Or is this some fancy headlight set up which does not allow for such simple mods?

All I had to do on my Swift was to upgrade the headlamp bulbs to Philips 100/90, with a total cost of Rs. 1500, and all poor lighting woes disappeared. Wondering if the same thing is possible on the Ecosport.
I wouldn't recommend going with 100/90 on any headlamp, especially on a projector. H7 4300K 35W HID conversion kit works very well on EcoSport low beam. I have the same setup on my car. Its a brilliant investment.

Hey guys, I’m in the market for an automatic car with ground clearance and power. Fuel economy isn’t a factor.

So far I’ve narrowed down to

Ford Eco Sport AT, Maruti Ignis and the Tata Nexon diesel/petrol AT

Questions about the Eco Sport,
1. How good is the feedback on the automatic? I’ll test drive one soon but does it feel under powered?
2. Also is there an option for the sunroof on the automatic version?
3. Can we upgrade the internal sound system including the speakers and if yes, does it void the warranty?

Hi,
I bought an Ecosport Titanium Plus AT recently after extensive research. So may be I can help.
Better car around 10L? Well, you need to elaborate your requirements requirements a bit more. Since you are considering Ecosport AT, I will assume that you are looking for Petrol automatics only.

Ecosport AT: Low mileage. Low on space. Ride quality ok. It handles rought surfaces well, but when left and right wheels face different obstacles, the whole car topples left right. May be the suspensions are not independent?
On plus side, car feels very solid. Probably better than any other in its price range. I like the steering very much. Large touchscreen is also useful. Both front and rear seats have superb thigh support. ORVMs have good visibility. For hills, you can use the LO mode.

Jazz CVT: Has rubber band effect. Rear seat thigh support is poor. Engine is super smooth. Front seats are very comfortable. I might have picked it if it had better rear seats.

Duster CVT: Very well priced. But feels really sluggish. Some essentials like driver seat height adjustment are missing. Ride quality is the best you can get.

Nexon: Overall a good package. I rejected because of lack of 6 airbags, and AMT. Also the seats were not to my liking. It may suit you.
But if it is space that you are really looking for, then better to go with sedans. In your budget, you get Ciaz AT and Sunny CVT.

1. Is there a better car available around 10 lakhs . I am not a Maruti fan so no Brezza for me
2. If Ecosport is the one, should i go for 1 L Ecoboost engine or 1.5L Dragon engine?

I drive to Pune/Panchgini once a month and would like to make long trips in this car. I like powerful cars, not the ones that drag on a climb. FE is not that much of a concern as I drive only on weekends and there is not much running for the car.

Is Ford Eco sport a good car for hills? Is it the best pick for the budget I mentioned?

Please help !!

I recently got Ecosport Titanium plus AT, and it does feel underpowered to me. Although to be fair, I drive only in the D mode, not S mode.

No sunroof on automatic versions.

No idea about sound system upgrade.
------------------------------------------------

Has Ecosport been crash tested by NCAP? With nexon scoring a 5 star, Ecosport should really not be lower.
