The website feature list looks impressive. Pretty kicked about this launch. Though Im not sure whats the point of a cruise control in India's traffic-laden scenario.

Also, the Safety features mention only 2 airbags. I guess 6 airbags wont be offered, nor ESP, which is what we'd been hoping for :(

Just saw through the website!!
Fantastic looks to be a understatement. I have high hopes from this launch.
Hope they also integrate the navigation ability. They have the screen for it atleast.

P.s: soliciting donation for the car
EDIT: can't see the live launch on FB, as it's blocked. updates from the members would be appreciated.

Looks like the voice activated controls is similar to Fiat's "blue and me", though it seems more advanced than it. Ford SYNC?

Nice car. The voice is a little soporific though! The interiors look nicely put together. Just to figure out what the car is going to be priced at!

Well done Ford India. Finally a contemporary car!

Overall a high quality fit and finish as the best impression. Any idea on the pricing part ?

Just saw the launch on motoroids as FB is blocked at office. The voice controls seem to be real cool, even the ac temp, fan, etc can be adjusted using voice commands.

The car looks good overall. Pricing will be the key.

Does it have a push button start feature & Telescopic steering adjust?

I like the shape of the car & interiors.

Price will the deciding factor.

I saw the complete live stream on facebook. There won't be navigation integrated into the car as the screen is a non-colored one.

It is the ford SYNC but without the navigation functions. Otherwise you can control the AC, your stereo, your IPOD, Your USB and your Phone through it.

The push button start is not standard as of now but true picture will be available when the car variants are announced. Yes it does have steering adjust.
