    With the cramped rear seats, many are saying that this is going to be a big premium hatchback rather than a mini-SUV. :)

    Seriously, there is something wrong with Ford or they are having challenges with this vehicle in Indian conditions. This vehicle is being talked for so long and Ford is still delaying to launch it. Let us wait and see if they launch this product in June this year.

  3. It may be targeting duster and monthly sales of 2-3K units and again ford has to make profits on it.Is this sub 4 mtr one? just to avail the excise duty waiver?

    I am trying to find the spec but, couldn't find it. Ford has to reveal this. But, it looks like the Brazil version has a length of 4250mm.

    FORD is better than most of the rivals in india. Take an example of Duster..the worst interiors i ever seen in 13 lac segment .
    IMO ford offers decent interiors and yes the seats are looking damn cheap.

    I can for sure say that, things will get really competitive with Ford and Duster competing in this segment.

    Ertiga started this segment while Duster got the first mover advantage with proper SUV stance and design. ppl just received both with both hands out. Now ford with sub 4mt spec will rock the market for sure.. be it cramped interiors, cheap plastic, this will sell.. Hope Fiat will bring on the mini SUV before they loose the plot.

    Nope they wont. They are busy with high end luxury SUVs and they are not bothered with the volume player like Panda.
