Editor's View of Ford EcoSport
Nicely loaded lineup, great engine options and great handling
Second row can get a little bumpy, there's no diesel automatic variant and loaded variants get a little pricey.
The success of the Ford EcoSport can be attributed to its packaging. It offers great engines, good interiors with an appealing design and that very likeable SUVish stance.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying EcoSport
- Ford updates the features between variants every now and then. so you visit the showroom and get proper update about such features on variants while buying
- Ecosport do have a sunroof in Titanium Sports Model which is the top of the line model
- Good I have run 1000 km continue Indore to Goa 2 time no problem
- There's no problem with ecosport's engine..mileage is around 19.5 in highways and 15 in city. I've been driving ecosport for so long that it ran 103000 kms so far with no issues in engine or transmission .. car's great with the same performance and riding quality as when bought new
- I owned Ecosport since 2013. Recently I had to change the engine, plate clutch, wheel bearings etc. Within a space of few months I spent more than 1 lakh for repair and now it is not starting.
- In city like Guwahati traffic it is approximately 15---16km/litre and in highway within 80--100km/hr speed above 22---23km/L in my titanium plus diesel 2017ecoaports model.
- What kind of off roading? If it's a bumpy or pot-holed metallic road, Ecosport is just fine. But if you go to mines, Tata Safari is the best.
- The 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.
- In my view off reading is good only in 4 wheel drive it’s good but one wheel if not working the vehicles struggle in off road
- Ford ecosport... But if you want 7 seater then brv is the best choice.
- Brv for its additional two seats and better mileage backed by Honda reliability. Terrano is a tough suv in comparison and hence better on rough roads.
- Depends on your preference/ need Size, purpose, fuel type etc
- Though segments are different Ecosport is better for a small family .
- Some condition that makes eco sport better than duster
- Ecosport has far better features than duster
- Xuv 300 is overpriced . Duster lacks visual appeal . So you are left with Ecosport . After seven years of India launch , it looks contemporary .
- Both the car can't match ecosport
- Eco sport

I bought titanium plus automatic model.I was very impressed with the safety features but was worried about the mileage part, as almost all reviews said , poor mileage.. around 8 km in city drive and about 10-11 km on highway.. since my usage was limited , took the risk and bought it. Now. I am pleasently surprised to note that the mileage I am getting is much higher. In city bumper to bumper traffic with AC on, I am getting around 10 , and with moderate city traffic the mileage is around 11-12. However on highway I got 15 km with AC on.. which is very good considering it is an automatic transmission. I have driven about 2000 km and keeping the RPM around 2000-2500, as it is still engine run in phase. It depends on the driving pattern as well and I switch off the engine if the wait for green signal is more than 60 second, probably it helps.
I buyed Ford ecosport trend plus diesel on 2016, still my car 15 kmpl, When In buying periods I saw reviews people wrote same mileage issue but I neglected that review but now I facing mileage issues. If anybody like to buy Ford ecosport better to buy top model only please don't buy mid and low model due to breaking system (top model they using disk brake, low and mid range they use other break systems
The Ecopsort Titanium Petrol is a complete disappointment.Pros: Good Handling, Good Cabin FeaturesCons: Very Poor Mileage (offers only 8kmpl in intra-city travel and 10kmpl on highway), Poor Cabin space (car is for 4 adults and not 5), Poor Dealer"s competency in resolving issues, Average Comfort and Performance Too Pricey, Less in cabin space, mileage drasticall poor offers only 8 KPMG
Go for it if you are an expert in maintenance, the authorized service stations are incompetent and if you by 1 service per year, the vehicle will start showing age within 3 years. I have local mechanics helping out with periodic maintenance and trouble shooting. In addition, you have much better Indian options available in market compared to 3 years earlier: Nexon, XUV300, go for them.
This car is called as an SUV but its major problem is tiers losses its grip in mud roads during rainy season due to the torque, and front wheel drive. Safety at it best. best in class, comfort, design. this car is better than other in this segment. TATA NEXON is little bit better in built quality. No issues while driving, no issues with service .
Ford bought only one good model to India that is Ford Mustang, the best and cheapest of all sports cars sold in India. Ford should also bring Mustang Mach e and Mustang GT models to India. Then there can be a good choice of buying high end models.
Best compact SUV in terms of Safety and quality...further the engine never gets rough even at high speeds
real car but mileage is not satisfactory
Overall performance is good, mileage should have been more compare to other car in this segments.
nothing to say I think I should have bought diesel version titanium

Ford EcoSport Highlights
Launched in the price range of Rs 7.67 - 11.20 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Ford EcoSport comes with stylish exteriors, premium interiors, and a new 3-cylinder 1.5-liter petrol engine mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Ecoboost 1.0-litre petrol and the 1.5-liter diesel motor has been carried over and claimed mileage figures for petrol manual, petrol automatic, and diesel manual are 17 kmpl, 14.8 kmpl, and 23 kmpl respectively. The EcoBoost claimed mileage sits at 18.1kmpl which should make it the most efficient of the lot. The new EcoSport is available in total of 7 variants and the top of the line S trim comes loaded with features like six airbags, electronic stability control, ABS with EBD, traction control, large touchscreen infotainment system, projector headlamps, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, brake assist, and tyre pressure monitoring system. Ford Ecosport comes with the boot capacity of 352-litre and features 200 mm of ground clearance. In Indian market, 2017 EcoSport is up against the likes of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and Tata Nexon among others.
The new EcoSport can be had with either a 1.0-litre petrol, 1.5-litre petrol, or a 1.5-litre Diesel engine. The EcoBoost 1.0-litre engine is back in the lineup and makes 125PS and 170Nm. The larger three-cylinder petrol engine makes 123PS and 150Nm, whereas the four-cylinder diesel is good for 100PS and 205Nm. Both engines are paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. Additionally, the petrol version can be had with a 6-speed torque converter automatic. ARAI-certified mileage stands at 16.98kmpl (petrol-MT), 14.77kmpl (petrol-AT) and 22.89kmpl (diesel-MT) respectively. In our road test of the 1.5-litre petrol automatic we managed 17.12kmpl on the highway and just 7.04kmpl in the city. The manual was considerably more efficient and returned 17.59kmpl and 12.74kmpl for highway and city tests respectively.
Ford’s compact SUV will be available in a total of variants viz. Ambiente, Trend, Trend+, Titanium and Titanium+, Signature Edition and the top of the line S. While a manual transmission is available in all variants, the automatic will be available in the mid-spec Trend+ and the top-spec Titanium+ variants only. The EcoBoost engine is only available in the S trim level.
EcoSport Exterior and Interior
The refreshed EcoSport sports a familiar design. The updated face is a lot more aggressive compared to the outgoing one, but there’s no mistaking this compact SUV for anything else. The top-spec Titanium and Titanium+ variants get halogen projector headlamps and daytime running lamps, that adds a premium touch. Rounding things off is the new grille and bumper combination that imparts some more muscle to the baby Ford. The side and the rear remain practically unchanged, save for a new set of alloy wheels (17-inch for the Titanium+ and 16-inch for the Titanium) and a mildly retouched rear bumper. In the S and the Signature Edition variants customers will also enjoy the novelty of a sunroof that was added into the EcoSport lineup along with the return of the EcoBoost engine.
It’s on the inside where Ford has really worked on. As years passed by, the EcoSport’s dash appeared cluttered and messy. Well, that’s not a problem anymore as the new layout is a lot simpler. Titanium+ variants upwards get a large 8.0-inch touchscreen that features Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Ford’s SYNC3 tech. The base-spec Ambiente trim will feature a conventional audio system and Ford’s phone dock, where as mid-spec variants will get a 6.5-inch touchscreen unit. Other updates include a new steering wheel, instrument cluster, a tyre pressure monitoring system and a front armrest. On the features front, the top-spec version gets automatic headlamps, automatic climate control, cruise control with limiter and six airbags.
Ford EcoSport Competitors
Maruti Vitara Brezza: The Brezza ticks the basics of punch, practicality and peace of mind. If you can bear the ridiculously long waiting periods, you’ll end up with a compact-SUV that won’t let you complain. But, in all probability, so will everybody else.
Honda WR-V: There’s more to the WR-V than being a Jazz on steroids. While it retains the hatchbacks basics of space and functionality, it brings in the added advantage of a high ground clearance. It also gets a sunroof. Doesn’t everyone want a sunroof in their lives?
Tata Nexon: Among the best vehicles to roll out of a Tata factory, the Nexon comes very close to acing the compact-SUV game. The funky styling, big 350-litre boot and some segment-firsts like an activity key make it a formidable force in the segment.
The 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.
