A Sime Darby Auto Connexion sales advisor has listed a Ford EcoSport Titanium 1.5 on our car classifieds website oto.my for RM96,888. This comes after we noticed the opening of registration of interest for the EcoSport on the Ford Malaysia website.
When the EcoSport was first previewed in Malaysia at KLIMS13, an indicative price of between RM98k to RM108k was given. If this RM96,888 pricetag is accurate, the Fiesta-based SUV will be coming in at slightly below the lower end point of the indicative pricing.
The oto.my ad does list some of the equipment that the EcoSport will be coming with – points that stand out include keyless entry, a sunroof and seven airbags.
The Ford EcoSport will come in with a 1.5 litre Ti-VCT four-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed dual clutch transmission – the same mechanical bits found in the Fiesta 1.5. The engine does 110 PS at 6,300 rpm and 142 Nm at 4,400 rpm in the EcoSport. There is also a variant with the 1.0 litre EcoBoost three-cylinder turbo, but that will only be coming later.
The EcoSport has one competitor in Malaysia so far – the Peugeot 2008, which is priced at RM120k. Looks like the EcoSport’s RM97k pricing undercuts the 2008 by quite a bit then.
