Hello Jugal !!
Although the company claims ARAI mileage is 22.7 kmpl / 4.4 L/100 km (1.5L Diesel).But diesel model of car should be able to deliver an average of about 20 - 23kmpl.
As far as its look then I have no doubt and complaint with this car. But as mentioned about its performance, then I think it can also be considered as a drawback in city. No doubt, it has an appealing beauty that can easily attract any buyer but what about the mileage; it gives me 12km/liter. I don’t think this car is fuel efficient. Think well before buying this car.
Well I think diesel model of the car offers good mileage. For long I have been looking for a car which is highly stylish yet giving me a decent mileage. It is better and bigger than the previous Ford cars and delivers 20kmpl mileage which I think is excellent. I have heard people say it is high on maintenance but for me it is a bargain. My family gives the car a big thumb up.
Ford Eco sport diesel is a nice frugal mini SUV. It is powered by a 1.5 Ltr, 4 Cylinder, DV5 diesel engine which produces 89 bhp @ 3750 RPM and a torque of 204 Nm @ 2000 RPM. This engine coupled with innovative wind-resistance-reducing "Teardrop" design gives an impressive mileage of 22.67 Kmpl (ARAI certified figure). In real world conditions, the diesel engine manages to give around 14-15 Kmpl on city roads and 18-19 Kmpl on highways.Though, the actual delivered mileage largely depends on driving habits and traffic conditions.
