Ford should price EcoSport a little low
Pros : Good looks, sporty appearance
Cons : Pricey in comparison to other compact SUVs
I have been reading a lot about the new compact SUV from Ford, EcoSport ever since it was displayed at the Auto Expo 2012. The information available on internet suggests that the compact SUV will be priced around Rs 9 lakh which according to me is a bit too much for a compact SUV when its contemporaries are offered at a much lower price.
Also Ford will be inducting a new engine in the SUV which it claims to be sturdy enough but then only time will tell whether the engine is mighty or not. The diesel engine would be a better option than the petrol trim as it will be more frugal and economic to use, but speculations suggest that the company will launch the petrol version first. Maruti is also developing a new compact SUV, Maruti XA Alpha and Maruti cars are known for its low maintenance let’s see if EcoSport will sustain the competition or not.
