Default Re: Rumour: Ford developing premium hatch for India & emerging markets

And if you look at their history in India, apart from Ecosport and Endeavor, all their successes have been world-class products:
The Ford Ikon (4th Gen Fiesta/ MK 5) was a success and a now a legend.
The Figo and Fiesta (5th Gen Fiesta/ MK 6) were again huge successes.

The only glitch in the story has been the 6th Gen Fiesta/ MK 7-7.5 - Not so much a success, but this was because there were other factors. (It was not powered right nor positioned correct and they never launched the hatchback model. This was the time before the Elite i20 and Baleno had taken off. So Ford missed that bus as well.)
