Ford Fiesta – A Powerful and Feature Rich Car
Ford Motors, the famous American carmaker, had a rather meek start to its business in India. Initially, the Ford cars failed to command the interest of Indian customers and Ford was going through a namesake presence in the Indian car market for some time. The confidence on the foreign cars and carmakers were not particularly high at that time and most of the Indians preferred to buy the tried and tested Indian car, Maruti, than an unknown car from a foreign maker. However, as the market opened up later, and newer and better cars with state of the art features began to hit the market, the scenario changed in favour of makers like Ford. People started thinking beyond Maruti and hence, brands like Ford got better acceptability.
Of the models that helped Ford to ascertain itself in India, the Ford Fiesta deserves a special mention. The Fiesta has been a top-selling model all over the world for a long. Unlike the other Ford models in India, Ford Fiesta was doing good business here, even when not all other models did. The main reason for the popularity of Fiesta is its great performance and handling. It is a brilliant car, which performs well on the highways, while being easy to maneuver on the city roads.
Ford Fiesta is available for an ex-showroom price ranging from INR 769000/- to 929500/-. It is a stylish car with comfortable seating and spacious interiors. The Fiesta offers a fresh feel and look, which makes it appealing to the buyers. The current version of Fiesta is the sixth generation of the car. This is not only richer with features, but also more powerful than the earlier editions.
Even though the same 1498 cc, four-cylinder, eight valve In-line SOHC TDCi engine, with a maximum power of 90 bhp and a peak torque of 204 Nm, is used in the Fiesta as the earlier models, it has been better tuned for maximum fuel economy. The engine comes mated with a five-speed manual gearbox. The new Fiesta offers an outstanding mileage of 25 kmpl on highways and 20 kmpl on city roads.
The interiors of Fiesta have been done in dual-tone, with black and beige being the prominent colors. While the general quality of materials used has improved, no drastic changes have been made on the inside. Nevertheless, the new colour scheme has significantly enhanced the look and feel on the inside of the car.
On the inside, although front row is spacious and comfortable, the rear feels a bit cramped. The boot space is also lower for a car of this size. However, Ford has not compromised on safety and features like ABS, EBD and Drive-side Airbag are offered as standard. If you are looking for SUV then Ford EcoSport is the best mid Size SUV in the market.
