Do you have any idea on the waiting period on the EcoBoost? Or other variants?

Great pricing by Ford and will likely be cross shopped with a variety of other cars - right from the Fiesta to City and hatchbacks like i20, Polo etc.

This is the first time I am really reading the official review in full (being out of India, no plan of buying one in the near future!) and noticed one thing that's likely a safety hazard - the hatch opens on the wrong side! It would be easier and safer if the hatch was hinged to the right side of the vehicle. Looks like ford took a short cut here and just moved the steering from left to right?

The dealers are also charging 2% processing charges if the Rs 50 K booking is mde using a credit card. Dunno what is the Ford India stand on this.

That's the norm with most dealers. I remember the Toyota dealer also charging 2% if paying by credit card.

OTR Prices for Ecsport in Pune as attached. Absolutely cracker of a deal even the Titanium (o) is!! For just 44k more, you lose the grab handles but get 4 more airbags! :thumbs up


i think Talera Ford has misprinted the pricing in place of pune they have put PCMC and vice versa,how come Pune pricing is cheaper than PCMC pricing,isn`t it meant to be other way around

Re: Ford EcoSport : Official Review
 
Realistic pricing indeed! Good to see that Ford has learned from the Fiesta fiasco. I remember the Fiesta thread went onto a freeze mode when the pricing was announced, and here 15 pages got added in just a few hours after the pricing announcement :)

It will be interesting to see how the dealers manage (or mismanage) the overwhelming response.

with almost a lakh difference between ecoboost titanium and diesel titanium,ecoboost seems to be a good choice for people who have less than 30 kms commute per day

What is incidental expenses? - Rs 8000
Isn't extended warranty too expensive? Rs 10444
And essential pack? Puncture kit and key chain for Rs 4500?

Making hay when the sun shines?

This is weird. The prices are different between dealers? Here's the document from Cauvery Ford, there is a different of ~8K.
I guess incidental expenses includes the 'charges' at the RTO

Re: Ford EcoSport : Official Review
 
While the great amount of Euphoria being generated, I would like to post few observations with regard to last few "exciting" launches :

1) XUV5OO generated this kind of euphoria two years ago. Just because of single factor = pricing. - Also voted COTY by T-BHPians - It belongs to premium SUV category and offers 3 rows of seating. Novelty Factor being only vehicle in >10 Lac - <20 Lac
price bracket.

2) Then came Duster - same thing like XUV5OO - also COTY - belonged to Compact SUV category. Novelty factor - First (after Fusion) Compact real SUV to be offered, 5 seater. Comfortably beat Ertiga for COTY award. Was VFM when launched and gave people option to own a decent SUV (not Scorpioish kind butch) at lower price point.

3) Ertiga - Born to succeed but doesn't create excitement like other cars, due to the SUV crazy mentality. Lost to Duster for COTY.

4) Amaze - Also born to succeed as Honda+Diesel is sureshot recipe for success and the segment it is targeting is the one registering highest sales i.e. compact sedan. Also didn't create much excitement due to not being SUV. Will lose out to EcoSport for COTY.

5) EcoSport - Will walk away with COTY this year and rightly so and created how much excitement we all know.

Next big thing - IMHO as all the manufacturer's are preparing to offer compact SUVs within a year or so, be it MUL, Hyundai, Fiat, etc. I strongly believe that the SX4 based SUV has the potential to give EcoSport a run for its money as it looks stunning and its a Maruti.

They are quoting the same 3 months to every one, only the automatics are being given a long 4 to 6 months wait.

Another swift in the making, book it mid year, get the delivery next year.

Re: Ford EcoSport : Official Review
 
With Ford pricing the Ecosport aggressively, the market will also respond appropriately. It is only going to be better for us customers. Now when can we all expect slashing of prices across models by other manufacturers to counter the Ecosport especially when it eats across a wide range of sedans and premium hatches?

Gizmokid 26th June 2013 20:55

Re: Ford EcoSport : Official Review
 
Fantabulous pricing. I went to Cauvery Ford for their launch program, and requested to upgrade my Titanium booking to Titanium(o). They seem to have received enormous bookings, and everyone from the SA to their Manager & GM spoke to me, and promised to try their best, but I am not too hopeful please:
Hope to get delivery early next week. Apparently they will have the allocation details by friday

pannags 26th June 2013 20:56

Re: Ford EcoSport : Official Review
 
Boy o boy! Ford's pricing of the Ecosport, following FIAT's lip-smacking pricing of the T-Jet, gives a feeling the Indian customer can no more be taken for granted.

Heck! Had Ford managed the release a good 6-12 months sooner, we wouldn't be sighting as many Dusters as we actually do.

TD time folks ... its the EcoBoost Titanium versus the Diesel Titanium.

Well done Ford, you really did undo Fusion and the nuo Fiesta (read fiasco), in one good shot!

Looks like the guys at VW are also following this thread closely and decided to come up with this stupid:. Who knows Swift/i20/Duster might also come up with discounts like this :D
