O no not another limited edition from Ford. We have seen so many of the ikon's/endeavour and now they have started with the Fiesta as well.

they have so many anniversaries and so many limited editions, looks like every month they celebrate someone's birthday at the plant and launch a limited edition in his/her name.

but the features added are not entirely useless like the parking sensors.

I remember when they were celebrating the First Anniversary of the Fiesta, they gave all customers tickets to the new Bond movie at PVR Cinemas. Why dont they do something like that? <Evil Grin>

Looks good. The sun roof is optional. DOes that mean that even in this limited edition it wouldnt be part of the standard fitment?

Yup, that way they'd get to milk you extra for it.

Default sunroof looks nice

the sunroof is tempting but the graphics arent looking very nice. May be better off without those. The edition costs 68K more than zxi and sxi.
Is it worth it?
The sunroof is optional and costs 25K. So we can opt out of it but then its just the sunroof that makes the car look cool. without it it just looks like a basic fiesta with some cheap graphics.

Thumbs down

Its just a waste of money not only when you buy the car but also when you sell it. I have a limited edition edition elantra with all the works including the sunroof which makes the car look real suave. But now when i want to sell my car I am being offered a very low price because of the sunroof.

So guys dont go by all the extra stuff given by ford. You will just end up doing this .

True, you need to be close to or beyond 200 kmph for the spolier aerodynamics to become effective. Those speeds are not achievable on most of our roads, and especially not with majority of engines offered in India.

The alloys seems to have a different offset from the sxi spec one. The lead picture suggests wheels flush with the wheelarches, and the car looks much better, unfortunately theres no gallery of this LE model. Apart from the graphics, I guess because of these alloys (by its different offset) the car looks more substantial. But I guess they could have chosen a different alloy design, this ones all too common and quite old (see my 1100d gallery , this design is atleast 4 years old now)
