Ford Fiesta Classic
Originally launched in November 2005, the Fiesta turned out to be a decent performer from Ford. The car was instantly a hit due its comfort and big car factor and the economical diesel unit further impressed its customers. However, over the years, the sales started dropping due to better rivals and hence in April 2011, a rebadged Fiesta with the Classic tag was introduced with a reduced sticker price. Infact, the Ford Fiesta Classic also makes way for the all-new Fiesta that is scheduled to be launched by Aug / Sep 2011.
The Ford Fiesta Classic is basically the same good old Fiesta though with minor changes like new interiors with Ebony and Jasper Blue instrument panel, centre and floor console finished in Graphic Metallic, new seats, trims and a new badge. The pricing too has been reduced drastically and infact, the base petrol model is even cheaper than the original base petrol model that was launched in November 2005! The interiors of the Fiesta Classic continue to be a strong point with good quality and high comfort factor. Driving the Fiesta Classic is a joy and the 1.6-litre petrol motor is one of the best engines in the Rs 5-6 lakh category. The 1.4-litre diesel engine on the other hand is known for its good low end torque and impressive fuel economy.
The Ford Fiesta Classic is sold in six versions –three each of petrol and diesel, namely the LXI, CLXI and SXI. The pricing of the new Fiesta Classic petrol starts at Rs 5.49 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) and Fiesta Classic diesel starts at Rs 6.48 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) needless to say, makes for one great buy!
Expert Speak: At this price, the Fiesta Classic offers a lot! Definitely a good buy with exciting performance from the petrol engine and impressive economy from the diesel engine.Less
