Default My New Sea Grey Ford Fiesta Duratec Sxi Petrol

I took delivery of my new Sea Grey Ford Fiesta Sxi Petrol on September 17th from Metro Ford, St Marks Road, Bangalore. There is a special price available now and I got a discount of Rs 64K. The Ex Showroom price was Rs 6.8 Lakhs. This is a company leased car and hence I am only bothered about the ex showrom price. This 64K discount reduced my monthly EMI by Rs1.5K. I am retaining my existing car (Maruti Alto). My wife will be using it.

Why I chose Ford Fiesta

I have always liked the Fiesta. This is the third Fiesta in the family. My Father and Grandfather have one each. I enjoy driving and wanted a fun to drive car. Hence Fiesta fits the bill. I did want to wait for the VW Vento but the price was slightly above the budget. I have driven the Fiat Linea, the Sx4 and the Aveo in this segment. At 6.8 Lakhs ex showroom, I think the Fiesta Sxi petrol is good value for money.

The Buying Experience

I had a hassle free buying experience. Metro Ford delivered the car on the promised date. It took one week after the purchase order was raised by the leasing company. The Sales person was nice and courteous.



I wanted to fit a spoiler but at Rs 8K, I thought it was too expensive and hence dropped the idea.

Smile Congratulations

Congratulations Pramod on your Fiesta and welcome to the Fiesta family. The sea grey colour looks absolutely brilliant on the Fiesta. Guess that whats fmaily genes mean, owning a Fiesta by each generation.

You are perfectly right in saying that the Fiesta is VFM in its segment, coupled by good handling, great performance and frankly I found it good looking too amongst its peers.

I think your thread would be shortlived since Mods are going to close this thread as you have posted your buying experience in the ownership section.

All the best, Happy mile crunching and drive safely.

Welcome to the club, Pramodpk! The car looks hot.
Why don't you touch upon the TD experience with other cars?

Congratulations Pramodpk on your newest acquisition !! Wish you all the happy mile crunching.

The sea grey color looks stunning. The more I see this color, the more I become a fan of it. It infact all the cars I have seen with this color or alike till date - Fiesta, Figo, Vista, Punto, all look so gorgeous.

Do ensure all your initial feelings about the car in details.

Thumbs up Congrats

Pramod, congrats man, I too got mine 1.5 months back and it's a really good car to drive. However calling SXi VFM IMO is bit overboard as I had to shell out 8.24 lakhs OTR price, I guess you only paid ex-showroom that why less pinch. I think there should be a Bangalore Fiesta fans club now . I got the sun film as a freebie was it the same and did you get anything else as freebies?

Pramod, Congratulations !!! Third one in the family that too for the third generation in order, thats something you would be the only person in the whole of team-bhp. It shows your love for the fiesta and the kind of addiction it could give to people regardless of age. Wishing you 10000000s of happy miles ahead !

More and more sea grey colour and 3rd car in your family (Ford would be much happier to see/hear this news).
And, not bad, you got 64k discount on the car - very good bargain, indeed.
Enjoy - Go Fida!!!
