That would give an idea on PTW ratio.

Yes. It is missing . I was also trying to find it because I want to know it for comparison of 1.0L Ecoboost Engine performance.
I have a complete Detail brocure given by Ford Showroom but Kerb Weight is not mentioned anywhere.

I am pleasantly surprised to see the mid variant trend so loaded with features like ABS EBD, rear wiper, driver seat height adjustment etc. And the pricing is spot-on! Advance Congratulations ford, you gotta winner! This car has the potential to even topple the best selling Bolero, let alone the duster.

Awesome pricing.clap: I had booked the 1.5l petrol manual ecosport (yearly running will not exceed 9K/10K kms). My budget was 10 lacs.
Will be saving a whopping 1.3 lacs... Time for some accessories shopping.
super like the refrigerator..:thumbs up

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a winner for the "Car of the year 2013"!

2 fantastically priced products on 2 consecutive days! Would this single-handedly revive the Indian auto industry?

Or is that your final price with add-ons?

Congratulations anyway, it's an awesome car to drive.

Thank you!!. It's 9.16 ex showroom here. 15% Road tax which is around 1.4lacs and 20-30 K insurance after NCB. Mudflaps,Mats another 5K. All this comes close to 11L. The accessories should cost around 10-15K.

I had the condition with dealer that 11-11.5l for Titanium, i am buying it. Ford has given me a bonus by pricing Titanium+ at 11 :)

This has to be one of the milestones for Indian Automotive Industry.
2 days. 2 fantastically priced products beating the estimates of even the most optimistic people. Bringing affordable performance biking and affordable mini-SUV to the public.
I want more now. When can we expect the 4X4 version :D

I definitely am not from the last category and just do not see ford taking steps to ensure transparency in the booking process. It is pretty much about how well you can pressurize or get along with the dealer to jump the queue and get the vehicle fast. I don't see the dealers resisting the urge to make an extra buck in the process.

Am already unhappy with the Thane Dealer Shreeji Ford.
..

My feelings are the exact same as yours. Car is good, Price is good but what about dealers?

Last time when i went for a service with Chennai Ford here, i could see all the SAs were overloaded. Even i heard it from ASC guys out there. So After sale service is gona hit if the vehicle sold out in high volume in short period.

Now hearing pre-sale woes by dealers, from our forum members.

Its high time for Ford to step in and regulate their dealer network to achieve the full success of this wonderful car.

And... M&M stock market got a hit too

Re: Ford EcoSport : Official Review
 
About 15 pages of posts on this thread in one day is a direct read on the excitement around this car. Ford has done a "your move next" to almost everyone else selling premium hatchbacks, compact SUVs etc in India in the 5 to 10 lakh segment by pricing this car so aggressively. Maybe they should just stop selling their own Fiesta, considering how much overpriced that is, in comparison.
