A chevrolet aveo 1.4, Fiat linea 1.4, Hyundai Accent 1.5, Mahindra logan 1.4, Dzire 1.3 and Indigo 1.4 are all indications of the market that exists for such a car.

Ikon 1.3( 1.2 engine compatible?) can infact be an excellent alternative for the small car which Ford Lacks in their kitty right now.

There's no doubt that Fiesta is a dated car in comparison to Linea, ANHC and SX4. An All new fiesta Sedan/Hatch duo just like the Linea/punto can be a great addition to Ford's India lineup.

Also while I mentioned the stereo in Linea, it's more about the cost addition than the quality. Not heard personally but company ICE installs are never that great.

owner will have have some prejudice for the brand they own and that is the reason for them buying the same.
try driving fiesta diesel in 3rd gear it will show you your car's capability.
Just try and then get back to me on this.
Sorry for OT
but been there done that many times.
the power delivery from 1.4L TDCI is amazing,but still its not that fast as you are telling.
but as they as its not the ride,its the rider.

@ raamki,

fully agree. The ZXI is the one to go for. The new SXI doesnt feel worth the extra Rs. 70K premium (on road mumbai)
