    I am thinking, would the avventura be compared at all with ecosport. BTW, how is Ecoport sales wise now after the initial hype.

    Ecosport still has a waiting period of over 6 months, the cars being delivered now were the ones that were booked 9 months back.
    A few might cancel ecopsort booking and go for the new fiesta, but not many due to the sparce space at the rear.
    Still,the new fiesta should be a very good buy,it is now almost the cheapest and the most feature rich c segment sedan, I think Ford's strategy is to recover the money later during service,read that there are no free services after 10 k kms.
    I like the face of the car.

    A bigger grill has technical benefits and should do justice to the radiator and intercooler and fan etc. providing more air intake and allowing better heat dissipation. It could affect the drag coef. a tiny bit, but by and large it looks very aerodynamic.

    Overall the lost lusture of fiesta 1st gen was a bit sad to see as they brought the new ones. It looked really nice and premium then.

    The 6 speaker music system with USB aux and their own Sync (blue and me type system) should be a new quality benchmark for the segment. So Yes, it is indeed feature rich in that sense too.

    Has the pricing for the facelifted Fiesta been released? Would it have the same number of engine options availaibility as with Ecosport?? The new Fiesta with 1.0 ltr ecoboost engine would be the real game changer for Ford in the sedan segment.

    Those who are contemplating between Honda City, Nissan Sunny and Renault Scala can seriously consider this car. This definitely is very good than the over hyped Honda City. :)

    Agree with the statement to an extent, but Renault Scala is a better choice than this any day. Ofcourse, the price bracket differs. In which case if one wishes to save some dough Linea is even better. :)

    Scala, yes may better. But, the looks I still think Fiesta is miles ahead. What I mentioned is people can now consider Fiesta too instead of taking a blind decision in favor of Honda. :)

    Yes exactly, honda or sunny both as you mentioned. And looks wise and feature list wise Fiesta sure looks a better bargain. Also it is quite appreciable that Ford should launch this in Diesel only option. Lesser burden for making choice. Even if diesel will equal petrol someday or negate price benefits, many people might be inclined to modern diesels due to FE benefits.
