    Hello All,

    I am seriously in love with Punto and almost finalize it, from last month or so several discussions with my Friends, colleagues one more option has cropped up i.e. Ford Ecosport. I personally like the car, as it gives a SUV feel....and that too at affordable prices (as it seems ) below 10 lakh.

    Just would like to know , what the experts think about this car...

    Not at all expert on the Car, but all ill say is please do TD of both and then decide. Some review reports @ TeamBHP, Youtube videos might give you some hints.

    You are comparing 2 different segment cars my friend.

    Punto is a perfect hatch, whereas Ford Ecosport is stuck in between being a hatch & SUV !!

    I haven't seen Ecosport yet, but the first impression that my friend had at Mantri Mall Bangalore wasn't so great.

    Cheap plastics used in interiors and space inside doesn't qualify it to call it an SUV.

    It looks sporty but not sure how sporty the driver would feel behind the steering wheel though ;)

    Wait until its officially launched, take a TD. I would say, drive Punto after you drive Ecosport, else you might end up buying Punto for sure man :D

    Punto it is!
    What else can you expect to hear from a Fiat forum! :p

    Personally i would want my car to either be a proper hatch or a proper SUV. Ecosport doesn't appeal to me as I find it stuck somewhere in between just to gain the excise duty sop by being under 4m

    Punto it is..Ecosport looks ugly to me when compared with Punto..Ford has compromised a lot on quality..Ford is saying that starting price will be from 5 lacs then u can assume wat qulaity Ford has used in Ecosport..U r comparing Italian hatch with American Compact SUV..Fiat's are more reliable than Ford's..

    See this and decide it yourself, if you are still considering Ford Ecosport or a Fiat Punto 90HP :D

    I tanked up and got these figures on highway for first 70-80 kms run. Somehow managed to take a picture of it.

    I haven't captured the picture of average speed or other details, though I remember it showed 58 km/hr.

    Also, this pic was taken when I was driving from Hubli to Bangalore (450 kms) NH4 and not in city.


    My bad, I shall capture all the details when I trip the odometer and post it during my next trip sometime soon.

    Cheers :thumbup:

    Wow dude, thats impressive mileage. Any factors you followed in getting that high figures. Perhaps you could publish it all over and praise FIAT.
