Default Ford Ecosport prices *possibly* leaked?

Mod Note : Team-BHP's Ford EcoSport Review has been taken live at this link (Ford EcoSport : Official Review). Please continue the discussion on that thread.


My friend chanced upon this bit of info while browsing thru' the website of one of India's Largest Insurer. Could these prices be the official prices of the Ecosport?

The much talked about Ecoboost engine option:

While these could be, an exact 10l ex-showroom seems unlikely. I remember reading that the 10l figure causes a lot of heartburn in states like Karnataka with road tax slab changing significantly. Ford would know for sure. Maybe the insurance guys are testing their systems.

Exactly my thoughts. The exact 10L figure doesn't seem likely. If Ford has to price it at that, they definitely will keep the price at 9,99,999 in Chennai atleast where I believe vehicles above 10L are taxed more.

Anyway, I doubt the insurers know much more than anyone else about the Ecosport's price right now.

There are no variants listed.
EX, Titanium, Titanium Option Pack. The IDV varies with the variants too and there is no diesel demarcation.

There are going to be three engines as per the Ecosport event at Inorbit mall, Pune.

1.0L Ecoboost
1.5L Petrol
1.5L Diesel.

On the side note, 948K for the ecoboost sounds good to me. I hope this is the top end variant.

Good find nonetheless !!

Possibly this can be placeholder till the final pricing is announced by Ford. Since there is no reference to variants etc.

Every manufacturer knows, But no one does anything.

Possible. But then they cant jump the gun either. Not that they should reveal things in this way.
