Ford India had launched the much-awaited compact SUV, EcoSport at a very aggressive pricing of Rs. 5.59 lakh. Now, the depreciating value of rupee has forced the carmaker to increase the prices of this compact SUV by around Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 40,000, depending on the variant.
The company has also updated the new prices on its official website. While the base 1.5-litre petrol Ambiente model is now priced at Rs. 5.82 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), up by around Rs. 23,000 , the top of the line 1.5-litre diesel Titanium optional now costs Rs. 9.37 lakh, up by around Rs. 37,0000 from Rs. 9 lakh. The 1.0-litre EcoBoost Optional variant' price too hiked by Rs. 38,000, which is now priced at Rs. 8.66 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Similarly, other variants of the vehicle also costs about Rs. 30,000 to 40,000 more.
The high demand and long waiting period for EcoSport has already forced Ford's dealers to stop taking bookings for the vehicle.
