Upcoming: Ford EcoSport : Compact SUV : Price, Details

Ford is introducing its Budget SUV, Ford EcoSport in India. In Fact, ford has planned to launch it worldwide. EcoSport would be powered by 1 litre petrol engine, EcoBoost which is Ford's smallest engine, is tuned to maximize performance with saving fuel.

The 3 cylinder engine produces 120 Ps of maximum power and 170 Nm of maximum torque at 1500 rpm. Ford EcoSport Diesel would follow after the launch of petrol version.

The Compact SUV, Ford EcoSport has aerodynamic design to help engine perform better. It looks good both from the front and from the rear. Interiors looks good despite of 'Compact SUV', it contains steer-wheel mounted controls, climate control, console for settings, AUX, USB and more. It has got enough of ground clearance. I see direct competition to Indian Mahindra XUV500. As they both fall in same category and same price range.

Price Not revealed, but expected price of Ford Ecosport is : 7-9 lakh.
Expected Launch date of Ford EcoSport is before the End of 2012, probably in Diwali or December 2012.
Mileage of Ford EcoSport is said to be 18-20 kmpl which is nearer to diesel small cars like Hyundai i20, Maruti Suzuki Swift and Volkswagen Polo.

It is a bit illogical when they say that ecosports is compared with XUV500. The reason I feel is ecosports is a sub 4 that means less than 4 mts in length. In INDIA we get excise benefit on less than 4 mts in length and in cc too, then how come compare it with the latest launched MUV / MPV in INDIA. This MINI SUV should be compared with Mini Xylo according to me. Lastly if ecosport IF AT ALL is sub 4 then how it is price above 7 and if so mini Xylo will be a clear winner as both would be sub 4 mts. and ecoports as being dearer will lose the market. IF AT ALL ECOPSORTS IS SUB 4.
