no dude...not the optra...
actually the thing is that 8 years back...i had deposited some amount in the name of ford..to buy the ford escort...people told us that the car is going to be a flop and stuff like that..because of which we told the company that we dont wnat the car....they were like u let us keep the money...well give u interest every year..and ull get the money back only when u buy a ford car...so right now if i book a fiesta...i wont have to make any downpayment...that is why jus wanted to know which 1 is better ...honda city zx gxi or ford fiesta tdci...
is it going to give better fe than the accent crdi???

The Fiesta is not really out in the market till now ... there is no confirmed news about the specs either ....

Dont mind , but dont you think its a bit too early to ask for an opinion when neither of the cars have been test driven by anyone till now ?

phew ! i thought it was already out and i thought i was teh last oen 2 hear abt it. since teh fiesta looks bigger than teh ikon, and ikon cannot be killed now,it should be priced a bit higher than ikon. lets wait and c.

Its a bit early to say because things will change a bit when Ford actually releases this model.

Fiesta should be a great car and for sure Ford will have designed it keeping in mind back seat comfort. The City although spacious dosent ride very well.

The duratorq 4cyl is a great engine and should be much smoother than the Accent Crdi's 3 pot.

You deposited money on ford when you were a 9 year old... I am confused, what does that mean?

But in a lot of cases, we seem to be experts in Mercs and BMW's which not many of us have driven

Fiesta Diesel will be a 1.4L engine with good FE. This is the info I got from Dealers last week.
And Ikon will be a closed matter. Same as Toyota did for Qualis.
Fiesta will be priced 70K morethan Ikon.
Fiesta will be releasing next month.
