Had visited one of the ford showrooms today where one of executives was saying the price may be around 10L for petrol tops, can this be true.

Had a chat with the Ford sales team at Trivandrum over the weekend.

They acknowledged that there were three models in Trivandrum - the 1.0L Ecoboost, 1.6 Petrol and the 1.5 Diesel - for testing. They were to complete 2000 kms of testing while they are here, as part of completing 200,000 kms across all road conditions in India.

The Ecosport is expected to be launched in February.

^^ Looks lovely in this colour. It is definitely up there on the list.

Blue has never really sold on any car in India. I wonder why ?! Will the Ecosport change that ?

Looking at this snap the mirrors seem to be protruding quite a bit. Even after folding seems like it will be a nightmare protecting them.

Very true, the night pictures of blue is tempting. I was planning for red and now for the first time, blue is in the competition.

I felt the same from day one when we saw the pictures. Even my scorp mirrors gets hit by bikes at least once a week. This is going to be one pain that we have to live it.

Blue has never really been widely accepted in India, even the Fiesta 1.6 S or the New Laura VRS in blue shades are very rare to come across.

But I too feel the Blue suits the EcoSport rather well. Were there other colours among the convoy of EcoSports?

Red, blue, all such high maintenance colors! Is there a color which is low maintenance other that white or silver?

In the above picture, doesn't the right hand side windscreen wiper looks to be oddly placed?

Agreed white or silver is low on maintenance. but I doubt Red or blue is high maintenance colors w.r.t say black. we do see plenty of black cars on road isnt it. Black requires equally more maintenance to keep clean

I guess its just that we associate red,blue and other bright colors more suited to young people. (young people typically tend to start with hatchbacks unless dad gifts them a beemer)

So we see plenty of colorful hatches(example i10) but bigger cars start to look so boring in white and silver.

I like this blue, if i am not wrong, it is available in figo as well. But not many manufacturers are providing these kind of shades

Renault got the nice brown shade and hoping that with Ecosport we will have more such Blue and the red/orange shade
