that is an ideal way to put ikon 1.6 vs accent ...

1.3 is peppy too and the fun-to-drive factor is there ... but it won't outperform the accent ...
so depends what you're looking for buddy

I said exciting performance, which is what even 1.3 delivers. I didn't say they are actually fast, but they are exciting.

Thanks guys for the inputs!
Ford has stopped making Ikon 1.6 since they don't want to compete against their own Fiesta! They'll be selling only Flair 1.3. My friend & me test drove a Flair 1.3 today, ride quality was quite good (but I felt my Palio was better!), it was quite sturdy & bit pleasure to drive. Though, I didn't like the smaller Steering wheel!. We will be taking test drive of Accent tommorow. I guess it will be a close finish :-)
