Fiesta 1.6 S is clearly in front on the VFM front when compared to Cedia.

My recent test drive with Fiesta S was good but my heart is still with the Cedia.
The source is a moderately relaiable one, but I wouldnt bet my money on it. He had told me about the changes in Spirit which has turned out to be true. And i'm very much in the same boat, liked the Feista S but heart still with the Cedia!

The new ford looks nice, but i heard from one of the service guys who is a good friend of mine , who was with Lathangi before Lathangi shifted to Ford, that the number of cars turning up with problems have quadrapled ever since they shifted to Ford! Doesnt speak much good of Ford cars. On personal experience, Cedia is a very good car but for mileage! And trust me, you will get addicted to driving it that you wont care much for milage!
PS:Too bad you missed out on the 7 lakh car!!!!
Rgards,

Also bear in mind that this could be partially because Ford sells that many more cars in India than HM does.

That fact seems to have been conveniently overlooked when that statement was made. No wonder we have people who blame Lathangi's service post shifting to Ford. The mindset hasnt changed, it seems.

Apologies for not updating the thread I had opened - I have already gone for the Cedia Sports recently. Booked one and then, the morons at Southern ditched me with a price protection thing they had promised. (In the process, I also ended up losing the processing fees I had paid SBI, since my loan was already approved).

At the same time, I was offered a one year old Cedia and I went for it, in the process saving a few lakhs, and I'm glad for it!

Thanks, everyone!

Infact ford sells more than 10 time the number of cars that HM/mitsu does.

Congrats on the new car Carzy.
Regarding Mileage, this car wouldnt give any competition for what a fiesta would give. But it isnt that bad as well, I believe I got around 14-ish (highways) prior to first service with a driving style that would not speak itself as economy.
You might have to change the lights, especially if you are into highway driving.
Cheers again!.

Thanks!

Details - Oct 2007 Model - Black - 18000 odd on the odo - with complete service history and stuff. Price was 7 lakhs.

(I guess a little on the higher side? But then, I was really tired of running around and black was the color I wanted, so just made peace and went ahead.)

Thanks! Well, I was told by the previous owner that he used get around 9-10 Kmpl in the City. I think its a par thing in the jam packed Bangalore traffic.

Default Ford Fiesta 1.6 Vs Cedia

These are the 2 cars for enthisiasts within the price band of 10L (+/- 1.5L maybe).
I cant find a comparison between these two. Can people add their opinion?

You can make a call based on services. I would vote for ford services to be better. Also I think Fiesta is much lighter than Cedia. Hence may be tad more efficient in terms of power/weight ratio.
