    Spotted this beast on my way back from Trichy...Driver (seems like a professional guy) was taking rest inside. This car seems to be a good one as it gave me real tough time on road. After taking the pics I started my journey & after few seconds, I saw the car coming from behind. Looked like he wanna prove something. I accelerated & reached 160km/hr in no time. But to my surprise he overtook me easily when I dropped the speed slightly as I saw a small turn ahead.

    Seeing the car I felt like the muscular look Linea possessed till now has been transferred to this car & New Linea Facelift chose the Old Verna, Chevy Aveo looks :(

    :(
    Why don't they bring the Fiesta hatchback? Why did they introduce the new Fiesta as a sedan?
    They had the nicely performing old Fiesta. They could've simply facelifted/updated that model and introduced the new Fiesta in the hatchback form. That way they would've had a premium hatchback in their line-up.

    Front looks all aggression, ready to swallow competition :)
    But definitely looks a lot better than the the earlier avatar that didn't do that well in terms of numbers.

    Old Fiesta was looking so dated. Thats one reason why my parents chose Honda City over Fiesta in 2010. I think there was nothing wrong in introducing New Fiesta then, only that they priced it wrong.

    The original Fiesta sold its 3 year quota already in India. Most Ford cars sell like hot cakes for 3-4 years and then the owners come to face the reality of Ford cars and the model gets flopped. By this time, Ford brings another car to replace the flopping car.

    I have seen this trend with all Ford cars, right from the days of Ford Escort.

    To add to it, I had a very scary experience with Ford dealership and I escalated the matter to Ford India. Ford dealer in Chandigarh gave me a test drive of Ecosport in a car that didn't have documents and the police starting harassing me for challan. Ford India do not bother to even reply back.

    They have looted Indians really cleverly. They took 50,000 booking amount as refundable only within 48 hours of official launch if the customer does not find the prices in sync with what he was told during booking. Around 4 weeks after official launch, Ford India raised the prices by 50,000 straightaway and removed a few features from the second from top model. Those who asked to cancel booking after this event were told to go home without their Rs50,000/- booking as the same was non-refundable. My friend suffered due to this.

    All I wanted to convey was that Ford should've introduced the hatchback first and then, later, the sedan. They introduced a new sedan when the existing sedan was doing reasonably good. This allowed the likes of Hyundai and Maruti to get ahead in the premium hatchback market unopposed. Even now Ford doesn't have a player in that segment.

    Can't agree more!
    2 weeks back I paid Rs. 9.5k+ for the 20,000kms service of a Petrol Figo!! It wasn't even an all-fluid change service! Heck, I got my diesel Punto's all-fluids change service done for a lesser amount!!
