The highlight of the Ford stall at Auto Expo 2012 New Delhi was Ford Ecosport. This new compact SUV is surly going to be a rage amongst the youth who love to own a SUV that’s top of the line when it comes to quality and technology and easy on the pocket.This gorgeous machine generates a whooping peak power of 120 bhp and massive 170Nm of torque and an extremely low Co2 emission level of 140g/km with its small 1.0 liter 3 cylinder petrol EcoBoost engine which tells a great deal about its superior engineering.

This robust 1.0 liter power plant uses twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) to give immaculate performance and superior fuel economy. Ford will also come up with a 1.5 liter diesel variant. I am sure you must be wondering how such a small engine can generate such high amount of power which is only possible with an engine of 1.6 liter. The superior technology used in this vehicle makes it the next generation SUV.

It doesn’t end with the engine only but the design and styling of the car is just great. All put together is a great product from Ford that can establish them in the emerging markets like India in a big way. It’s expected to be priced between 8 -10 lakhs in India which is going to be a very competitive price for any SUV thanks to its sub 4 meters in length that will provide it with the tax benefits. Despite being a sub 4 meter SUV its front grill allows it a grand presence on the road. The front of the SUV is very muscular and the head lights are stunningly beautiful.

It’s capable of some serious off roading too, thanks to its decent torque. Ford’s EcoSport is going to the first real compact SUV in the market. I am sure competition has taken a serious note of this. EcoSport has created a new Compact SUV segment and I am sure very soon more of such compact SUV’s will come that can give competition to EcoSport. I am sure the Hatchback car sales will surely get affected with the launch of this new Segment. These Pictures I took during my visit to Auto Expo 2012 and I am just facinated with this SUV and I am sure going to buy one.
