We Indians love SUV's but there are many who want a car with the looks and presence of an SUV but not the huge thirst for fuel, size, and not to mention the big costs involved in owning one. Ford was one of the first companies to cash on this demand from consumers in India, though it has now been joined by many other models in this segment from different manufacturers; a mid-life refresh should take care of things till the next model comes along sometime in the future. The design is muscular but also compact (it is sub-four metre SUV) and packs in a whole lot of details. The EcoSport which is based on the Fiesta platform is a shining example of the new Ford design language.

The beltine for example which is formed by the windows and door creases, draws an ascending curve that rises as it runs to the rear of the car. The large trapezoidal grille is another characteristic of the Ford design DNA which gives the signature Ford face, like the other new global designs. More interesting details include headlamp-integrated LED day-time running lamps, sharply-raked A-pillars and a short hood. At the back, a large rear window that wraps around to the sides along with oblique tail-lamps. The swing gate handle is built into the tail-lamp and is another highlight of the Ford EcoSport's innovative design. The spare tyre, with an exclusively designed wheel, is mounted on the swing-out door. Step inside and the design of the interiors are influenced by the Fiesta sedan which is a no bad thing.It has the sporty looking centre console with neatly stacked buttons.

The design and overall quality feel also has been improved. On the features front expect a lot of equipment on the EcoSport such as a CD/MP3 player, USB/auxiliary slots, steering controls, Smart Keyless Entry, rear parking sensors and Bluetooth. There is also the neat voice control feature, and Ford's Sync with AppLink system. The talking point in the EcoSport remains the 1.0-litre, three-cylinder EcoBoost engine which is economical and fun to drive, it develops 125 PS and 170Nm. The EcoSport features a 1.5 diesel 100 PS turbocharged diesel motor which is torquey and fun to drive, it is also very efficient. The EcoSport Petrol EcoBoost promises 18.9 kmpl while the diesel returns 22.3 kmpl which is fantastic. Other than these two engines the third engine is a 1.5-litre, naturally-aspirated 112PS petrol. There are five trim options: Ambiente, Tren, Trend+, Titanium and Titanium+.

Ford has priced it very well - from Rs. 6.80 Lakh to Rs. 10.44 Lakh, ex-showroom Delhi.

Interiors

Ford EcoSport Picture

The design of the interiors are influenced by the Fiesta sedan which is not a bad thing. It has the sporty looking centre console with neatly stacked buttons. The design and overall quality feel also has been improved. On the features front expect a lot of equipment on the EcoSport such as a CD/MP3 player, USB/auxiliary slots, cooled glove box, steering controls, Smart Keyless Entry, rear parking sensors, push button start and Bluetooth. There is also a cool thing called as SYNC which means you tell the system any functions or tasks to do and it will do it. Things like using your MP3 player with your voice, listening your texts, streaming music and of course hands free calling. Other features include auto-dimming inside rear-view mirror etc.

There is also the neat voice control feature. Even the base variants are decently equipped. Ford has also made the EcoSport practical with twenty storage spaces inside, 60:40 split rear seats and 346 ltrs trunk capacity. Despite the compact dimensions Ford has managed to squeeze out some room at the back and space is on par with rivals. There is decent legroom at the back and as we had found out the EcoSport is reasonably spacious.

What we like

Is funky and futuristic. and loaded with features

What we don't like

Design is showing its age

The swing gate handle is built into the tail-lamp and is another highlight of the Ford EcoSport's innovative design. The spare tyre, with an exclusively designed wheel, is mounted on the swing-out door. This design feature - a classic SUV cue - really makes the EcoSport stand out. The Ford EcoSport Titanium has 16-inch aluminium alloy wheels and a chrome grille.

What we like

Stylish

What we don't like

NA


Engine

The 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder diesel motor now develops 100PS/205Nm, the torque is developed over a wider rev-range which should improve pick-up and drvability. The 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder, turbocharged, EcoBoost petrol motor develops 125PS/170Nm, while the 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol motor develops 112PS/140Nm. All the motors are available with a 5-speed manual transmission as standard, while the 1.5-litre petrol motor is also available with a 5-speed dual-clutch transmission.

What we like

All engines are powerful-enough. The updated diesel engine suits the EcoSport's handling.

What we don't like

NA


Mileage

Diesel Mileage 22.27 kmpl
Petrol Mileage 15.85 kmpl

The diesel EcoSport has an ARAI-certified mileage of 22.3 kmpl while the 1.5 petrol EcoSport retuns 15.9 kmpl (manual) and 15.6 kmpl (auto). The 1.0-litre EcoBoost has an ARAI-rated efficiency figure of 18.9 kmpl. 

What we like

1.5-litre diesel motor is very efficient

What we don't like

The EcoBoost engine is not very efficient in the real world

Diesel Variants
1.5 TDCi Ambiente 22.27 kmpl
1.5 TDCi Trend 22.27 kmpl

Safety

Ford has also equipped the EcoSport with Hill Launch Assist which means that it stops the car from rolling back for a few seconds after you take your foot off the brake, giving you time to smoothly accelerate away. When it comes to safety the EcoSport has ABS+EBD, ESP and traction control plus dual front airbags and side curtain airbags which more than what its rivals offer.

What we like

Typical Ford - brilliant dynamics. Safety gets a major boost

What we don't like

NA


Comfort

The ride in the EcoSport is neither firm nor soft and is perfect. The electric steering is light and direct and the 10.6m turning circle means that this SUV is perfect for city driving. The 200 mm ground clearance is decent as well! Yet another peice of information is that the EcoSport has a water wading ability of 550mm.

What we like

Comfortable as well as firm ride

What we don't like

Refinement and ride over bad roads could have been better

Rise of The Crossovers

Posted On | | 796

The tale of the prolific rise of the crossover segment in India can be traced back to the launch of the Mahindra XUV500 and the Renault Duster. These two cars fit the definition of the crossover perfectly - vehicles which look like or have some traits of an SUV but are based on unibody car chassis. Essentially crossovers are jacked up hatchbacks...Read Full News

Ford Ecosport - 1.5 D Titanium

By Manish Bora Posted on 30 Sep 13, 07:21 PM

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Latest Technology, Solid body, Ford badging, Good safety reatures

Cons Average Fuel Efficiency,Hard suspension, View obstructed by the A and D pillars, Poor pickup, Throttle response is slow

Finally a vehicle from Ford stable which has changed motoring in India. Of course it was its predecessor Duster but the response received by Ecosport is tremendous. I had booked the same the very next day of the launch but could get the delivery only on Sept. I had to shell out around Rs. 45 K more which is still pinching me for having paid this revised rate. Of course a head turner and you will find people coming upto you and check out on the performance and pricing of the vehicle. * Packed with features for the price. * Well engineered. * As a new car the ride quality is good. * Excellent ground clearance * Powerful AC. * Voice command performance is pretty good * Poor average of 10.5 KMPL in city roads though being diesel. * Doesn't take on the pot holes well. Bumpy ride. * D Pillars block the rear view * A Pillars are blind spot at night and worst if you are driving at night and also raining. * Sad throttle response

For ecosportsuv that a middleclass can afford

By Vash Posted on 28 Sep 13, 10:29 PM

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Great Interiors,Fuel Efficiency,Comfort,

Cons ,A bit congested rear seats but not that bad.

Ford Ecosport has a dam cool exterior that everyone fall in love with,along with that it has such a aerodynamic design that reduces friction caused by air which helps in increasing the fuel efficiency.,interiors are also too good and there are a lot of features that you will find in sedan class.All in all a too good thing to buy in a comparatively lesser price brackets.
