Any idea about the price range or engine options? Will there be a powerful diesel engine in the offering too?

Price will be in the region of Cruze, Corolla, Laura and Civic.

No news on the engine front. I will be getting more information in July. Till then we can just speculate.

Thumbs up Re: Ford India's future line up

^^ Thats fabulous news you got there. Is it the 2012 model we are talking about? I'm a big fan of the focus hatch, though I don't think we are so lucky enough :(

Ofcourse we are not this lucky, I am talking about the 2012 Focus Sedan that was launched recently in the US.

The Focus doesn't seem to be very large either on the outside or on the inside :( Hope it has other weapons in its arms to take on the competition. I am sure Handling would be one of the main plus points, the Focus being a Ford!

2012 focus in India in 2012? Seriously?! Awesome! That would be an idle upgrade for current fiesta owners like me

Mustang,
Does the focus sedan/hatch come with a diesel engine anywhere in the world? In India diesel would be the choice of most, so I am guessing it will come with one, but did not know if it had one.

Yes we can fit a 1.6/2.0 TDCi in the focus.

An interesting link about the Ford Focus posted in the Focus thread.
Is the Focus coming next year?

The link says the focus has a 1.6 Tdci diesel with 113 bhp and 29.4 kgm of torque. Is that the Fiesta's diesel engine in a different state of tune?

Yes it is. But i guess the 2.0 TDCi will be more appropriate.

Mustang, this I was kind of suspecting/speculating. That Ford will plan a Altis/Cruze/Civc like sedan. In fact that is what I was "fearing"! The reason I say fearing is because, that in all probability would be priority number 1 for Ford in that category.

So what happens to compact cross-overs! I am all for them. I am doubting, that these class of vehicles may get pushed to later part of 2012, if they do get released that year.

Any comments?

I think that you will be seeing only the focus sedan in 2012.

There goes my idea of buying a compact cross-over! Thanks for that update Mustang. I will plan accordingly.
