Review of Ford Classic

Overview

 This was a big success for Ford when it was launched, now it still does very good numbers but Ford recently introduced a new vriant titled Classic. Ford Classic continues the legacy of the old Fiesta with a new name. It is an excellent combination of style and aggression owing to its sporty design. When it comes to looks, it has muscular styling, stylish grille with the Ford logo, clear lens headlamps and fog lamps integrated into the body colored bumpers with large air dam and overall an aggressive front end design. 15 inch alloy wheels and flared wheel arches add to the sporty looks of the Ford Classic. It has body colored OVRMs now while looks great and in-line with the rest of the car’s design. The build quality is excellent and so is the fit, finish and paint quality.

Inside, the Ford Classic comes in a new beige interior trim which looks great and feels better than its older versions. The car feels spacious and there is plenty of leg and head room for passengers. The seats are comfortable and offer excellent back and thigh support. The driver seat is height and tilt adjustable. Ford Classic has other features which enhance driving experience such as Automatic Climate Control air conditioning, 6 CH changer audio system with good speakers, remote boot release, power windows, leather upholstery in certain variants. It has small storage areas inside while the boot has a total luggage carrying capacity of 430 liters. Ford Classic is known for its peppy and powerful petrol engine although it is available in two engine variants. The petrol engine variant is available in a 1.6 liter Duratec engine which produces 100 BHP.  

The diesel engine variant is a 1.4 liter Duratorq engine which produces 68 BHP at 4000 RPM and plenty of torque. It has excellent bottom end power and is easy to drive in the city and on the highways. Both the diesel and petrol Classic are economical. But the diesel Ford Classic has a great efficiency of 20 kmpl, the petrol too manages 13 kmpl which is a respectable figure nonetheless. It offers a comfortable drive and has very good ride quality. It absorbs all the bad bumps and undulations of the road as it has a very well setup suspension. It offers a composed and stable ride on the highways. Body roll is nearly negligible as this car feels at home around corners. The steering unit offers very good feedback and is well weighted at low and high speeds and comfortable to use at all times. Ford Classic also comes with ABS + EBD and good brakes to help you slow it down from higher speed easily. Prices start at Rs 5.5 lakh to 7.8 lakhs ex-showroom and it represents good value. For a detailed analysis read below.
