FORD ECOSPORT

INTRODUCTION

Ford EcoSport is one of the most exciting 5-seater SUVs in India. Available in seven petrol versions and eight diesel variants, it is also one of the most popular SUVs that you will find. A glance at Ford EcoSport prices reveals that it is one of the most economical as well. Hence, Ford EcoSport is a defining SUV in many ways. One of the essential features of Ford EcoSport is the 1.5-litre Ecoboost engine. Of all Ford EcoSport variants, two have automatic transmission system whereas the remaining vehicles run on 6-speed manual gears.

Though Ford EcoSport has a body of an SUV, it is a crossover model because this SUV body sits on the chassis of a sedan. It is a muscular vehicle capable of cruising over rough terrain because of its high Ford EcoSport ground clearance. Ford EcoSport is an ideal vehicle for families that go on long trips. The salient feature of this vehicle is that it comes with a tailgate-mounted spare wheel similar to what many SUVs in India provide.

 

 

EXTERIOR

EXTERIOR

Ford EcoSport has a unique design that highlights its high ground clearance. The front portion of the vehicle consists of a single unit having a prominent hexagonal grille flanked by horizontal slats. The Ford logo at the centre of grill looks commanding. The makers have used a lot of chrome plating to lend an exquisite look to the fascia. The highlights of the frontal fascia are its projector headlights with Daytime Running Lamps and fog lamps. The Ford EcoSport lower-end models drive on 15-inch alloy wheels whereas the top-end versions have 17-inch wheels to deliver a higher Ford EcoSport ground clearance.


The Ford EcoSport specifications are 3998mm X 1765mm X 1647mm thereby ensuring that it is a tall vehicle. The ground clearance for the lower end Ford EcoSport cars is 200mm, high enough for all speed breakers and bumps. The wheelbase of 2519mm lends adequate balance as it provides the right equilibrium to balance the front and back portions of the car.

INTERIOR

INTERIOR

Ford EcoSport interior match the exterior in every respect. The vehicle is a tall one. The designing of the cabin makes it look more spacious than it is. In spite of the high ground clearance, the car provides adequate headroom for occupants. One of the salient features of Ford EcoSport interior in the top-end models is the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Ford’s latest SYNC 3 system features both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The lower-end models get a similar system, but with a smaller touchscreen measuring 6.5 inches.

You can experience the difference as you enter the Ford EcoSport. Plush seats with high-quality fabric beckon you to have a seat. The height of the cabin is such that you get enough headroom. The driver seat presents an ideal view of the road ahead. A fantastic dashboard with both analogue and digital indicators greets the driver. Adjustable headrests for all rows add to the overall comfort.

Infotainment system is compatible with Bluetooth and has adequate connectivity options, like Aux-In and USB. The driver gets immediate reminders like engine malfunction, headlight alert, low fuel warning, fasten seatbelt warning, and key off alerts. Different indicators like fuel gauge and distance to fuel empty status are welcome additions. Ford EcoSport does not have a big boot, but it is adequate to store your luggage when you go on long trips

ENGINE & PERFORMANCE

ENGINE & PERFORMANCE

Many Ford vehicles have the powerful 1.0L Ecoboost engine. On launching Ford EcoSport, Ford has discontinued its 1.0L engine and replaced it with a 1.5L engine. This BS IV-compliant engine is a naturally aspirated engine capable of delivering higher power. The petrol variant delivers a torque of 150 Nm @4500 rpm and provides enough power of 123 Ps @6500 rpm. However, one model, 1.0L Ecoboost Ti VCT Titanium S comes with a 999cc engine.

The diesel engine is more potent than its petrol counterpart is, as it delivers a power of 99 Bhp @3750 rpm and has a torque of 205 Nm @1750 rpm. Ford EcoSport runs on a front wheel drive with a 5-speed manual transmission system. Some of the top-end variants come with 6-speed manual transmission as well. Ford EcoSport has two variants that run on an automatic transmission.

Ford EcoSport diesel mileage is around 23 kmpl whereas the automatic variants deliver less at 14.8 kmpl. Ford EcoSport petrol mileage is a satisfactory figure of approximately 17 to 18 kmpl. It does not set the roads on fire, but the Ford EcoSport mileage is a decent one in its segment.

Ford EcoSport is a comfortable vehicle to handle. Its high ground clearance gives the impression of lording over the roads. The driver seat arrangement is such that one gets a perfect view of the road ahead. Its power steering facility enables you to manoeuvre the big vehicle in challenging city traffic easily. Overall, one can state that Ford EcoSport is an excellent vehicle in all respects.

 

BRAKING AND SAFETY

BRAKING AND SAFETY

Ford EcoSport has excellent front and rear suspensions to ensure that its passengers enjoy a comfortable ride. The high Ford EcoSport ground clearance also plays a vital role in this aspect. The lower end models have tyre size of 195/65R15 whereas its top models come with 17-inch alloy wheels.

Ventilated disc brakes for the front wheel and drum brakes for the rear are good enough to bring the vehicle to an immediate halt. It comes with ABS and EBD so that the car does not skip or topple over when you apply sudden brakes in an emergency. All variants except for four Titanium models come with two airbags for driver and front seat passenger. The Titanium Plus models have six airbags to protect all passengers. Additional standard safety features include warnings for ‘door ajar,’ engine immobiliser, child safety locks, and a central locking system.

CONCLUSION

CONCLUSION

Ford EcoSport reviews show that many people prefer the Ford SUV to its competitors because of various reasons. One principal reason is the ease of handling the Ford EcoSport. India has an excellent domestic market for Ford EcoSport. Customers appreciate this compact SUV as Ford has rectified various errors from the previous generation of this vehicle. The pricing of Ford EcoSport is also one of the crucial factors for its popularity..

Things to keep in mind before Buying Ford EcoSport

 

 

When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.

    The EcoSport made a big splash in the compact SUV space when it came in India. And Ford has kept regularly updating the Vitara Brezza rival and the hugely improved Ford EcoSport has plenty going for it, particularly with buyers looking for a well-built crossover that packs in new tech and is great to drive.
