Good price IMO and it will sell in better numbers for sure. Does some one have feature list out for three variants?

Here's the brochure, explaining the features of all 3 variants.

Amazing pricing!!! And this is going to make quite a few cars uncomfortable including the EcoSport!

Big question! Will Ford be able to make enough of it?

I agree with that but since my car will be used 95% alone and the highway drives will always be alone (Delhi to Meerut from college to home) I don't find that a big problem. Can anyone clarify if the trend has Bluetooth connectivity for the phone like ecosports Trend has. I want Bluetooth telephony badly and spending 1.5 lakh for this and alloys seems a bit steep.

This is good stuff. This time around Ford has got the pricing ok.
The base model pricing looks inviting.
Top model though is priced nearly same as it's rivals.

I tried downloading the brochure but only pre-face lift version is showing.

Took a snapshot from the ford website on features comparison across variants.

Base variant definitely looks mouth watering and VFM. The icing on cake is ABS, EBD provided as standard.

Eagerly waiting for the T-bhp review.

Cheers,
Abhi

Wow great pricing. I wish they mate a DCT gear box to the diesel mill. If that's priced well, it's sure to blow the competition away.

I dont see anywhere in the specs the mention of ESP but the below link has a mention of 'Electronic Stability Control' which I guess is equivalent of ESP. Does the new Fiestia have the ESP or its wrongly featured on the website?

One correction! Diesel Linea is 1.3 but not 1.4.

Now I am expecting the bookings to increase, and then..... a price hike? The oldest trick in the game? I hope sanity prevails with the guys at Ford.

Can someone please confirm if they have improved the recline angle of the rear seat backrest? Any photographs of the rear seating? Even the Ford India website doesn't have any such picture.

Test drove this car 4 times in 2012, had the pricing been this good, I would have taken it.
Good to see they have retained Cruise control and some of other features. Now please do market this well!

Shocking Price Ford

Kudos to the team to get such a shocking price for the New Fiesta. I am sure the waiting period for the New Fiesta will climb quickly.

Not surprised. This could be another case (like the Ecosport) of giving priority to exports and release limited numbers to local market.
