Ford Ecosport Review with Positives and Negatives Explained. On Road Prices, Feature Differences of Ecosport Ambiente, Trend, Titanium and Titanium Plus Model

 

Ford Ecosport Review

Ford Ecosport is now a 7 Year Old Product which has witness several updates since its launch in June 2013

  • Facelift Introduced in October 2015
  • Another Facelift in November 2017
  • Next Facelift introduced in October 2018
  • Several round of Features been reshuffled across variants
  • Limited Edition Models, Special Edition Models been introduced time to time

However, its still the 1st Generation of Ecosport been selling in Indian Markets in 2020 and 2nd Generation Model still has no clue for 2020.

Below are what the Positives and Negatives of Ford Ecosport SUV

 

Ford Ecosport Positives

  • Engine is like heart of car and Ford Ecosport 1.5 Litre TDCI Diesel Engine is one among the best in Lag free Performance, Smooth Pickup and Responsive nature. 
  • High Speed Dynamics are better with good Steering feedback. Thanks to stiff suspension and wider R16 205/60 Tyres grip is better on higher speed, but to disclaim Ford India used to have hydarulic steering in yesteryears on Figo, Classic and Fiesta - its no match to that kind of steering feedback which otherwise was in DNA of Ford Cars in the past
  • 6 Speed Torque Converter Automatic Transmission in 1.5 Litre 3 Cylinder Dragon Petrol Engine offers linear pickup and Paddle Shifters are for added convenience for fun.
  • Build Quality, Fully Loaded Safety of 6 Airbags, ESP, Traction Control in Titanium Plus and Sports Model are what the highlight of Ecosport. Even Sports Variant equipped with Tyre Pressure Monitoring system
  • Ecosport signature Sync3 Touchscreen fluid response - which as of now is only limited to S Model is by far the best fluid touchscreen system then even a segment up cars like - Tata Harrier, MG Hector and even to Next Gen Creta, Seltos. Yes, to disclaim Ecosport may miss in Voice Command system as seen in MG Hector, Hyundai Creta or KIa Seltos but fluidness is one among the best

 

Ford Ecosport Negatives

  • Ford Ecosport 1.5 Litre Dragon Petrol Engine with 121 BHP Power and 150 NM Torque - although looks powerful on papers but trust its no match or alternative to 1.5 Litre 115 PS Engine of Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos Petrol which start at sub 10 Lakh been they are 4 cylinder and somehow the pickup of Ecosport just feels ordinary due to heavy weight of 1220 Kg. If you seek Power Packed Performance in Petrol then Venue Turbo, Mahindra XUV300 Petrol in similar price as chocie is a lot more responsive against Ecosport 1.5 There is no excitement of pickup in Ecosport 1.5 Petrol and performance is only at best to be caled linear. Adding on 3 cylinder engine has relative some kind of vibrations (although minimal) at idling - which is not present in Kia Seltos Petrol, Hyundai Creta Petrol and even against Brezza Petrol which is 4 cylinder and Venue 1.0 Turbo which is what 3 cylinder
  • Petrol Engine Fuel Efficiency - well Ecosport Automatic Mileage can be considered good if getting in range of 9 to 10 Kmpl in city and for Manual 10 to 11 Kmpl in city conditions
  • Rear Seat Legroom which is very compact if you compare against Mahindra XUV300, Maruti Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Honda WRV or if you feel in a way to check out for Ecosport Titanium, Titanium Plus and S Model which overlaps in pricing of Creta and Seltos lower end Variants
  • Ecosport in 2020 is having Sync3 Touchscreen only in S Model. When the SUV got facelift - slowly the infotainment system was replaced in 2018 and 2019 with FlyAudio Touchscreen System which lacks Android Auto and Apple Car Play and neither as responsive and neither has color resolution as what seen in Sync3 System
  • Clutch is relative Stiffer in Ecosport and Suspension is Stiffer. For those looking for Plush ride within city or light clutch may well be slight disappointed with Ecosport
