This car is discontinued
||Titanium 1.5L Ti-VCT
||Have driven a few thousands kilometres
1. Buying Experience - I have purchased ford ecosport titanium petrol manual transmission from Modern Ford Alwar. Overall experience was good as all staff were supportive and the key was given by Sales Manager.
2. Riding Experience - Initially I was hesitant to buy 3 cylinder petrol motors as I felt that there will be more vibrations in that, but after taking the test drive it is almost similar to 4 cylinder engine, there is no vibration at all in this engine and it is as good as 4 cylinder engine. You can do a city riding easily in 3rd gear without shifting any gears as this car has higher torque.
3. Looks, Performance - Look wise this car is better then it's rivals say both Vitarra Brezza and Nexon. The DRL along with chrome grill gives it's a unique and macho look.Performwise it is a powerful car, you will get 100 kmph at 2750 rpm and 80 kmph at 2000 rpm. I touched it to 160 kmph in highways and believe me it was so stable and gives me confidence that my decision for purchasing this car was correct. I am getting a mileage of 16-17 in highways and 13-14 in mild city traffic. As in my city the difference between petrol and diesel is only 3, So buying a petrol motor was worth it.
Service & Maintaice - Have done first service and believe me it's service cost is less then even Maruti Suzuki DZire.The maintaince cost of this car is 28000 for 6 years or 60000 km.
Pros & Cons : At this price point of view it's value for money . Earlier my plan was to purchase Hyundai Creta but that was 3 lakh more costlier then this. Now I feel that my decision is right as I will have all the features as that of creta. The plus point above crear is that this is more efficient then creta. Another plus point is it's built quality, Ford uses Boron Steel in the complex areas which is four times stronger then normal steel. Notice the sound when you close the door of this car and you will know how much better built quality this car has.
The only con I found in this car is that rear passenger seat space is less as compared to rivals. For 3 persons , it is difficult to do a long journey but at this point of price it is really a VFM car.
Just go to ford dealership boom a test drive and then take decision , you will never regret after purchasing this car
