My budget is 7.75 – 8.25 lakhs, is Ford EcoSport a nice option for family use? We drive less, around 500 kms in a month. What is the mileage of EcoSport in city?

The price of the base variant of petrol EcoSport fits in your budget but the base diesel variant is little expensive, so for that you would need to stretch your budget a little.
Ford EcoSport is a good looking car, interiors also boast of excellent quality materials. Seats are comfortable and offer good support. There is a good sense of space in both the rows. The balance between ride and handling has been well achieved and the EcoSport offers a good blend of both, with the focus more towards comfort.
Ford EcoSport comes in two petrol and a diesel engine options, the petrol options have 1.5 liter Ti-VCT, DOHC engine that discharges peak power of 110 bhp and peak torque of 140 Nm and there is another 1.0 liter Ecoboost petrol engine that discharges peak power of 124 bhp and 170 Nm while the diesel engine is a 1.5 liter DV5 SOHC unit that discharges peak power of 99 bhp and peak torque of 205 Nm.
The ARAI certified mileage of petrol variants of Ford EcoSport is 18.9 kmpl and of diesel variants is 22.27 kmpl while as per user reviews these figures in city driving conditions are 14 kmpl and 17 kmpl respectively.
Other alternative you can consider to Ford EcoSport is Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza; its price is within your budget and has an ARAI claimed mileage of 24.3 kmpl.
