Ford EcoSport is HERE
Finally launched !!

Mentioned during launch that the 1L EcoBoost engine will be available which according to Ford is equivalent to a traditional 1.6L petrol engine.

The EcoSport will be on display at the AutoExpo from tomorrow.
Hope Ford announces the dates and prices tomorrow.
There was no mention of this at the launch.

I hope the Jetta TSI starts something at VW, i.e They start getting the TSI technology across the range to power the Polo and Vento. The engines, though costlier will be much more efficient and fun to drive than their current petrol range.

The Audi A3 is one more car that I loved when the concept was launched. Its got great looks, an ideal size and a (hopefully) relatively approachable price tag.

Wow, I know I am late but I had to say this. AWESOME. It will be like being there, seeing everything first hand, but with comfort of sitting in your home. Eagerly watching this space and awaiting the new thread. "Team" rocks.

Like many others, I am too interested in duster,ertiga and ecosport. Any chance on diesel nano?

That sounds exciting! Some details please!

Well, it was quite a surprise. I entered their FB competition which asked 5 questions about the MINI [related to MINI history, design and some random ones like how many medals did MINI win in Monaco] and just yesterday evening I got a call saying I was one of their five winners. Will be allowed access to the expo only on the 6th and will be part of the launch at 8pm. Super exciting for me, because it's been my dream car forever and after.

I think many Team-Bhp-ians will be coming to Auto Show. I will be there on 6th and 7th Jan. It will be great time to meet fellow bhpians there. Any ideas on our identification, a small sticker or something on shirt?
