Full Description

Compact SUV’s!! A new definition to Hatch come SUV in India. Off late many automakers are concentrating more into making compact SUV’s for the Indian market. It all started off with Premier Rio who was not successful enough in the market and then plunged into the Renault Duster, later came Ford EcoSport. An SUV with a sports title, like the name the car by itself is a sporty one. Ford projects the compact SUV segment to grow 5 times from the current level by 2020 in India. Ford has taken the EcoSport seriously and believes it will bring a good amount of buyers similar to the Figo. The compact SUV of Ford is really compact with it’s under 4-meter length premium car. It is clearly evident that Ford has saved a substantial chunk in excise duties by keeping the car under 4-meter length. The EcoSport looks small however the tall dimensions and the wheel arches are a head turner. The most attractive part of the vehicle is the front hexagonal grille and the smooth lines which flows through the bonnet and slowly joins the A-pillar and then protruding towards the rear of the car. The 15-inch wheels look too tiny for the car however the top end variants get 16-inch wheels which looks filled. The spare wheel placed at the rear corner and the 200 mm ground makes justice to the name compact SUV. The rear spoiler and the brake lights give a sporty look as well. The boot lid opener is hid within the rear tail lamp which is not visible at the first glance. Absence of under chassis engine guard shows the urge of Fords cost cutting on building the EcoSport at a competitive price tag. The interior of Ford EcoSport is pretty identical to that of a fiesta. With a 2 tone dashboard (black and gray) and the robotic looking AC vents with silver lining on them attracts young aged buyers.  Wait!! how can I not speak about the three spoke steering wheel with silver inserts and audio controls on them. A cute little display is located on top of the center console which displays various information of vehicle such as sped alarm and audio system. The most important feature of the car is the emergency assistance, which dials 108 hands free in case the air bag is deployed or the fuel pump shut off is activated. You can also cancel the call in manually within the first 10 seconds of the accident. The EcoSport offers two charging points one at the front center console and the other at the side of the rear passenger seat. The EcoSport cabin restricts the 5 person entry into the car as it is too congested at the back but otherwise there is enough legroom and head room for a 6 foot tall. The steering wheel is tilt adjustable and hence it can be adjusted according to the height. Front A-pillar is the size of a tree trunk and hence u get to face a few blind spots quiet often. The boot space is quiet small (346 liter) compared to Duster (480 liter), however the rear seat can be folded into 60:40 ratio and further bent right against the front seat to create a bigger volume space. The fuel tank capacity is 52 liters. The rear wheels have occupied the boot space by creating a hump just like the old fashioned bus wheels.
