I am not sure though, but isn't it less in general? A manual diesel motor giving FE of 14kmpl in city? The claimed FE is 20+ I suppose.

The lower variants seem to have got the highest price hike in % terms, whereas the highest variants have a comparatively lower hike .

The Titanium diesel is still below the 10 lakh mark though.

Ford is clearly taking a bit of a haircut on that trim level to keep it under ₹10 lac. It has the lowest percentage price increase among all trims.

For me, it is 12.5 – 13 KMPL on the highway and 8 KMPL in the city. I live in a small city, where the daily consumption is about 20 kilometres only, and most of it is spent crawling in bumper-to-bumper traffic, with the air conditioner turned on.

Thanks for sharing the details.
Interestingly in the lowest Ambiente variant , Petrol prices are increased by 35k but Diesel by 25k despite having same features ! Similar story for Trend and upward variants. Given that market is trending towards Petrol cars currently, to me it seems Ford is clever enough to increase the Petrol prices more than equivalent Diesel prices for exactly same variant.

We have to wait and see if it is going to back fire or accepted by market.

Not sure if this has been discussed already:

1. As per Ford website, Boot capacity of Titanium+ 328L vs 358L on the lower variants - same can be seen on model compare. The brochure given at the showroom doesn't exlicitly call this out, it does however mention foot note (corresponding to the boot capacity value marker) that 358L is for Titanium and Trend+. Wonder if the rear seats on the Titanium+ has a relaxed angle leading to lesser boot space.

2. Also, on the website and as per Ford customer care on the chat, the EBA, HHA, ESC, TCS are present only on the Titanium+ AT model and not on the Titanium+ MT. Can owners of the Titanium+ MT confirm if these are present on the MT variant ?

Thanks

Yes, The navigation using Google maps will use the phone's GPS and mobile data. To save data you may want to cache the maps for your intended route when on WiFi.

I thumbs up. Titanium+ variant at 13 OTR would be at least 3 lakhs cheaper than Creta petrol AT. And not to speak of steering-mounted paddle shifts which Ecosport has as bonus which Creta doesn't have. In fact, is there any other car under 30 lakh OTR which has paddle-shifts?

BTW, there should be a Teambhp review of new Ecosport AT, since engine is new and so is AT box.

The brochure on the website mentions that the above are only available on the AT. That can't be wrong.

Even on the pre-facelift, these features were only on the AT.

The Honda Jazz, City, BR-V, Jetta, Altis to begin with.

Titanium+ MT Diesel does have all the above features. In one of my earlier post after test drive, i did mention about the details of how HHA worked perfectly as it is easy to test in Bangalore roads. There is an explicit button for TCS on/off near to dual USB ports which you can see in all pictures of T+ variants.

There was detailed discussion about this in early November in this same thread immediately after Nov 9th launch and the content in brochure. Indeed these features are not just only for T+ AT but also available for T+ MT variant too.

Really? When did that happen? I think I have been out of sync with latest developments on features front, in cars. Because last time I checked, there weren't many options. Even today I think 40-lakh Fortuner AT doesn't have this feature. Please correct me if I'm wrong again. The older version didn't have.

Yep; the pre-facelift EcoSport doesn't have paddle-shifters (sadly). I'd have loved them on my car; currently, I do gear changes through a toggle-kind of switch on the gear lever itself.

OT: the '08 City version (retailed about 11 lakh OTR) had paddle-shifters.

Yes. My bad. I had even driven one. What's happening to my memory? Coming to Ecosport, I think we need a Teambhp review of this AT car because both the engine and AT box are different from the older ones. Also, for all the effort Ford put in to enhance front visual appeal ( which they have succeeded in), they shouldn't have left the rear untouched. Changes to rear hatch/taillamps/glass would have differentiated it from the older one.
