I have heard the Ford cars are high maintenance but I like the Ford EcoSport in terms of design. Please comment if the car is good enough if we talk in terms of maintenance. Also, please mention the actual mileage of the diesel and petrol variants when driving in the city with the AC turned on.

The Ford EcoSport is a wonderful breakthrough made by the Ford team. It has a very high city mileage in both its variants - petrol as well as diesel. The petrol engine has a range of city mileage starting from 13.07kmpl in 1.5 TI VCT MT model and goes till 15.3kmpl in 1.0 EcoBoost trend model. The highway average similarly varies from 15.85kmpl to 18.88kmpl. For the diesel variants the average in the city is 19.3kmpl whereas for highways it is at 22.2kmpl. The maintenance charges are a bit towards the higher side which is a common thing for Ford vehicles. The cost of spare parts is much higher when compared to Maruti or Hyundai cars. Other than this, there is nothing really wrong with the vehicle.
