Was getting bored at home so decided to give a shot at Ecosport pricing.Hope you people don't mind.
I have kept in mind Hormazd Sorabjee's tweet that Ecosport price will start sub 6 lacs,the details about the leaked variants by corageous and have taken VW Polo as a comparison parameter. PETROL-
The ES's ambiente variant can be compared to the Polo's comfortline.
ES gets a 1500cc engine so it will be eligible for a higher excise duty i.e. 24%.Also it gets a better music system,non body coloured ORVMs,15 inch wheels,no rear power windows,no parcel tray,no front fog lamps,no rear defogger and no rear wiper. VW Polo's comfortline
price-5.38 lac(ex-showroom Delhi)
Considering all the factors, Ford ES ambiente
price-5.99 lac(ex-showroom Delhi)
The Es's trend variant can be compared to the Polo's highline.
Both cars come with ABS
as standard.However Polo gets airbags,reverse parking sensors,alloy wheels,leather wrapped steering and handbrake and climatronic ac whereas ES scores in having EBD
,rear power point and 60:40 split seats.Rest all the features are comparable. VW Polo's highline
price-5.84 lac(ex-showroom Delhi) Ford ES trend price
-6.30 lac(ex-showroom Delhi)
The ES's Titanium MT variant.
It is powered by the highly acclaimed 1 litre Ecoboost engine.Cost of this engine will be high as it is fully imported and is highly advanced.Some of the higher cost will be mitigated by the decrease in excise duty.
Coming to the features-
It will have Auto AC,16 inch alloy wheels,SYNC system,Cooled glovebox,front armrest,front fog lamps,roof rails,airbags and reverse parking sensors. Ford ES titanium MT
price-7.05 lac(ex-showroom Delhi) Ford ES titanium AT
(since it will get a dual clutch gearbox and will be subjected to higher excise duty because of the 1500cc engine) price-8.30 lac(ex-showroom Delhi)
Will be eligible for lesser excise duty.Adding 90k to the petrol respectively. ES's Ambiente
