The Ford EcoSport is taking its own sweet to come to the Indian car market. Enough has been said about the compact crossover and we remember posting that the EcoSport might not make it to our car bazaar before August this year.
Ford India has been busy testing the car in various parts of the country and reports have arrived that many North India Ford dealerships have even commenced taking the bookings of this car.
Enough has also been discussed about the Ford EcoBoost turbocharged petrol engine that powers the upcoming compact SUV. Rushlane.com is now saying that EcoBoost equipped EcoSport is currently undergoing the final phase of the ARAI testing and has got an ARAI certified mileage of around 17 kmpl.
Considering that the EcoBoost has a power output of 123bhp and is as powerful as a 1.5litres NA motor, such a FE is nothing short of being commendable.
The Ford EcoSport will also get a 1.5 litre diesel engine when launched in India.
