Ford motors has been producing cars in India from a very long time and it has been quite a successful venture. Today with the production of many cars such as the Ford ecosport and many other products has not stopped it from being known as one of the best carmakers.
Ford ecosport since its launch has been a successful car. It is packed with features and comes with great comfort. The car performs well too considering the Indian conditions.
The car comes with chunky everything. The design is infact compact but made to look a big SUV that is aggressiveness and bold stance. The front portion looks bulky with a nice touch by the grill that has wavy section covered with two vertical lines which has chrome finish and all together bound by the boundary line covered in chrome. The fog lamps looks like a hawk eye with its sharp structure. It is placed well above the usual spot for fog lamps.The DRL, head lamps flows with the front portion of the car. The headlights are swiped back a little to look large like in a proper SUV. The A-pillar continues to extend till the bonnet making it look like a single piece. I have to indeed say the car has good finish. The fenders bulges out a little to make the car look wide. There is plastic cladding in the bottom in the sides which adds onto its SUV personality. The rear of the car holds the spare tyre which adds to the character of the car. The tail light has uniqueness because the rear door handle is integrated within the tail lights and it too is covered in chrome. The bottom section has plastic cladding seen around rest of the car. It has integrated lights too. The diamond cut alloy wheels add to its charm.
The interior is just fascinating with fresh designs from Ford. The body colour continues to be seen in the interior too, on the dashboard. The dashboard is made to feel good with the plastics which are of good quality. There is touchscreen infotainment system with android auto and apple carplay. The seats are covered in leather as well as fabric. The steering wheel feels chunky and has controls mounted onto it. There is automatic climate control and the dials are new. There is push start button which adds on to its features list.
The suspension setup is great for the Indian roads. The ride quality is good and makes the car stand a class apart. The competitors definitely feel the heat due to the cars overall quality. The engine comes in different types which are 1.0litre ecoboost petrol which is 125PS and gives out 18.1km/litre and is mated to a manual transmission. Then comes the 1.5 litre Ti- VCT petrol engine and finally the 1.5litre TDCI diesel engine. All the engines are responsive and great in refinement so its hard to pick one. The diesel version provides good amount of torque and total output. The torque is just right. The car is easy to handle and takes on tight corners. There is no much body roll.
Rain sensing wipers, sunroof, conquer blue seat stitching, 6 airbags and more.
9.46 lakhs to 14.8 lakhs
One of the best car in its segment. Good quality finish and all round performance but the pricing is just too high comparing its rivals.
