Fiesta Classic Limited Edition will be a good buy
Agree to Krish here. An ABS alone would have hiked the price by at lesat 25-30k which is what we have been offered in this trimmed down version. Another 30K reduction would have taken away quite a few customers eyeing the Dzire /Manza

Anyone knows the onroad price for the Classic SXI in Kerala?

I got mine in Dec 10 for 8.82 lakhs on road, after 45k cash discount and few other benefits.

Want to see how much different the reduced price is now. Of course the Classic SXI is missing many goodies including leather seats and trim.

I have been following up with dealers here. No one has the prices for SXi yet (they are still waiting for information from Ford). Not sure why it is taking so long.
As I had mentioned SXi (the original one) was around 8.1 lac after discounts (OTR Pune).
If the classic SXi is around the same, then it is not worth it!

You know why the dealers have no info regarding this, this is because there seems to be a discrepancy b/w ford and the dealers regarding the SXi pricing, Just wait for the things to clarify and i think SXi price will reduce.

We would know this only once the cars start hitting the showrooms.
Gemi, I visited the Ford showroom yesterday (for Figo) only and fortunately the Classic was there so just gave it one look. I can confirm your gut feeling that, CLXi has ditto Figo look and feel dashboard as well as music system, thank god it doesn't come with that red Coral color of Figo's!

Chennai Ford dealer says they have 120 Fiesta NON CLASSIC SXIs with them. Perhaps they are trying to push the old SXIs first?

It could be the case, so if anybody wan't a non classic fiesta SXi, then they should rush now and get discounts also.

But to be a devils advocate to that statement, Classic or not there is not going to be any change in the resale value of the Sxi version.
By all probability one will get the same resale value. So not much difference between rushing now and later on.

But agree, one can expect huge bargaining tactics in this case. Pity those dealers who have unsold stocks. Not sure how Ford will do good for thier losses.

The SXi price seems to have not reduced. But neither have the features and specs. SXi remains the only model which offers beige interiors and leather seats & steering wrap.

Not only old SXi-s, I even seen the LIMITED edition Fiesta on display on my yesterday's showroom visit. So chances are that, one can get this limited edition at discounted prices.

Has anyone seen the car in Person? I am quite interested to see how the car would look in Colorado Red. Can someone click some pictures?

The classic SXi petrol is around 8.56 lacs on road in Pune. This is the same as the old price.
My assumption is the discounts on this one should still be applicable (just as the older SXi discounts). Hence OTR should be around 8.1 lacs in Pune.

The new Fiesta (NFS) might be priced higher than 9 lacs in Pune (my assumptions).

wow, that is quite expensive. perhaps it may be better to get hold of the old Fiesta. Looks are definitely subjective; for some reason I do not like the new interiors in the classic version.
It does seem more likely that the new Fiesta may end up being more expensive than the Vento?

Now since S model is discontinued, can SXi suspension be tuned liked S model at the Ford service centre ? Other things like 15" tyres, spoiler, sports pedals etc can be easily added.....

I was actually contemplating on selling my 3 year old Dzire VDI and going in for the Fiesta classic LXI Diesel, But I figured that even though the car is a good one, it is very bad on resale value and the fact that this car is a 6 year old model in India could be a major setback in about 2-3 years. Secondly even this is now christened as the 'classic', people will percieve the new fiesta as the all new car and hence the current classic model will lose its appeal very quickly. I know a friend of mine who has Fiesta TDCI which has done about 50k and is about 4 years old and the current price being asked in the market is less than 4 lakhs! so 50% loss in value in about 4 years! Compare that to the re-sale value of my dzire which is now being asked by brokers for about 5.5lakhs! I have done about 40k and my car is 3 years old and I guess this is a very decent value. So I dropped the plan of buying the fiesta classic and decided to stick on to my dzire for another 2-3 years.
