Ford EcoSport Review
The Ford EcoSport took the Indian market by storm when Ford announced the pricing of their sub-four-metre SUV. Undercutting its only competitor then, the Duster, the EcoSport offered the sedan buying Indian customer a taste of SUV life. And with the love we have for big cars, the success of the EcoSport did not come as a surprise at all. But, with the competition heating up, the EcoSport slowly started fading away. So now, with an upgraded engine and a slashed price tag, the EcoSport is renewing its fight for the compact crossover segment.
The EcoSport introduced Ford’s new face in the country. The wide gaping grille with swept back headlamps stacked high up gives the EcoSport its SUV appeal. The flared wheel arches on the side profile and the raked windscreen make it look sporty. The kinetic design continues to the side-hinged tailgate. It looks busy in a way and the 200mm ground clearance gives it the SUV stance.
The interior is in black and grey and looks premium especially with the blue backlit buttons on the centre console. The dashboard is has its curves and blends with the overall design of the car. The twin pod instrument cluster reads out all the vital information including fuel economy, distance to empty, average speed et al along with the car and engine speeds. It gets automatic climate control for the top-spec variant along with height adjustable driving seats. The top-end trim gets six airbags for safety along with ABS while the mid variant gets dual front airbags and ABS.
The EcoSport gets three engine options – the 1.0-litre EcoBoost, the 1.5-litre petrol and the 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel. The 1.5-litre diesel has now been re-tuned to develop 99bhp of power and 205Nm of torque from the earlier 89bhp of power output. The four cylinder turbocharged diesel comes mated to a five-speed manual gearbox and drives the front wheels. The 110bhp 1.5-litre Ti-VCT four cylinder petrol engine gets two gearbox options – the five-speed manual and the six-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. The 1.0-litre EcoBoost is the most powerful of the three at 124bhp of power and 170Nm of torque from 1400rpm and comes with a five-speed manual gearbox.
The EcoSport competes with the Maruti Suzuki VitaraBrezza, the Mahindra NuvoSport and the TUV300 in the sub-four-metre compact SUV segment. It also has the Hyundai i20 Active and the Fiat Avventura in its competitor list.
