By now you may have seen images of the India-spec Ford EcoSport or if you are lucky enough, seen it in the metal itself.

What we know

 

The Ford EcoSport is one of the most eagerly expected vehicles in India at the moment. Slotting in under four metres in length, the EcoSport will benefit from tax norms allowing Ford to price the compact SUV in an attractive manner. 

 

It will be available with three engines options one of which will be the cutting edge 1.0 litre EcoBoost petrol engine that has been awarded for its class-leading performance and efficiency. The second engine option is likely to be the 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine. The third engine option is yet to be revealed.

 

The Ford EcoSport has spacious interiors for its size and can seat five people in comfort and has a boot space of 346 litres. The rear seats can be folded 60:40 to throw open a total of 560 litres of rear space. 

 

Practicality is enhanced by the SUV’s 200mm ground clearance and 550mm of wading depth. And while this is a front wheel drive vehicle, its 25º approach angle, 25º breakover angle and 35º departure angle will allow it to tackle light off-road tracks.
