Re: TAI Exclusive! Ford EcoSport Official Website Link

I don't know how I ignored this thread for so long, I was just going through the Ford India website and saw the news for EcoSport !! Came back to TAI in anticipation of disclosing about it here, disappointed !! It was already here, ages ago. I am too slow I guess. [sleep]

Anyway, has Ford disclosed its prices yet ? I hope they do not repeat the mistake they did with the New Fiesta. With the looks this machine is carrying, it could again become a game changer after XUV500, if placed appropriately !!

My guess would be around between 9.5L to 12L bracket.

Nice, but the front seems to be a bit overdone. Trying for a look similar to the Fortuner? I love the alloys though, Ford alloys are generally mediocre in looks.
