Well came across this piece of info from the web.
So, basically i think its a Ford Ikon with a CRDi engine. Their version is called TDCi(Turbo Diesel Common-rail Injection Technology).

The Ford Duratorq series of diesel engines is a world class engine.
Its not common rail but DI turbo intercooled and the reason for its
greatness is that its designed by Peugeot.

Yup dude. Check out with owners of the Mondeo Durotorq - quite a few of them have issues.
