The ultimate Ford extravaganza, seems best in class
Pros : Efficient crossover engine, attractive price and rigid tough build
Cons : Will have to wait till it is out in the market
From the style and designing its looks like the classy American SUV, Ford Explorer but when it comes to its efficient 1.0 liter petrol and 1.5 liter diesel engines, I think that Ford Ecosport is an intelligently designed product meant to smash the Indian roads. Any car fanatic will compliment the upcoming Ford Ecosport for its amazing front bumper & grille graphics that compliments each other providing this SUV a luxury smart touch. The amazing roof-rails and side body colored claddings are other spotless factors of this car.
Although, I have not driven it, but after reading the entire engine description, I can say that the 1.0 liter petrol engine and 1.5 liter diesel engine would be its USP, as these low cubic capacity engine variants will have enough capacity to deliver a decent fuel economy. Ford Motors has been the badge for safety and reliability and this is what I feel, the Ford Ecosport is going to be. I think the company could have given more efforts to make Ford Ecosport sportier as the rear side of this car remains boxy.
I think that 8 – 9 lakhs would be the perfect price tag to sell this car on the Indian shores. Also, the company should offer 3 year or unlimited kilometer warranty to make this car a truly value for money SUV in the Indian market. In addition, the company should not compromise to load this car with all the exciting features like; ABS, EBD, Airbags, AC with Climate Control, Power Windows, Power Steering etc. Interiors too must have enough space to carry 5 passengers comfortably. As the hood of this car is quite extended, I am worried if this car will have good ground visibility or not.
