Ford India went aggressive in terms of marketing about their vehicles and that has started reflecting in the consumers' mindset about the brand.
Dealership are mindful about the client's preference and are courteous enough with accepted levels of understanding and service.
The vehicle I choose over Honda City V cvt, Honda WRV, Verna and opted for EcoSport only because of its ground clearance,,a decent engine and all the bells and whistles it's comes with (Titanium + Variant)
Vehicle drives well on the tarmac surfaces with outstanding stability in straight line, throw it in corner and the weight 1300kgs+ shows its signs.... Lot of body roll and under steering..... Fortunately Traction control, ESP and EBD helps in keeping the vehicle in control. Progressive braking is something which takes some time to get used to...
Engine Anti stall feature helps on climbs but becomes scary in traffic as it start powering the wheels as soon as it detects a stall. ( Engine and electronics I am just braking to keep the distance from the car ahead plz don't power up now )
Coming to worst side of the Vehicle.... 17inches and poor shock absorbers.... Ride quality is poor every little bump lump line crack and everything you call it is felt inside....and is felt in a sharp manner
Servicing and maintenance is good in terms of satisfaction and average in terms of cost. Guess it's too early to say but till now it is good.
Verdict - Good for a family of 4, Diesel is efficient, ride quality is poor with 17 inches and a bit hard with 16inches.
If possibility of a stretch in budget go for Creta 1.6 Diesel.
If you don't venture into the uneven paths and no tarmac or layered areas .. go for City petrol.
Overall an ok vehicle but needs a lot of improvement in ride quality.
Happy Motoring !
