    Q. I am about to buy a compact SUV. I preferred Venue to Ecosport earlier but now I have a mind shift and I am behind Ecosport. How about its build quality, Ride comfort, Engine performance? Which one should I go for? Thunder edition or Titanium Plus?
    • The build quality of Ford cars has always been up to the mark and a long list of features like dual front airbags, rear parking sensors and ABS with EBD adds to the safety of the car. Speaking of ride comfort, despite looking like a mini-SUV it offers wider front and rear seats with softened cushioning and the rear seat is available with drop-down armrest with cup holders. As for the engine performance, the 1.0-litre petrol engine feels sporty and is fuel efficient too with a claimed mileage of 18.1 km/l but is only available with the S Petrol variant, the 1.5-litre petrol engine, on the other hand, returns 17 km/l with the manual transmission and 14.8 km/l with the automatic gearbox and the 1.5-litre diesel engine also offers a fun drive. Among the Thunder Edition and Titanium Plus, we'd recommend taking the Thunder Edition pack if you want the car with cosmetic updates. For more information, please click here .
    • I am having Ford EcoSport 2017 version and I would like to say the Ford EcoSport 2018 and onward version I didn't like personally as they've changed a few things in the interior and I didn't like it for Ex. The Dash board. previously The Dashboard was more smooth than it is now now the dashboard is more upright like a 90 degree angle. and It really makes the interior look mess. And a few minor things have been change. otherwise You can Go for EcoSport one of the best compact SUV I've even come across and In a good price as well. So You can Go for it blindly I just didn't like The New dashboard look rest everything is amazing. Not to Worry. ❤️❤️
    • Go for titanium plus unless u want all the fancy stuff like duo chrome and sunroof. im owning titanium plus since past 1yr and its pretty sturdy as well as robust on road. showroom experience was good and servicing experience has been good as well so far. ford is reliable. if u want to go for hyundai prefer creta over venue any day

    Q. My budget is 10.5 lakh. My running is 10 to 14 KM's per day. Confused between Venue SX Turbo petrol and Ford EcoSport 1.5 petrol Titanium. Which is the best value for money model.
    • If you are looking for a car with a decent engine, better cabin space, better fuel efficiency figures and premium interior then you may opt for the Hyundai Venue. The 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol motor puts out 120PS of maximum power and 172Nm of peak torque and returns a claimed fuel efficiency of 18.27kmpl with the manual transmission. The SX variant gets a lot of goodies including a rear camera, projector headlamps with cornering function and LED DRLs, LED taillamps, height-adjustable driver’s seat, electric sunroof, auto headlamps, Auto AC, power-folding ORVMs, cruise control, 8-inch touchscreen display, 16-inch alloys, etc. Moreover, take a test drive of the car before making the final decision as it would help a lot in making up your mind.

    • First of all no need to spend that much for a very shorter distance...Ford ecoosport titanium comes in the price with all safety features and is a proven car..you can get top notch safety and performance in polo tsi at..nexon petrol too..venue too is good ...here I suggest titanium or titanium plus variant of Ford ecosport.
    • Pl. try TATA NEXON at same budget .. best in class for everything. no doubt of safety and reliability for NEXON . value for money for everything in perfromance.

    Q. Which is best for performance EcoSport or WRV (petrol version)?
    • According to me honda any time better then ford as i currently own ford ecosport then to what honda delivers is great value for money and high end quality product which is well tested and build according to india condition. Honda is know for its quality as in ford they highly lack in quality as there is always issue in electronic sensors engine indicator light turns on any time inspite of regular and time to time service plus as we know water logging condition in mumbai ford highly fail if you take drive car even 2 ft and above water level car stops working and then there is huge amount of bill you need to pay to get car back ok track basically ford don't invest and build the car according to indian wether condition this goes specially for ecosport. So highly suggest go for wrv
    • MIleage - WRV I will divide comfort in several aspects: 1. Seating comfort 1st row - Ecosport (better back and cushion support and feel than Honda seats) 2. Seating comfort 2nd row - WRV (Very well suited for long drives for 3 persons. Bucket seats are better positioned compared to Ecosports) 3. Headroom, legroom and width - WRV (Honda has put in a lot of thought and provided us with an awesome usage space) 4. Luggage space - WRV. 5 . Seating position - Ecosports (A little edge there as seat position of ecosports driver seat is approx 50 mm higher than WRV) 6. Sunroof - WRV 7. Body roll - Ecosport Mileage - both are equally good in petrol variants; for diesel - definitely WRV. Resale price - ECO sport will fetch a bit more than WRV though not drastic difference. Value for money - IMO both are equally good but still if your family is of 5 persons and prefer a top end petrol car, WRV should be the choice. Other wise Ecosport should suit you just as fine.
    • Both the cars are good to buy and stands good on their ground. On one hand, WR-V borrows quite a lot from the Jazz but manages to stand tall on its own toes. It’s got space, it’s efficient and has the right amount of feel-good features. Then there’s Honda’s reputation for reliability. Also, it’s your only option if you want a cross-hatch with a sunroof. So, WRV is for you. On the other hand, EcoSport has got its mojo back. It’s among the only ones in its class that actually looks like a scaled down SUV and not a blown-up hatchback. If you need a small SUV that has some swag, you know where to head.
