Today an acquaintance(friends friend) & me had a little argument.He said EcoSport is a Flop(present tense not future tense in meaning). I said how can you say that & another friend added there were around 30,000 bookings in waiting.Then that guy was like two cars were toppled by journalists. To which i added that i only knew one had(i guess i am right).So cos the car could be toppled its a flop.
I told him until the car has an Electronic Stability Program almost all decent cars can be toppled.That should not make one call it a flop rather maybe a flaw.I told him Santro could be toppled at corners too that does not mean it was a flop.
I personally feel Ford wanted to bank on its ground clearance on this car for hatchback buyers & sedan users who would complain about gc but wanted a car with good gc.
Have many asked you about this?I feel other than space this toppling issue or concern is the next hurdle for this car in the public eye.
Now "vicky90" my question to you is
Have you made emergency lane changes(or similar) at above 80 & taken corners at high speed? If yes what is your opinion,is it the steering feel making the driver overconfident?Is there a hint of sway to alert the driver he is reaching the limits of the cars center of gravity?
Or do you feel the journalist was driving it like a Skoda RS
