Pros : looks, ride

Cons : price, engine


If Ford thinks it can sell the EcoSport SUV at any price above the Rs 7 lakh mark, then It is mistaken and is going to get an unpleasant surprise. Mahindra XUV500 is priced at Rs 12.2 lakh and proves to be a worthy competitor for cars both below and above its category. Ford needs to rethink its pricing strategy if it really wants to sell a 1.0-litre engined SUV. Having said That, I would like to add that the exterior and interiors of this car are the best in its class as Maruti Suzuki is a poor and distant threat.

    clearly u have no idea about ecoboost.. underpowered.?? i dont think so..!! Rs 7-9 lakhs.. hmm.. its rightly priced for a foreign car maker... Also XUV isnt in the same class as ecosport.. ecosport is a CUV(compact utility vehical) if u ask me ecosport is a bargain.. its a good replacement for small sized hatch..!!! awesome in the city..!! high ride height..!! short in lenght..!! all this translate to a dynamic ride..!! -comfort for 5 people -dual clutch auto transmission(i think there is a 10 year warranty) -euro stage 5 emissions(thts more than bharat stage 4) -ecoboost(google it) -curb weight is less than 1400kgs (expected) haha!!!! dont even bother to think xuv is light.. lets just say its the main culprit behind its fuel economy..!! even innova is much lighter..!!! (google it) -fire your driver (or just put him in the passenger seat..) this car is meant to be enjoyed driven by you..

    Well lets wait and watch!! Looks awesome, and will surely hit the jackpot if price is maintained below 10 lakh. Renault Duster , Mahindra Qaunto and hatchback like i20 , Swift will have tough time maintaining its sell if Ford brings this out under 7 to 10 lakh.

    the rear seats must have the backside moving adjustments same as the innova ( rear first row seat adjustment ). rear seat must fit for the 3 passengers COMFORTABLY {which lacks in fiesta & superb in etios,verito}
