Great if it would come to india like that. I somehow feel the gear lever spoils the overall feel. Somehow it does not gel with the interiors. Especially in the fourth picture.

Great Scoop!! Thanks.

Well the interiors are very similar to the Global Fiesta that I had seen when I was in China, I was wishing Ford should bring them in India, good to know they are coming.

Here are some pics of the interior that I saw for Fiesta S in China, I guess the coloring the dash in Blue and Coral is an addition. Great work you guys...

But of course its with Auto gears

Any info on availablity of auto tranny too Mustang?
Not at launch thats for sure, but there was a video reel shown to us saying that the only auto transmission compatible with this car is the ford powershift dual clutch (dry clutch) transmission.

I dont know my clutches very well but i think that dual clutches make for really good gearboxes like in the superb. right?

So if ford decides to launch it then it will be a really nice gearbox i believe, but i have never driven a dual clutch ford before so cant really say.

Oh man , this is going to be good and I feel this new fiesta is going a hit if priced correct and it has high chances that it might take the lead from ANHC.

Thanks for the great scoop.Any idea whether it will price above ? lakh ?

So what happens to the current Fiesta? Ford discontinues it? or repositions it one segment lower?

I have a feeling that it will take the place of the Ikon as you know the Figo & current fiesta are from the same platform so it makes sense like swift/dzire & indica/indigo etc.

Beautiful interiors! Bring them on Ford. Knowing Ford's driver oriented driving characteristics, that could be a good buy.

What engine options are planned?

Great Scoop Mustang; So the Sedan would be launched in Q1 2011; any launch dates for the hatch?

+1 to that; I guess this also explains Fiesta's appearance on the last page of Delhi Times every second day.

Would surely be discontinued I believe; the following seems like an obvious positioning:

Ford Figo < Fiesta Hatch < Fiesta Sedan [Current Fiesta and Ikon discontinued]

BTW, I have fallen for the PLUM interiors (first one)

@ Mustang, Whats the expected price range for Fiesta Hatch?
Looks like it will replace Fusion, is it so?

I would love to see it like this.
Ford Figo < Figo Sedan < Fiesta Hatch < Fiesta Sedan [Current Fiesta and Ikon discontinued]

I cant tell you for sure but i heard some talk about the hatch in Q3 2011,

Fusion was really overpriced & so it was discontinued, so i guess it will not be a fusion replacement but a new premium hatchback.

Ikon might do well in the Taxi market and they can have it focused on that for sometime.

Figo and Fiesta can be like Swift and Dzire. The new Fiesta hatch will take on I20, Punto etc,. and new Fiesta will be in AHNC territory.

I cant post any other pics for a while, i just got about a minute in each car to examine them so that i can report on it & take a pic (secretly).

2 of these cars were hatches, 2 were sedans.

moreover the sedan & hatch will have identical interiors for identical variants.

Focus is not stationed here (as per my knowledge) but we have a new mondeo here & i just saw it twice, Its being stored in a very restricted area.
