It is a widely known fact that the Ford India is very close to launching the EcoSport in India and we reported in considerable detail when it emerged that Ford India dealerships across the country have already started receiving the first batch of cars.
Ford India has so far refrained from announcing the prices but one of our dear readers, Sumit, from Delhi claims to have got a fair idea of prices from the Delhi dealer. If these prices are anything to go by, it seems like Ford India has a winner in its hands. Also, as we have been expecting, heavy localization levels surely have resulted into an ultra competitive pricing. However, we still wish to wait for Ford India to announce the prices before claiming that these indeed are the prices of the hotly anticipated compact crossover.
As per the list that Sumit has got from the Delhi dealership, ex showroom (Delhi) prices for Ford EcoSport would be as follows-
1.5 Petrol variant
1.5 Petrol Ambiente – 6.5 L
1.5 Petrol Trend – 7 L
1.5 Petrol Titanium Manual Transmission – 7.5 L
1.5 Petrol Titanium Automatic Transmission – 8.5 L
1.0 Petrol variant
1.0 Petrol Titanium Manual Transmission – 9.0 L
1.0 Petrol Titanium + Option – 9.75 L
1.5 Diesel variant
1.5 Diesel Ambiente – 8.5 L
1.5 Diesel Trend – 9 L
1.5 Diesel Titanium 9.5 L
1.5 Diesel Titanium + Option – 10 L

The Ford EcoSport will come to us in as many as three engine variants. The base engine variant will sport the same 1.5 litre normally aspirated petrol engine that powers the Fiesta. The second petrol engine variant will have the much hyped Ford EcoBoost 1.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine. The third engine variant, and the one that will be seen bringing the volumes, will be powered by the Fiesta’s 1.5 litre turbocharged diesel engine.
The Ford Ecosport will be sold in four trim levels- Ambiente, Trend, Titanium and Titanium Plus. The Titanium variant will be available only with the 1 Liter EcoBoost turbocharged petrol and 1.5 Liter Ti-VCT petrol engine. The Titanium trim level brings along 6 speed PowerShift dual clutch automatic transmission for the 1.5 liter Ti-VCT petrol.
The Ford EcoSport will be launched in as many as 7 color options. The Titanium variant will get Smart Keyless entry and Push Button Start. The SYNC emergency system will come in the top two variants. The two top of the line variants will also get a CD/MP3 player and a 3.5-inch multifunction display.
The EcoSport will come in two interior colour options- Charcoal Black + Warm neutral gray (on all variants except on Titanium (O) and Charcoal Black + dark shadow gray (on Titanium (O)).
