SEATS:

All the seats are with leather covers on it. Looks sporty with red stiching,fit & finish of the seat covers are excellent.

Front.

They offer good support, comfortable, not too firm nor too soft, ideal for long distance cruising.

Rear:

Have good leg room, knee room, good under thigh support. Actually 6 footer was comfortable. But the width is on short supply.Three well built is difficult to enjoy out there, Average sized adults if three are quite comfortable.

Everyone liked the recline it offered. Comfortable for long journeys.

Steering wheel.

Nice to hold. Very senstive at higher speeds but i would like it to be a bit heavy at city speeds, slightly felt lighter than new fiesta at city speeds.

Has controls for sync & music player.

Power window adjustment switches, Actually there is no tweeter even in the top end variant.

In fiesta this power window adjustment switches are very painful to use, they are not ergonomically good, nice to see they made some adjustment for ecosport, easily falls in to hand.

Door pads have a nice cushion for arm rest.

ABC pedals have good spacing between them, Useful dead pedal.

Brakes are responsive has good bite, Clutch is light, Accelerator is responsive.

Yes the tweeter space is there.But its actually empty inside. When the vehicle has been launched the top end variant was the only variant to get the tweeters as per brochures.

But there has been certain changes in the variants from the vehicles produced from the month of september, 2013. So my car doesnt have the tweeter in it. Mine is produced in the month of september 2013.

Hello everyone,

Recently took my little beast for a long trip. Chennai-Pondy-Yercaud-Pondy-Chennai. Total distance covered 900km. 2 day trip.

Engine:

Since my car has crossed more than 1000km i decided to give an fast driving. You know what, i am amazed by the way the engine performed, absolute gem of an engine. It had enough grunt in it. Even post 120kmph the acceleration was potent.It reached 160kmph in no time, then after it was a bit slow. Managed to reach 180kmph+ speed on an open road. Engine was a little audible at higher speeds but not that intrusive. Even the vibration from the engine is well controlled.

Driving through the hills was also quite good, but it needed frequent gear changes, if you are in the right gear you have the power to pull the car.

Attained 180+kmph.(pic was taken by my co passenger)

A pit stop on the way from Pondy to Yercaud.

HANDLING:

Really amazed by the way this little beast handled. Iniially i was tentitive, because it is an SUV. Later it proved wrong, it was absolutely stable, i did drive it in the way as i used to drive my all new fiesta. It had that gene in it. I simply fell in love with my beast.

Braking was excellent, Car held its line even under hard braking. These goodyear assurance tyres offered excellent grip all through the trip. I dint expect such level of grip from these tyres. When anyone get your ecosport with these goodyear assurance tyres , dont change it.

The broken roads are nightmare of the past, since this is my first SUV i was at home even on the broken roads. Ride quality is stiff at low speeds.

Mileage: 13 kmpl (entire trip, it was a speed drive most of the time, hillstation, cities, highways)

My little beast at rest after the trip.
