The only car that has been able to capture the news headlines over the past couple of weeks is the American Automaker's Car - Ford EcoSport. And since, as per Ford's Facebook Page, it is now official that the bookings for the EcoSport are going to begin in June, we have all reasons to find reasons why the car is worth buying. It is being talked about all over auto-car news blogs that the Ford EcoSport's launch date is expected in the month of June and the buyers would get the keys to this new ride by July. We all know that the price-conscious Indian market is already happy to see the price predictions of the car that lie in the range of INR 7-12 Lacs.
First and foremost feature that would capture your attention on the tech specs list of the EcoSport car is the 'EcoBoost engine' that, as Ford claims, will take the turbocharge and direct injection technologies found in advanced diesel engines and pushes them even further. So, EcoSport is featuring an advanced, compact petrol engine that will deliver power to rival a traditional 1.6L petrol engine but with 20% less fuel, thus rendering you and your car, both eco-friendly, whole churning out an incredible 122.5bhp output with maximum torque yield of 170Nm, which is expected to be at 1500rpm. This engine will run on the road upon the classy set of light-weight 16-inch alloy wheels.
Moreover, this urban SUV would be a great buy for someone who is looking to bridge the gap between a Sedan and a SUV. With plenty of space and height, Ford EcoSport has a robust look & agility just like the Renault Duster catering to your SUV needs, while it also delivers comfort of a SUV with all the clever technology.
Ford India can't resist to show off that it is soon going to be the first auto manufacturer in India to offer an emergency assistance system called 'SYNC' when it goes on sale in the country. This life-saver, vehicle-based, no-cost system will be of great help in case the passenger of the EcoSport faces an accident. This call-for-help system will send a critical voice message directly to emergency operators, indicating that a vehicle has been involved in an accident in which the airbags have been deployed or fuel pump shut off triggered and opens the line for hands-free communication. And this all is a one-time setup for the buyer. The company has made clear that there are no additional costs or subscriptions associated with the service.And when we list these features, we are just seeing the tip of the iceberg. There's just so more to see and experience with the EcoSport, be it CO2 emissions being out or the responsive power being in, we will soon be just counting reasons to buy the EcoSport. So, if the exteriors have been able to woo you with sturdy looks, you would be delighted to know that the interiors are equally refreshing. Though the plush insides are similar to that of the Ford Fiesta, we have comfortable seats that are covered with premium upholstery, a powerful air conditioning responsible for cooling (or heating) the entire cabin quickly, power windows, electric remote boot lid opener and an adjustable tilt power steering.So now, even though everything depends on the kind of a buyer you are, as a majority of the market is looking for an official announcement about the pricing, we think this car is going to be a pretty good hit on Indian roads.
