I booked the Trend Diesel with them. Not only are they slow, but like I have mentioned previously, I have had problems with the insurance/accessories etc. I somehow get the feeling I picked the wrong dealer.

Econometer, Distance to empty display, Average Fuel economy display,Average Speed display, Outside temperature display

So what does the MFD really mean ? just the total km reading ? Does it even come with trip meters ?
The 2 line MFD in Trend has tripmeter, total kms and it almost ends there and is quite basic. Titanium has 2 screens one 3.5" MFD located in the centre of the dash which contains sync settings, browsing music, contacts etc.
The regular MFD in the instrument cluster with real time mileage, outside temperature, distance to empty etc.
This was one important reason why I had to change my booking from Trend to Titanium. It's a nice set of information so that we don't need to do the calculation.

Autocar India has all the hard stats and numbers that you guys have been looking for. Very good numbers, I must say(except for the estimated price) esp. for the EcoBoost.

Another thing I want to share is that I have learnt from the local dealer that in reality, I could get a call one fine afternoon any day telling me about my allocation. They are being allotted cars almost daily(only Diesel till now), so EcoBoost could come any day and mine would be in the first lot.
In fact, I was so flexible on color front to get speedy delivery, the SM took 4 color choices. I really said "Any color as long as it's NOT black"(A new take on the Ford's legendary statement)

Not to spoil the excitement here. But did anyone feel awkward while getting into the rear seats. The entry/exit felt a bit strained at the rear seats. Not sure if it was just a feeling.

The wipers jutting out on the windscreen was an eyesore from the drivers seat. Probably because they are perfectly hidden on all other Fords.

Otherwise excellent package. The Price ensures the duster would start rolling out discounts pretty soon. I wonder where Ertiga would hide. But then for those who can convince themselves that its a 7/8 seater, it might still look VFM.

Tiny diagrammatic error on ACI's part - the length of 3999 mm is bumper to bumper. Their diagram has it including the spare, although the description below is correct.

A good comparison between Ecosport and Duster.
http://www.autocarindia.com/Video/34...ter-video.aspx .
I felt the comparison was really unbiased with the reviewers pointing out plus and minus on both.
We all love our Cars Big and love to buy at cheap price. Coming months is going to be interesting to see if the consumer prefers Size(i mean the duster) or the Price(I mean the Ecosport).

Also note that they have put the Ecoboost as a 999cc 4 cylinder engine instead of 3. That's a major typo.

Yes, very true. This was also my first thought when I saw the magazine.

But these typos aside, I posted this page from the magazine mainly for the performance figures and the Fuel efficiency info. which were much needed.

Talking Re: Ford EcoSport : Official Review

Finally got my silver titanium optional TDCI on 26 june at 2.45pm after an years wait.The car was personally handed over to me by MR.Sanooj (R.SALES MANAGER FORD INDIA).He said it is the first ecosport to be physically delivered all over India, I was thrilled.

The Mody Ford experience was very satisfying, a team of around 10 people worked very hard for making the all india first delivery possible in hyderabad.They even finished the temporary registration and insurance before 2.45pm.

I will upload some pictures later.

I have taken the delivery of ecosport on 26th june and have covered around 1300km including a highway trip to yadgiri gutta, near hyderabad.

The fuel economy is better than expected.
In city bumper to bumber 1st and 2nd gear..10 to 11km per litre
In city 2nd and 3rd gears mostly...................12kmpl
In city with higher gears..................................13 to 15kmpl
On the highway exclusively at 2000 rpm between 80 to 90km....22.7kmpl
On the highway trip(mostly highway with less city)......................18kmpl.

I am not buying their fuel efficiency figures. Under similar conditions I was getting 10 vs 15 when revved hard and 13 vs 18 when driven sedately.
I would also expect highway mileage to be 15 vs 20 and not what they are claiming.

@Mods - Please delete if this is not appropriate.

Am given to understand (from a reliable supplier to Ford) that Ford has crossed 16,000 bookings of Ecosport as on date & is expected to raise to 24k within this fortnight.
