By this time, everybody will be knowing the details of the compact crossover which is making weekend appearances in shopping malls across 12 cities in India. So we know how the car looks like but we will get a better idea of its proportions if we compare it with popular sub 4 metre hatchbacks.

Here are the set of images taken by a member of who goes by the name, “DrvSafe”, at an office parking lot in Chennai. The mini SUV has been parked between a VW Polo and a Maruti Swift, giving us an excellent perspective of the EcoSport’s dimensions in relative terms.

Given its sub 4 metre length, we have to say that Ford’s designers have done an impressive job of making it look like a proper SUV rather than a raised hatchback. It may not have the road presence of bigger SUVs nevertheless would command a fair share of attention amidst the traffic.

To recap the things, the EcoSport will be available with a set of three engine options – a 1.0 litre EcoBoost turbo petrol, a 1.5 litre petrol and a 1.5 litre diesel engine. The 1.5 litre petrol engine will be also available with the 6-speed Powershift dual clutch transmission while the rest will be equipped only with a 5-speed manual transmission.

When and how much are the only questions that still remain unanswered!
