I would think it wont. It would hurt the fortunes of the Fiesta TDCi. But IF they do that, it would be a major trump card for sure.

Aren't the planning to put the 1.6 TDCi into the Fiesta? So, why not put the 1.4 TDCi in the Ikon (if it goes in there!).

That would be a good choice, IMO!

Well recently i heard that ikon might be phased out as new one is expected soon and 1.4 TDCi seems far off issue in an old horse now

More than cost, its the time to get the spare from factory is the biggest worry.

For small part, ford service center will put the order with ford and it will take 2-3 weeks for the part to come.

Original Spare parts are not available in open market very easily.

Thats where I like my Indica, where Tata has solid parts inventory and they are easily available in open market as well
