I had purchased Ford Ecosport Titanium (D) on 24 th December, 2017.
Ecosport is not just a mere car like what we see from outside. Its a very much capable car. A car which is built tough, a car which is rock solid stable at triple digit speeds, a car which makes you smile while you throw it at corners, a car which offers pocket friendly maintenance, a car which you can choose for your weekend getaways and much more.
As Indians are very much concerned about "Kitna deti hai" ? I would like to say that the least I have got
on a litre is 12.8 kmpl and the max is 25.8 kmpl depending upon the road conditions and how you are driving the car.
If I need to point out few cons of the car the first thing is the rear seat space. Even though 3 people can fit in easily it's best suited for two. The gigantic A piller provides you a decent blind spot. The stiffer suspension set up enables bit of of those rough road undulations creep in to cabin but at the same time this setup is the main factor behind the rock solid stability of the car. But again all the above mentioned are not deal breakers. Ecosport is really a wonderful companion.
Being a car enthusiast I wanted my car to stand out from the crowd so customised her a little bit and named her BLACKPANTHER because of the all black theme and thats what gives the car a butch look. The stock grille at the front has been replaced with a Raptor style grille with LED lights in them. The Ford lettering on the grille has also been blacked out. Coming down to the bumper, it still has the stock silver finished skid plate and a red coloured dummy tow hook is also installed at the front. Coming to the side profile, the main noticeable change here is the Plati 8 J 16 inch concave wheels and the tyre size has also been upsized from 205 to 225. I have upgraded the brake pads to bosch sintered pads to give the car a better bite and stopping power. The brake calipers are painted in race red colur to go well with the overall aggressive look of the CSUV. Apart from those, it gets blindspot mirrors, Thule ProRide Replica Mounts along with FASS crossbars on the roof and F1 number plates. All the labels on the EcoSport have been removed and the headlights and tail lights are smoked. The headlight now gets projector HID lamps. Just like the exterior it also follows an all-black theme interior where the seatcovers are redone from FASS (faux leather), Black floor lamination. The work on this project had started during the lockdown earlier this year.

To conclude as the tagline says a car with "Family Waali Feeling"
