Ah thats nice, Now I would like to find out if there is a carbon fibre look centre console available to go with the black theme of the interiors

After Hyundai launched the new Verna yesterday along with its prices, Ford is in a fix. Ford MUST set Fiesta's prices atleast 10-20K lower than Verna's prices. If it crosses the Verna range, then it could be a problem for Ford. As we can see, Hyundai has placed Verna in between ANHC and Vento, upto some extent.

On the other side, all this pricing game hits ANHC really badly. People have already started comparing prices of ANHC with Vento, Verna and others and ANHC is losing the game, slowly and steadily.

Mustang: Any updates on the new Fiesta?

10-20 k would hardly affect the buying decision, even in the small hatch segment, much less here

I was just playing around with a configurator on a site called autobytel.
This came up.
17 odd grand quote for a top spec.

Try for other models which are available at India too, they would never really translate into the same cost. Even approximately

Thats good news bro, but will it be a significant margin?

16 k for the SX4 is the only one i could find.

no city, just something whose front end looks like a city, called the "insight".
no verna.

Checked the cruze though.
Top end came to about 9lac INR, so we're off by about 6 lacs.

so, unclear on anything at all!
back where we started.

Dear Mustang, does the Fiesta come with rear disc brake, ABS with EBD. I am sure that twin Air Bags will be offered in top end models. Any idea of Ford offering Six Air Bags like in the New Verna?

Fiesta will come with front disc and rear drum brakes. It will have ABS + EBD and not just only in the top model.

There might not be a 6 airbag version. But twin airbags will be standard.

Yes, the price difference will be significant.

Thanks for chipping in as usual. Yes, I hoped that Ford will undercut the competition for sure with the Figo experience at the back of their mind.

But its very agonizing to wait now. Ford should atleast reveal price and variants. They can launch the car in June-July, but atleast create some interest in the car by revealing the specs and prices. And may be even start taking bookings from interested people. I Don't know whats happening behind the closed doors of Ford India.

Hyundai too started bookings for the Verna without disclosing any info regarding the pricing or variant. Its just that the Verna got launched earlier. Potential customers who have been waiting for the Verna would definitely wait for the launch of the Fiesta as well.

Any idea as to how many variants are going to be there in each spec [Petrol & Diesel] ? Also since Airbags are standard across all variants, could we expect ABS also standard?

Just curious, not sure you will be able to answer this. Do the manufactures decide a price for the car when they decide a new product or once the entire product is made, do they decide on a price with good / reasonable margin ?

At least revealing the prices might have held some one from booking the Verna. Am sure Verna can "influence" a lot a buyers, so Ford should think of something which can steal some of Verna's lime light !!

Mustang, could you please give us an approximate time period for the launch of the Fiesta? Like this month, next month, something. So that people looking to buy a new car know how long to wait.

Fiesta will not be launched before August, because they have some problem in the production. This new came out I guess a 15 to 20 ago. I dont know if they still have the issue or not.
