In addition to the VGT for the diesel, the list for the Titanium trim includes tinted glass. This is a good move considering film is gone.

Hope cops don't start harassing Ecosport owners.

Hard to believe those prices, there is so much difference in features between titanium and trend like airbags, keyless entry/start, alloys, Sync with 3.5 inch MFD etc and only a price difference of 50k

If that is true, i can hardly see any takers for Trend, Titanium would be pure VFM, if Trend is at 9L, according to me Titanium should have been around 9.9 unless Ford really wants to freak every one out with such a competitive pricing.

If this were true the petrol is correctly priced for me at least but the diesel seems to be off by 1L Isn't Diesel Variant = Petrol Variant + 1 L generally?

i dont think theres going to be such a difference between the 1.5 MT Titanium version and the Ecoboost MT model. There will be hardly any takers for the ecoboost MT in such a case as customers would surely gravitate towards the 1.5 MT.

If the prices quoted are correct, I think only the 1.5 petrol seems to be priced correctly.

There is 2L difference between 1.5 petrol variants and corresponding 1.5 diesel variants, which is probably the highest difference between petrol and diesel variants in any car in the segment. Even the new Fiesta, which uses the same petrol/diesel engines has only about 1.16L price difference between petrol and diesel variants (comparing prices for Titaninum+ MT variants). Going by that, I think the diesel variant should've been price atleast 75K lower. It seems to me that Ford is using the Ecoboost engine in between 1.5P and 1.5D Ecosport variants to artificially inflate the prices of the diesel variant. However, the diesel pricing might yet work for Ford as it still significantly undercuts the Duster, which is also poorly equipped compared to the Ecosport.

The 1.5L premium for Ecoboost over 1.5P engine also seems

And ex showroom Bangalore would cross the magic 10L figure, so OTR would be close to 11.5L. Thats what ford calls aggressive pricing on a sub 4m vehicle.

Now petrol seems to be VFM.
Well Im waiting for the official release and then decide.

Its better to wait for the pricing to come out rather than speculate and analyse Fords strategies and decisions.

nobody seems to be buying electric blue ? blue doesnt go well with us Indians is it ?

Yes. But the brochure indicates otherwise.

Look at the last two pages and the asterisk.
