Better than a hatch

Look and Style: Concept looks amazing, but when it come to the production model it seems a little odd at certain angles.  Comfort: You can expect the same comfort or better than the Fiesta. Pickup: Considering the weight of the vehicle(under 1400kgs) and the torque(170Nm at low rpm) expect a very solid pickup and early upshifts. Mileage: They mention its close to 20kmpl. Best Features: 6-speed dual clutch auto transmission which is like first in its class as well as in the Fiesta in India. The Fiesta already boasts about its ten years/2,40,000km warranty. I was expecting the same in the Ecosport, or you can say wishing for it. Needs to improve: Options like sunroof, trip computer(average fuel, eco driving light, records mileage, etc.)  LED lights, all time running lights, more airbags(at least 6).  Overall: A very nice upgrade from a hatch. City driving should be a breeze with the driving height. A very nice primary car for work, pleasure and fast trips to the supermarket, paying your bills, picking your friends to the sports clubs for a game of football, etc. Please don't compare to the XUV 500. It's not in the same class(Mid-size SUV). The  Ecosport is a C-SUV(compact sports utility vehicle).

Dude i know what your talking about Xuv500 is heavy vehicle not to mention its bad fuel economy for city... But i will buy both cuz i need a car that can carry my family too.. and those occasional trips to my native place with huge loads of cargo space needed for 5 people. XUV 500 is best as a secondary car..!!!!

i dont think XUV 500 or ecosport have to worry cuz i think in the seven seater segment XUV 500 is the winner here and in the compact hatch and compact sedan class ecosport is a good alternative..!!

    Renault Duster is another competition to the ecosport but it does not offer safety features as standard and there is no technological advancements as compared to the ecosport. The duster's engine is not the best here. Standard transmission auto/manual. nothing really exiting to talk about here. Oh.. and the looks.. well i doubt the french are proud with this car. i dont think even they buy it.!! :P
