I was hurriedly crossing the railway track before the gates went down and it was not the ideal place to take a pic as there was lot of traffic! :-(

guys, dont you think its a lot bigger than swift or any other car in the B+ segment. i know it would be less than 4 meters but still it looks to be much bigger than the competition.

Read that as I10, probably they are waiting for their I10. You see, a lot of waiting period is there for the car

Here are some spy shots of the new Fiesta hatch based on the Verve concept. Lets hope Ford decides to launch this instead of the previous generation model.

Did they give you hard time to snap pics?(looks like they did not fight you at all or were they sitting ducks?
Even when they were testing out the Fusion, the route was through nungumbakkam, via teynampet, thru nandanam and turn into T-Nagar. Why this route at 830 am, and 3pm.. no idea!

@khanak : Now, we're talking. The Verve looks quite contemporary, as against the car in the spy pics which i had posted. However, i feel that would hike the prices by a large margin, and this could then end up being in the Fabia category.

Price the Fusion at par with the Fabia? The Fusion does not come with half the goodies that the Fabia comes with. Not to forget the dreaded FORD brand name. Why do they waste their money revamping the Fusion. With plans like this, it's never gonna sell.

And named the fiesta ? i doubt that. this is the Ford Fiesta, for India or overseas, that is the question.

If the association of the brand name is to the maintenance & expenses then one can say that Skoda would be as expensive to maintain as well.

Isn't the Verve- based fiesta larger than the existing ones?

there you go! that was the car I have been eagerly waiting for. lets see ford is gonna launch it with duratech or duratorq. A diesel shud be practical approach in india. but petrol is really a nice machine. It is one of the bestsellers of ford in UK along with the focus. looks and behaves like a small fusion.all da best ford.
