The sidewalls for both of them are 50% of the section (205 or 215).

205/50 has a sidewall height of 102.5mm while 215/50 has a sidewall height of 107.5 mm.

That's 5mm sidewall increase.

Apart from the sidewall height, the quality of Bridgestone Ecopia is causing all the issues.

I have picked up ES Petrol Signature (Manual) last week (write-up in progress).

I was curious to know what average are fellow owners getting?

Thanks in advance!

Any recent Ecosport buyers from chennai? I was offered the below quote from HANS Ford and it doesnt look VFM for me. Should i consider the Verna?

Diesel Versions: (On Road Price with 3rd & 4th yr warranty)
S Model - 1448000
Signature Model - 1348000

You might be better off with Verna at the price of the S version of Ecosport. It is more comfortable and has similar goodies inside with the addition of air cooled seats - most important in Chennai. Seating in the Verna is also cramped for 5 so both cars are similar. The 1.6 L engine in the Verna should definitely be better than the Ford options.

I got my S at 14L on road with 5 years warranty, so you can bring down the quote. This was in Pune where road tax is 14% (Chennai is 10% IIRC). The first item to target should be the insurance which will definitely be hugely inflated. Do also transfer you existing car's NCB if you can.


Edit: Just checked and TN tax for vehicles above 10L is 15%, so check insurance and bargain for some cash discounts / free extended warranty.

Missing rear ac vents will be deal breaker for many, I guess!
Cooling is fast and Effective. The strong AC has always been a plus in the Ecosport.
I guess the AC is strong in the Figo twins too.

Hi

I am confused about a feature which shows on MID

In Settings of Vehicle there is an option of Auto Engine Off

What does this feature do

It turns off the engine after idling for 30 minutes. Even if you disable it, it will reset itself to enabled next time car starts.

Well it may not be relevant to this thread but couldn't find a better place to share it, so here I'm posting a video I found on youtube. Is this still a concern for ecoboost owners/buyers and do we have any official response from Ford regarding this. Infact is there any such problem with Ford ecoboost in India?

This is really shocking ! Never imagined a popular car like Fiesta ST to be plagued by these issues In India the 1L Ecoboost is perhaps the least sold variant and now its available only in one trim.
