Ford pioneered the sub-compact SUV segment with its EcoSport which has been its best-seller since its launch. EcoSport is a well-built car that is a joy to drive and therefore a favourite of enthusiasts. A used EcoSport is ideal for those looking a for feature-rich, stylish SUV that is good to drive–both in the city and on highways. Ford’s initiative to reduce the service cost makes EcoSport an excellent buy on the used car market. EcoSport currently costs Rs. 8.82 lakh to Rs. 13 lakh on the new car market.
An EcoSport with under 100,000 km averages around Rs 6,05,000 in Bangalore with lower end tending to be around Rs 5,72,500 and upper end tending to be around Rs 6,83,875.. So, what should you go for? Which are the best deals available on the market?
Recommendation #1: Ford EcoSport Titanium+ 1.5L TDCi 2014
Year: 2014 / Kms Driven: 79,000 / List Price: Rs 603,900 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs 1,044,000
This entry, which comes at a discount of 42% to its original price is 5 years old and has done 79,000 Kms. This diesel-powered, white EcoSport is currently with its first owner. While 80,000 km is a lot, you are getting the feature-packed top end version at half its on-road price. We do think there is decent margin for negotiation–so get the car checked and if everything is okay, negotiate it down by at least Rs. 50,000.
Recommendation #2: Ford EcoSport 1.5 Titanium TDCi Opt
Year: 2014 / Kms Driven: 53,051 / List Price: Rs 710,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs 971,000
This entry, which comes at a discount of 27% to its original price is 5 years old and has done 53,051 Kms. Currently with its first owner, this white coloured EcoSport comes with a diesel powerplant. Another top-end version but with fewer kms than the first entry is available at 40% off compared with on-road price. We suggest you first check the car, including tyres and brake pads, and then depending on the condition, negotiate the price down.
Recommendation #3: Ford EcoSport Titanium 1.5L TDCi 2015
Year: 2015 / Kms Driven: 55,000 / List Price: Rs 825,000 / Ex Showroom Price: Rs 1,044,000
This entry, which comes at a discount of 21% to its original price is 4 years old and has done 55,000 Kms. Currently with its first owner, this white coloured EcoSport comes with a diesel powerplant. The only diesel on the list, its priced a bit too aggressively in our opinion. And there is a chance that you might need to change tyres too…so we think that you could negotiate this down by at least Rs. 75,000.
