Ford Ecosport Titanium Plus Diesel Ownership Review

Model: Ford Ecosport Titanium + Diesel (2016)

Mileage: with all time AC - ON
City - 15-17kmpl (Mostly single seating)
Highway - 17-19 Kmpl (Mostly 2A + 1C) with Luggage

This is Ownership review based on 2 years Experience of Ford Ecosport Diesek

Things I should Recommend about this beast are - Comfort, Stability & Power. I drive about average speed of 120 kmph on highways and have never felt it to be going at that speed when I see outside of the window.

Passengers in the rear seats are also very comfortable but Front 2 seats are the best place in this car to be seating in this SUV. Cabin is very quiet in comparison to many competitors. But I noticed after 10000 Kms service, that sound has increased a bit, maybe during service it changed.

Seat Cushions are soft and have good under thigh support for relaxed seating. I drove from Kanya Kumari to Chennai (700 kms) in about 11 hrs including 2 brakes of 1 hour each. After getting down i was feeling like i was good to drive for another 250-300 kms. Brakes are good and respond immediately. Acceleration is very responsive. Pickup is good in all the gears and you can overtake in any gear like a breeze without feeling the jerk of sudden pickup.

Driving on Hills is a pleasure due to the control on steering and power. Dickey has lot of space, my kid loves sitting in dickey with toys and a pillow :)


Ford Ecosport Plus Points:
- Powerful Engine - you won't feel any lag when you are driving alone or fully loaded.
- Stable drive on Road, Hills & City streets
- Comfortable Seating
- 2 power points (front & back)
- Lot of storage space in Doors
- Good Luggage space
- Bit high seating
- Useful auto wipers & Headlamps
- Useful Rear lamps
- Integrated Convex mirror in ORVM
- Cushion on armrest on Doors is good thinking.

Ford Ecosport Negative Points:
- A-pillar create blind spots
- 5 seating is bit cramped
- Music system doesn't have tweeter
- Sound system is good but definitely NOT for music lovers.
- No option to change this music system
- Can't add tweeters in ford service center. Get it done outside & loose warranty.
- Arm support doesn't have storage, so space below it becomes cramped when you keep mobile & wallet in those pockets next to handbrake.
- Head lamps provide descent lighting on highways... but could be better.

Final Recommendation:
I recommend Ford Ecosport Diesel for those who Love to Drive.
