Ford Eco Sport continues to be a popular choice at the Auto car

1a

Delhi Ford Eco Sport the long termer that I, and almost everyone else on the team, race towards at the end of the day. I do get lucky sometimes. While the generous 200mm ground clearance helps me tackle those rowdy speed breakers even with a full complement of passengers and luggage, it’s the EcoSport’s compact dimensions that make me a fan. It’s easy to punt around town, squeeze through traffic.

The visibility from the driver’s seat isn’t particularly great despite the elevated driving position. It took me a few days to get used to the thick A- and D-pillars. But the front seats are very comfortable and offer good support, while the rake and reach adjustable steering wheel makes it easy to find a good driving position.

The other thing that appeals is the EcoSport’s willingness to attack corners. I love the fact that it is agile and genuinely fun to drive despite being a compact SUV. The light steering is a boon in the city and at highway speeds, you have a good idea of what the front wheels are up to. This instils a good amount of confidence and it can be driven around bends at car-like speeds.
