As one can derive from the above table, there are ample safety features on offer for the Ford Ecosport, but all the variants do not possess them. The base variant misses out on every feature except the bare minimum, only the middle and top variants are fully equipped. There should be a certain level of uniformity among the variants. Moreover, some of the middle variants miss out on ISOFIX child seat mounts which is a bit disappointing and Ford should rectify this.

Studying the above table, it can be concluded that there are plenty of comfort and convenience features associated with the Ford Ecosport. The distribution is similar to the above department, which means that the lower variants miss out on a lot of features and there is no uniformity. However, for a vehicle of this segment, missing out on rear AC vents is a big omission. Cars from a segment below are equipped with this feature and Ford should rectify this. Nonetheless, Ford has been generous enough to provide ample convenience inducing features and people who can afford to buy middle or top variants will enjoy them.

There are ample entertainment and connectivity features inside the cabin of the Ford Ecosport. The base variants miss out on some features but the middle and top variants are equipped with plenty of kits that enhance the interior experience pleasant. However, it is worth noting that the middle variants get a 9-inch touchscreen without Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and the top variant get an 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto which is a strange setup. Nonetheless, Ford Ecosport has the potential to make the experience pleasant and worthwhile for the passengers.

Conclusion

Ford Ecosport is a game-changer compact SUV for the brand which helped them to strengthen their image in the industry once again. It gets two capable engines (petrol and diesel) which are a boon to drive in the city and on the highway. Apart from versatility, the diesel powertrain will return decent fuel economy figures. There is a lack of uniformity in the trim levels for the Ecosport but that is not a deal-breaker. From the analysis of all departments and features, the most value for money variants turn out to be SE Diesel and SE Petrol. This middle variant gets almost all the bells and whistles which the top trim gets but at a significantly lower price.
