Ford EcoSport is one of the most awaited SUV in 2013 like the Duster which made its debut in 2013. The two SUV’s will compete with each in the SUV space and for the first times in India then have been spotted together (seems like Chennai).
The EcoSport looks slightly smaller when compared to the Duster and is also lower, but seems sportier. The launch date of the EcoSport has not been confirmed and there rumors floating of the same being introduced in March. Ford will offer the 1.0 litre Ecoboost petrol and 1.5 diesel engine options and we can also expect an automatic as surprise.
Both the SUV’s spotted are diesel powered and there seems to be slight chaos as to what the two SUVs doing together. Prospective customers who are confused between the EcoSport & Duster can have a glimpse to understand which SUV will better suit their needs.
Ford will certainly play the pricing card, hopefully learning from their previous mistake from high pricing the new Fiesta. The American car maker is expecting the EcoSport to be a volume player like the Figo hatch.
