Indian car buyers waited a long time to get an EcoSport as Ford took their time before going ahead with a sensational launch. Even now, after the EcoSport has hit showrooms, buyers will require a fair bit of patience as the waiting list for the EcoSport is quite long.

Despite rumours to the contrary, dealerships are accepting bookings, however, the wait for the EcoSport can vary hugely depending on which variant you choose. Of the TDCi range, the entry level Ambient version has a waiting period of 2 months. The Trend variant that sits one notch above, packs in useful extras like ABS, steering wheel mounted audio controls and hardy faux leather seats but you will have to wait 3 months for this variant. The waiting period for the top end Titanium and Titanium Option variants have a waiting period of 9 months!

The news of the EcoSport TDCi recall hadn't dampened the mood as was evident by the number of people at the showroom. A newspaper clipping of the recall displayed right at the reception hoped to dispel most misgivings. Attending sales representatives provided further information about the recall and its rectification with potential customers to allay doubts further.

If you are thinking about buying petrol EcoSport, regardless of the engine or trim the wait stretches to 9 months. Buyers are being told that the stated time frame is the maximum possible and most likely the cars will be delivered within the stated timeframe. However, the lower cost of purchase of the 1.5 petrol motor has given the EcoSport mass appeal and the tech laden EcoBoost motor is the pick of the enthusiasts, so it really is a shame that many buyers will have to endure another long wait before they can get their hands on an EcoSport.
