nice to see ya prompt reply karan.
i have no clue bout the previous fiesta.to be frank until i had my ohc i dint care for any other mid segment car and then i found myself wanting.i think the old zxi came with fog lamps.music system is invariably free on most of ford cars.
i got a call from another sales guy saying august offer is free mp3 player.anyway as i told u i'm waiting to ice ma ride so not gonna bother bout that offer.

Nice colour you got there. Have fun with the ride and do post a detailed review once you've got some miles on her.

Drive safe!!!

8 is really low dude. I thought Fiesta 1.6 gave around 10-12 kmpl?
maybe due to driving styles?

It depends on traffic conditions. In Metro's there is no way that you can get 10-12 from a 1.6 ltr petrol engine.(Sx4, Verna or Fiesta)


Thats the reason petrol cars dont make sense for engine sizes above 1 ltr, unless the running is very very low like 500 kms per month.

congratulations bro, nice interiors. fiesta is very good for the city indeed. nice colour too!

i am surprised they dont give audio system with zxi. put some snazzy alloys and if possible then a spoiler too later on if possible !! then it would be a fiesty fiestaaaa.

Incorrect! If you've read my ownership review, I've never got less than 10.8 in city driving---it hovers between 11 to 13, depending on AC, heavy-footedness and traffic. And traffic congestion in Hyd need not be talked about.

manjith, the probable reason for your low FE could be (as you said your mom uses it):-
  1. Car used for several short trips of less than 3 kms.
  2. Driver ripping the car.
  3. Not switching off car at junctions for prolonged intervals
  4. Not anticipating braking in advance
  5. Not changing to the higher gear---most ladies suffer from this habit.

i feel go for black colour alloys as it would look cool with your cars colour, also matt finish would look good too.
