Congrats buddy , happy for you. Knew you had your eyes on the Fiesta and would bring it home soon but did not know you were in such a hurry.
Which color did you opt for, waiting for a detailed ownership thread from your side. Enjoy the drive.

Hearty congrats Deepak! Been noticing your earnest interest in the new Fiesta for some time in the thread. I am not surprised!

Now treat us to a nice thread with plenty of snaps and a report.

Oh wow! I didn't know the tires for the new Fiesta were imported. That's definitely nice. And something to brag about.

Congrats deetjohn and wish you a great time driving it. Obviously Titanium variant, the guess on color is silver,

Ford used to give one plain and one remote key earlier. Seems something has changed in 2015.

Cheers

Thank You everyone! Let's hope the club grows in 2015 and more people get to experience the Fiesta.

Oh! I really took my time. I got a chance to take a reasonably good TD soon after the launch of 2014 car and I was smitten. So, not a rushed decision at all.

Guess the ownership report will have to wait a bit. Lets put some miles together.

Yeah, it completely baffles your mind. Here is a better pic.

The car is the same as in 2014 facelift. Even it had 2 keys.


I took the pic below when I had gone to dealer' yard for PDI. Thanks to a bunch of good souls at Ford and Kairali, our Fiesta didn't spend more than a few hours at the yard. Reason why the car is looking so clean in pic. And MGF group got a great yard in Kochi. No dust and a great space covered in green.

Sorry, missed out on the fact that being Titanium trim, it is keyless. Thanks anyway

Read Motorbeam's long term review of the updated Fiesta and felt proud upon reading the praises being showered on this car. It truly is in a class of its own when it comes to driving dynamics and can easily challenge cars a segment above.

More than a review, it reads a piece of admiration. The writer has driven the car for six months for evaluation to finalize his views.

Motorbeam, same time, conducted few months back a shootout among eight C2 segment cars. Fiesta there was ranked second behind City in overall capability. While refraining to be judgmental about that entire analysis, it atleast appears non-intutive to me to slot the two so close to each other with everything else following them. I really look forward to views of the knowledgeable members about according rankings to cars in this way.
