduce Ford Ecosport this year. So I am kinda fleet on this car and expecting it to be somewhat calibrating like its big brother Ford Endeavour. No doubt it is expected to have a one liter engine but its 120 PS power seems to be extreme.
As the size is bit compact, I can expect that it will have five seats, but I think the dimensions of this car look really pretty capacious. Expectations are that it will have enough leg-room and head-room. Furthermore, all the Ford cars i.e. from Ford Figo to Ford Endeavour have been blessed with fine quality interiors therefore Ecosport too might have the classy upholstery and dash board inside it. I think that company could have made the design of Ford Ecosport sportier. In pics the rear and the front hood design looks bit boxy. The main point of consideration for me as a buyer would be the price. The approx price shows that Ford Ecosport is going to be launched around Rs. 7 lakh. If launched at this price, I would say that Ecosport is surely going to be a threat for other utility cars like Tata Safari, Mahindra Scorpio, Chevrolet Tavera etc.
As far as features are concerned, I would say that the features are not yet been told, but yet I expect that this car will have all the features like Power Steering, Power Windows, ABS, Central Locking, CD player etc. All in all, I would say that the upcoming Ecosport can be the best partner for me, but prior purchase I would love to test drive it whenever it will be launched.
