I am confused to choose between Ford EcoSport and Renault Duster, please suggest which one should I buy, my preferences are low maintenance, resale value, driving in agricultural & hilly area.

No doubt, Duster looks more rugged and SUVish than EcoSport. Dimensionally, it is longer and wider than EcoSport, which translates into more cabin space and more room for luggage. Duster also has better ground clearance which makes it a better off roader. But the interiors of the Duster don’t look as sophisticated as EcoSport but the build quality and fit & finish feels better.
The ride quality of Duster is better than EcoSport on highway and off-roads, it simply glides over road irregularities and has impressive handling while EcoSport is more suited to city driving. The steering of Duster is more responsive on highway, the suspension feels more absorbent and straight line stability also feels better. Though the maintenance cost of Ford EcoSport is cheaper and company also has more service centers. So, both cars are best but in different perspective and you cannot find all your preferences in one. I decide you to take a test drive of both cars and decide on your own.
