Chill is very different from Silver, it doesn't look like the Dzire shade at all. The shade is not appealing to a lot of people. It sort of absorbs the surrounding colour and is quite unique.

There was a post on this very thread that had a link to pics of a get-together in mexico by the owners of Ecosports. That link had over 50-60 pictures and had the vehicle in every colour sold (barring yellow).

I paid a lac to get ahead of the queue cause i've driven the fiesta 1.5 diesel and seen the Ecosport enough to know it suits my requirement.

Talera Ford Pune is not asking for 1 lac. I checked with them today, and the booking amount is still 50k.

I checked with the Talera Ford, Nigdi showroom caz that's the nearest to my place. Also I asked the same question on Ford website's live chat and the Ford consultant said "We will get back to you later". May be they know that some dealers are trying to cash in.

To all those who have pre-booked,

Have you received any unique allocation number from your dealer? Or does it happen after launch?

EcoSport rolling out from Chennai Plant and being dispatched to dealers across India. The first car in Red looks to be Trend variant.

We have the New Fiesta in Chill, was talking about that, the website colour and real life is quite a contrast. To see the EcoSport in any colour, you have to wait.

Very detailed information on the website, though I do not see colour options and 360 degree view option.

The list of accessories is very impressive.

I compared the length and breadth of the vehicle against my Getz and it is almost similar, ecosport has an additional 100 mm length and width. Now I need to see how much space optimization Ford has done. If they are able to match close to the benchmark created by Honda with Amaze, I will be very impressed.

I was browsing the features on Ford's website and really surprised to note that the 1.5 Diesel Ecosport shows Smart keyless entry as standard even on the Titanium model.

I always thought that the side curtain airbags and keyless entry/start is offered only on the top Titanium (o) model. Is it a mistake on Ford's part or are they really offering keyless entry on titanium, would be an icing on the cake.

All depends on the pricing now, ready to book mine in Mars Red

I just looked through the specs - is the EcoSport the cheapest car you can buy in India which has ISOFIX child seat mounting points? If so, hats off to Ford for not skimping on this feature.

Now, if only parents would buy child seats and strap their kids in ...

The site displays a long list of Accessories, many of them not seen so far with other manufacturers at this range.
1.Bug Deflector
2.Roof styling rails and cross bars.
3.Headlamp guard. This looks interesting.

The 15inch alloy wheels seems to be from New Fiesta not seen in any picture captured so far.

Was surfing through the various Models available.Man the Titanium is loaded!! Anything in the range of 11lacs on road is a steal for this model.
The trend is well loaded as well by industry standards but Titanium makes this look like basic.

Many picture show Ecosport with M/T(well almost) tread pattern tires,looks nice.
