My friend forwarded this pic. Looks like NH. I dont think we will get to see the car up close. Dont think we will get a chance to click the interiors. Anyways, I'm going to give it a shot.

Thanks to Nareshkumaran A. for sharing these pictures of the EcoSport testing in Chennai!

Note the different wheel designs, and the small sweep of the rear wiper.

Thanks for those pics Rehaan. As my friend pointed out, the interiors are similar to the new Fiesta. Now the hunt for pics of the interior begins as the vehicle is doing some tests in Cochin.!

I guess we can't expect more from the rear wiper considering the short height of the rear glass. Anyway, reverse sensors and camera would be a must IMO. I hope they don't restrict it to just Titanium trim.

Interesting to see alloy for the spare wheel and steel rims with caps for the 4 tyres in the red ES. We've seen it the other way round for other vehicles but this combination is something new!

Am I being overly particular or does this model look like the new ford fiesta on a jacked up suspension. i dont know, but I find the front looking extremly out of place. Specially on the red model. The black trim at the bottom makes it look like its a feista plonked on top of an SUV'ish base.

The darker colors look a bit better, but then these are night photos, so maybe looking at them in broad daylight may change my view of them.

I don't know why, but I am getting a feeling that Ford is going to hit it's rival's (Quanto/Duster) where it hurts the most; i.e. pricing.

One thing is for sure, the roof rails do make a difference. The Ecosport looks like a hatch on steroids without the rails. One question if you buy a base model or a model without the roof rails can we fit them from the company before purchasing?

Sorry if I am not reading it right... have you folks got the test vehicles already and we can expect an awesome review soon?

Nice pictures there Rehaan. I think the Ecosport looks better in darker colours. Since the interiors are shared with the Fiesta, I hope they have improved the plastic quality of the lower portion of the dash. I sat inside a new Fiesta just when it had launched and was appalled at the quality of the lower dash. Fingers crossed !

I think he was referring to the sharing of the pictures with us !

Wow, the Yellow looks awesome, I have always upheld the belief that the colour Yellow looks good on either Lambhorginis or Bumblebee aka Chevrolet Camaro but I guess Ecosport can join that league. Will have to look properly before I can make the final call.

Don't the cars look like Hot Wheels, they are mean looking fellas aren't they? Something like a cute but angry cat.

Something about that red ES side profile is jarring. Perhaps it is the way the rear glass does not flow from the C pillar or does not match with it. I am not really sure.

But from the rear three quarters angle it looks like a modified Manza on stilts. That cannot be a good thing.

The interiors better be good on this!

From those pictures posted by Rehaan, the interiors should be more or less same as the china version.

It would either be the center console of the Fiesta sedan or the EcoSport. The pic seems to be photographed perfectly. So I conclude it to be a snap posted from some photo session and not a spy pic.
Any scoop drive of the Ecosport to report ?

There is one prominent gap where rear wind screen meets rear quarter glass when closed, which is gaping like hell and very prominent in orange ES.
You can see it in the pic
