We thought crossovers are trending only in the domestic sector, but it seems even the government has fallen prey to the attractive and versatile nature of urban SUVs. Police department usually chooses Tata Sumo and Mahindra Bolero due to their frugal nature and bossy pose, now even they have managed to shift to new trend opting for compact, lightweight and nimble forms of mobility.Thanks to Andhra Pradesh government, Vijayawada police department will get some new Ford EcoSport patrol vehicles along with Toyota Innova and Tata Sumo, to survey the highway in style and nab fleeing dirtbags fast.
Vijayawada highway police get Trend diesel variant which is equipped with features like Antilock Braking System (ABS), adjustable steering wheel, power windows, manual air-conditioning, body-coloured bumpers and 15-inch steel wheels.
We hope, in time, other states also provide their police forces with such nimble and more practicable solutions, so that criminals do not outperform police on road.
