Ford New EcoSport Overview

The EcoSport, when it was launched in June 2013, looked like no other compact SUV we’d seen. Keeping in sync with Ford’s design language, the designers got in the right proportions for a car that’s just 4-metres in length

Ford New EcoSport Exterior

Now after 3.5 years, Ford has added a few things to the EcoSport such as new grille, new chrome housings for the fog lamps, new daytime-running lights and a new shade.


Ford New EcoSport Interior

The EcoSport’s cabin reminds one of the Fiesta’s, especially with the way the dashboard is laid out. Things are within the driver’s reach and easy to use. The seats are comfortable, even at the back. The EcoSport isn't a spacious five-seater – three in the backseat will be a squeeze.


Ford New EcoSport Driving

Though there’s a hike in the power figure, the torque figure remains the same (205Nm). It blends ride and handling brilliantly, giving you the best of both worlds – nice ride quality and agile and confident handling.


Ford New EcoSport Engine

With the facelift, Ford has increased the power output. Earlier, the one-and-a-half litre diesel engine was good for 90bhp. Now, it churns out 99bhp.


Ford New EcoSport Safety

 

The top-end variant of the EcoSport is loaded to the gills. The ‘Titanium’ variant gets auto headlamps and rain-sensing wipers, too. Gone are the days when you had to hit a lever to block the glaring lights of the cars behind you. The top-end variant also gets an auto-dimming interior rear-view mirror. Steering controls, automatic climate control, ABS and dual airbags have been carried over from the older version.


Ford New EcoSport Value

The updated EcoSport now starts at Rs 6.79 lakh for the base petrol version and goes up to Rs 11.07 lakh (both prices, ex-Delhi) for the top-end diesel version. Even with the 10 per cent addition in power, fuel efficiency hasn’t taken a plunge. It remains the same – 13kpl in the city and 17kpl out on the highway.


Ford New EcoSport Maintainence

The EcoSport is a good package for people looking for a car that’ll be the right size to fit into tight city spaces and will offer the stance of an SUV. When it comes to maintenance, be it scheduled service or original spare part, Ford strives to delight you by being surprisingly affordable.

When the EcoSport was launched, it was one of kind sub-4-meter compact SUV, but it sure now has lot of competitors like Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Honda WR-V, Mahindra TUV300, Fiat Avventura and to some extent with Renault Duster and Hyundai Creta.
