Suddenly the Petrol version of a Car seems to be a lucratve offer.
Specially with the Automatic DCT in tow

I know there are enough pics of this car, but I guess one more could not hurt.

Spotted today. This is the 4th/ 5th time I am spotting one.

But whats that badge below 'Titanium' badging?

Fresh pictures are all welcome here. And am so eager to see one in person.

I guess the badge above is the EcoBoost one. Its got a blue green tinge (Not visible in the pic above). But it doesn't look like the familiar TDCi badge which is red.

Im having these queries in fornt ..

The back glasses are looking excellent. But inside review video shows thay are supported on both corners by thick broad plastic frames and from the drivers view, the rear view is heavily blocked because of the small glass area exposed. I wonder why ford did this way..on the other hand in Figo, it is the opposite.

Will traction control and hil llauch support come on all variants or just on petrol AT

Any information ?

HG

This looks like a ecoboost petrol manual transmission. But that is some ugly gap in the rear doors. Why didn't ford do anything about it ?

So after months of waiting there is some good news at last.

Wow thats good news. Just called MPL ford and they said there is no news about launch and they are not taking any bookings yet. The more closer we get to the launch, the confusion about petrol or diesel version keeps crossing the mind.

It looks like going for petrol will be a gamble.

That's by design. You can just stick your fingers in and pull out your laptop bag without even having to open the rear door. Space saving design you see

On a more serious note, happy to see the vehicles being shipped to the dealer stockyards. Just can't wait for the official statement!

I had signed up for keep me informed on Ecosport on Ford India website. Funny today I got a call from them stating that "Sir, we do not have any news on Ecoboost, whenever we will have we will get in touch with you".

Thanks for sharing. They have focussed too much on the panel gaps I guess (for a reason as well). I hope this is a pre-production model & these gaps will be taken care of in the production model. Remember reading on Hyundai Verna (?) in similar lines. The media TD vehicles had a bigger panel gap which was addressed on production variants.

Well, my friend got the same info/update yesterday from Ford India customer care. I hope they give some special drives/event for those early birds who want to know more on the product.

I called up Metro Ford today and asked about the launch details. He told me it's April.

And on calls from Ford on ecosport, I received one too. But it was 6 months ago. :-) and I got the same info as what you guys got yesterday. Nothing changed!!!

I guess the panel gap looks ok to me. The rear hatch on the Eco Sport opens sideways and the hinges are placed inside, so this gap should allow free movement of the hatch when its open towards the hinge side of the rear!
