It is an "A" category car which the dumb FORD company has discontinued. If it wishes to gain ground in India it needs to re-introduce IKON ... read more

Best Features: What not. Entire concept of FORD IKON is a smasher. Since the day I got it, I am in LOVE with this car.

Pros: Comfort, Handling, Sturdy, Good built quality, Fuel Economy, Value for Money, Pickup-Virtually everything

Cons: Ford's inability to continue this car with a contemporary face lift. Ford Aspire is merely a dumb replacement, Reintroduce Ford Ikon, with a face lift and a new name. It is still a Winner.
