Upward of 10 percent of Ford India sales are attributed to women. The trend will grow owing to changes in upbringing, and improved education levels and career opportunities. Ford EcoSport is capable of higher ground clearance, and offers ease of driving, and is protected on the airbags front. It rises as a favourite Ford vehicle among women.
