    Hi Shravan, quite desperate to know its launch date in India. Thinking seriously of buying it if its in a 7-9 lakh budget, anything more, would rather go for XUV500 then. Do you think Ford will get the pricing right?

  • Jishnu S V

    The prototype looks production ready. IAB are the interiors similar to the new Fiesta or completely different and when is it going to be launched in India?

  • Timmy George

    Car looks good…Hope performance is as good as the looks…waiting for the review from IAB…

  • Sridhar Rao

    I was one of the 1100 people who watched the live unveiling on web. I hope this is the production model too. Were you physically present at the venue, Shrawan? Any idea on the price and sales date?

    Hello
    Ford Ecosport looks Good Except the front grill is overdone.I think in future they will launch in 1.5 lt Diesel Engine and they should price it very aggressively!!.
    Anyways this is new Segment which Ford is exploring and other companies will follow.
    Way to go FORD!!
