Review

Getting the right car should always depend on what you want and what you need. Oftentimes, people get lured to commercials especially when they do not know what they want in particular. If you are looking for a sleek car, then you may want to check Ford Fiesta, one of the best sedans in India. New Ford Fiesta is based on all-new platform and the interiors are also different with all-new design for central console, new steering wheel with audio controls on it and it also features automatic climate control system. Ford India has priced the new Fiesta more than the current generation Fiesta and they will sell both the models simultaneously. This is the best strategy to cash-in by selling two generations of cars like Hyundai did with Accent and Skoda did with Octavia.  

Ford India has kept its promise and has launched the automatic variant of New Fiesta Petrol at a price tag of Rs. 8.99 lakhs for the style variant and Rs. 9.70 lakhs for the Titanium variant. The automatic variant of Ford Fiesta is 6-speed dual-clutch auto gearbox (available in only petrol). Main features of Fiesta's dual clutch unit are: the car is much more responsive and shifts are quicker, it comes with a creep function, which lets you crawl in slow moving traffic without having to bother depressing the accelerator. Using the brake, one can creep forward or backwards using the creep function. It requires no maintenance for 240,000 kilometres, which is almost the lifetime of the car. The Fiesta Powershift automatic style variant is priced at Rs. 8.99 lakhs while the Titanium variant comes in at Rs. 9.70 lakhs. These prices are ex-showroom New Delhi. The tag-line for the Ford Fiesta Automatic: "Convenience of AT for economy of a manual".

Ford India launches New Ford Fiesta line-up to engage and elevate customers with its global quality, addictive driving dynamics and intuitive technology at an attractive price. Ford introduces an all-new variant – Ambiente to start the new line-up and builds on it with enriched content on the Style and Titanium+ trims. The simplified New Ford Fiesta line-up now comprises two petrol, two diesel and two automatic trims. At a starting price of Rs. 723,000 (ex-Showroom, New Delhi), All-New Fiesta Ambiente redefines value; the new Ford Fiesta line-up offers unmatched value to customers with its segment-leading features and class-leading fuel-efficiency.

Safety Features

The system automatically modulates the brake pressure while allowing the tire to spin. This increases the driver’s ability to turn the vehicle to another direction when braking.

It reduces engine power and applies select power-assisted brakes to inhibit the driver from losing control over the vehicle. Front-impact airbags have been put in place for both the driver and the passenger to protect the head during a frontal smash. Pretensioners that automatically tighten seat-belts have also been put in place so occupants are kept in an optimal seating position during a car crash.
