The Ford EcoSport is expected to be one of the significant launches to take place next year and the Dearborn-based auto giant will be rolling out the compact SUV in February 2013 from its Maraimalainagar plant in Chennai

Nothing beats red though . But advantage with black is you can paint the front grill in black and close that open mouth!!

I kind of feel this will be one car which will look hot in most flashy & hard colors. Orange looks hot, white looks classy & black complements the chrome grill! If they launch the kinetic blue from new Fiesta, am sure it's gonna be stunning as well!

That are really the beautiful set of pics, giving an exhaustive details about the Ecosport.
It seems to be another much anticipated High Voltage launch after Renault Duster, in India.

I heard that the car will have all the colour options which is currently present on the current fiesta only the Orange would be added and it might even get an option of green and midnight grey kinda shade and With blue interior LED the midnight grey shade would look stunning! I would surely buy it for just this.

Yes, of course everyone at team-bhp is looking forward to it.
The Ludhiana Dealer quotes the same November date for showroom display and Jan 2013 for delivery starting

I feel the Ecosport pricing will not undercut that of duster by much. If they try to be too aggressive on the price, it will definitely cannibalize the sales of new fiesta which is already struggling.
Assuming they price it similar to duster I think this will definitely set the sales chart on fire.

This month Autocar they are mentioning about the new Fiesta and is going to come in early next year. There, they are mentioning about two variant of Ecoboost engines. 99 bhp and 123 BHP. (Hopefully in ecosport we will get the 123 Bhp one.) They are saying about exporting ecoboost engine from India. So obviously I think ecosport will have localized ecoboost engine

Any chance of the Ecosport coming with a 120bhp FGT version of the 1.5L Diesel engine??

No they're talking about the Fiesta hatch. Also, the sedan will get a face-lift and that wouldn't look too different from the hatch.

Let's stick to the topic, shall we?

To clarify on the question about facelift for the New Fiesta, the hatch back will not come to India, but the Indian new Fiesta will have face lift. (And by looking at the pictures, it will not be a small facelift, it gets a new face)

As about the diesel engine, Ford is tight-lipped, so I am expecting some surprise on this front. Even I am expecting a different variant than the one in the New Fiesta

Somehow I get the feel of Ford Escape with different engine. The looks from back very similar, the height and width also pretty close.
