Why is Ford talking so much about the Sync system? Isn't this system similar to what the New Fiesta already has? I understand the Sync system does a lot more but I doubt we'll get all the features (like calling emergency services in case of an accidents and installing smartphone apps etc.).

I think this is just a part of Ford's philosophy of having common parts and a global theme behind all their vehicles. They might have missed the boat with the new Fiesta but will get the Sync in all future cars in India.

Cool Re: Ford EcoSport Preview @ Auto Expo 2012. EDIT : Indian Spy Pics on Pg. 33

Is it only Me or does anyone else also seem to feel the same as my silly mind?

Can this be called inspiration ?

I just created the below graphic to visualize what i felt when i saw the EcoSport. It seems to have the same front facia as the VW Polo/Vento.. The huge open mouth grill below the EcoSport makes it feel that itss a new design..

Check it out yourselves!!

While we'd all love more information on this project, I'm sure you don't want to jeopardize your job and career for this. Reveal information keeping that mind

That said, what's the probable launch date considering the assembly line pieces are still being made.

Wow, he's all praises for the car and for Ford. Very well contained body roll, nicely balanced ride versus grip and all those features, really impressed!

Cant get to wait for its launch in India. So the launch is more or less finalized to be Jan2013 then?

How does the India bound car compare with what we have been seeing in online videos/pics in terms of its road stance? I finally decided to cancel my Dzire ZDI booking and go for this one. Did a TD of the fiesta to get the best guess feel of what it could be line (atleast the engine), and I am sold. Only worry is the sub 4 meter dimension shouldn't impede the leg space and overall appearance.

No. Its not just you.
This is exactly what came to my mind when I first saw Ecosport in picture.
Looks like a Polo is perched on top of another car!

Any idea on how the pricing is going to be ?

As far as reports from various sources are concerned ,Ecosport would surely be a game changer if pricing goes the sensible way. If the American manufacturer repeats the pricing stratergy they adopted in the case of Fiesta sedan , Ecosport would be the latest addition to the list of 'World class product that have failed due to wrong pricing'.

Too good to be true. If they manage to pull off that kind of pricing, Duster is gonna be dusted.

But this long wait for the launch has already made potential buyers think about other options. And this ever increasing fuel prices is sure gonna be a factor.
