I am planning to buy Ecosport Titanium+.
Below is the price quoted :

Ex Showroom : 11,18,000
0.75% TCS : 8,385
Insurance (1yr OD + 3yr TP) : 55,816
1 yr Zero Dip (Opt) : 5,040
RTO / Registration chrgs : 1,60,520
Essential Kit
(Mat, Mud flaps &Trunk mat) : 4,230
4th & 5th year warranty(Opt): 16,999
Total : 13,69,590

Discounts offered : 20k on ex showroom & 25k on Insurance & Zero dip. and few free accessories

Final Price quoted : 13,15,000.

Is it a good buy to go with this price or will it be better to wait for 2021 model. Will there be any price hike for 2021 model and will I get any discounts for 2021 model.

Please let me know,

Ford Ecosport Facelift / Update in 2021
As you must be aware that Ford is not operating as independent unit in India now, rather is what Mahindra-Ford JV in existence in India with 51% share of Mahindra and 49% share of Ford. As a part of JV - Ford has transferred Indian Operations for cars manufactured in India under this JV

This JV is going to introduce in few cars too in near future in SUV and EV Vehicle segment and synergies of Mahindra will be what incorporated in Ford Cars in near future. Also, there is a possibility of Mahindra MStallion Turbo GDI Petrol Engines to feature in Ford Cars and also likely Mahindra may plonk in power 300 NM Torquey Diesel Engine in Ford Cars as part of development.

As Ecosport is the first compact SUV of Indian Market and is what 8 year old product - the SUV Sales dragged down by Competition car models launched in recent times, and is a possibility that next generation Ecosport can well likely come in 2021 end to early 2022 to Indian Market.

However, a minor update is also expected in Ecosport which may just feature in early 2021
Reason for it - As a random check done, some of the model variants are out of stock with Ford Dealer showroom and for new bookings - delivery time lines of of 2021 January is what said by dealer showroom. Only limited inventory is what left with dealer showroom and as an interaction done with unofficial sources - Ford is doing limited dispatches of old indents already placed in October to 1st Week of November

This could just be a sign that a minor facelift / feature refshuffling / update is a likely possibility in January 2021
In terms of Prices - Every year Manufacturers across board increase prices in January, and scenario wont be different this year too with prices likely to see upward revision in January 2021 too. Also, discount offers tend to be slight limited too but by the time March comes with Financial year closing - offers witness an upward revision

Existing Ecosport Deal Offer
As can see that for Andhra / Telangana
> Ex-showroom is correct

> RTO Charges are correct and can confirm that dealer showroom is not charging any brokerage or commission. However, if buying car through own funds then can avail Rs 1500 waiver as hypothecation charges are what added to it

> Insurance is yes inflated premium and at Rs 35K premium is a competitive premium if with zero depreciation and engine protection - have they referred on which insurance company are they going to offer to. Also pls ensure that IDV is what at 95% of ex-showroom price as in a recent case observed that a customer was handed over policy at lower IDV by a Car showroom on pretext of discounts

Also, kind dont get in dealer end tact that they offering in discount. Its a fair premium been charged by them.

> Essential Kit - Generally negotiated free on customer bargain.

> Discount Offer - I can see that yes Ford Stock Inventory is what limited but you need to find out 2 things
a) Whats the VIN Number of the car they going to offer in. See Ford India increased prices effective July 2020. You can share VIN Number with us to help you find Manufactring month. If the car is July 2020 Manufactured or before that period - potential chances are to negotiate in higher discounts

b) Dealer End Bargains - Essentially you getting in Rs 20K Cash discount If you are from Hyderabad or other major metro city then is easy to negotiate as can see that there definite is a scope to make deal better to extent of Rs 25000 Cash Discount + Free Accessories

The way is explained here where have to involve in 2nd showroom or even another showroom

Should give a way to negotiate in deal offer on new car
Hope should help !!
