The Ford EcoSport is a solidly built sub-4 meter compact SUV that is available with petrol, turbo petrol and turbo diesel engines. First launched in 2012, the EcoSport has been one of Ford’s biggest successes in India, and can be credited for kickstarting the sub-4 meter compact SUV segment in India. The EcoSport was the first vehicle in its class to offer a petrol-automatic option, aimed primarily at urban buyers who wanted convenience in a compact SUV. If you’re in the market for a used example with under 50,000 Kms on the odometer in Delhi NCR, you’re at the right place.
You might think your demands are too specific, but even with your specific needs you will be bombarded with innumerable options on leading car websites. Moreover, they will have listings of cars that have not been neatly sorted, and hence are not in a position to give you meaningful insights. How do you arrive at choosing the right car then? Used car websites are usually of little use, even with their multiple filters. The onus of sorting the information remains on you, and who wants to undergo such a hassle? Fortunately, we have got just what you need through the Cartoq TRUE PRICE.
By deploying the Cartoq TRUE PRICE, we help you identify the best deals. The Cartoq Data Science team has built a Machine Learning model that estimates the TRUE PRICE of a used car, after accounting for all sorts of variables – brand, model, age, mileage, and car type. With all factors accounted for, the model predicts the TRUE PRICE, which then becomes the basis of comparison across cars. The best deals are those where listed price is lower than the TRUE PRICE. So, we scan through the car listings across major used car sites, compute their TRUE PRICE, and present the best deals for you.
The shortlist for this article was based on the analysis we ran on September 16th, 2019; so, by the time you read this article, there is a good chance that the specific car may no longer be available. However, this list still provides plenty of useful pointers even if certain specific cars have already been sold out. Without further ado, let’s check out our top recommendations.
2015 Ford EcoSport at Rs. 6.75 lakhs
This Ford EcoSport is just 4 years old, and has run 28,000 Kms. It’s with its first owner, and the low mileage means that it will last for at least five more years. At Rs. 6.75 lakhs, it’s cheaper than even manual hatchbacks. This example is powered by a 1.5 liter TI-VCT 4 cylinder petrol engine that makes 110 Bhp-140 Nm. The automatic gearbox is a 6 speed dual clutch unit, known for its seamless shifts. While this gearbox did see a recall in international markets, India is said to be unaffected by it.
2018 Ford EcoSport at Rs. 8.4 lakhs
in 2018, Ford gave the EcoSport a mid life makeover that focused not just on looks but mechanicals as well. The facelifted EcoSport got a new 1.5 liter-3 cylinder Dragon petrol engine with 121 Bhp-150 Nm, and a new 6 speed torque converter automatic gearbox. An example with this combination that’s just run 11,765 Kms has landed in Gurgaon’s used car market. Buy it before it’s gone.
2015 Ford EcoSport at Rs. 6.25 lakhs
Here’s another pre-facelift EcoSport that’s similar to the first car in this list. It’s run 47,000 Kms and is with its first owner. The asking price of Rs. 6.25 lakhs is par for the course, and what you get is a 1.5 liter-4 cylinder petrol engine and a twin clutch 6 speed automatic gearbox. The trim on this SUV is Titanium, which means that you get Ford’s SYNC interface and a lot of other features as standard fare.
2016 Ford EcoSport at Rs. 6.6 lakhs
Here’s an EcoSport Automatic that’s less than 3 years old, with just 28,855 Kms on the odometer, selling at a very good price of Rs. 6.6 lakhs. Sparingly used, and still with its first owner, this is a solid buy. With a gleaming black paint scheme, the SUV seems very well kept. It’s the top-end trim as well, and uses the 1.5 liter Ti-VCT petrol engine and 6 speed dual clutch automatic gearbox.
2015 Ford EcoSport at Rs. 7 lakhs
This example is slightly pricier than the other models here but is a certified car from Spinny, which gives you buyer protection in case you don’t like the vehicle after living with it for a week or 10 days. It’s very well kept, and gets the same engine and automatic gearbox as the example above. It’s with its first owner, and has done 36,775 Kms.
