If it’s a sedan you’re looking for at under Rs. 8 lakh, then the Ford Classic makes an excellent case for itself as a value offering…
When all things around us keep getting smarter and better, can cars be far behind? Surely not! The Indian sedan buyer has always loved the old Ford Fiesta for its offer of brilliant driving dynamics and superior ride quality along with its fuel efficient powertrain options. Now, with the Ford Classic Titanium things have become even better. This solid product is now loaded to the gills with goodies, some of which are not seen on other cars in the same price band.
The overall design language remains untouched though a new color option and alloy wheels certainly add richness to the way the Classic Titanium looks. Meanwhile body coloured ORVMs and a new black front grille adds to the vehicle’s looks and lends it a contemporary touch. Changes have also been done to the inside and it now gets all new beige interior trim, which lends a refreshed, light and airy feeling to the cabin. The new interior trim also gives it a luxurious feel.
In line with the Ford brand promise to ‘Go Further’ and provide customers with the latest in technology, the Ford Classic Titanium also gets a clutch of first in class features. It is the first car in its segment to get the benefit of a stereo system that allows Bluetooth connectivity, which not only makes things convenient for the driver but also safer as it allows him to keep his hands on the steering wheel while remaining connected on the go.
Speed sensing volume controls now ensure that you don’t have to keep adjusting the volume as the Classic Titanium’s speed changes. The addition of drive-away locks provide an added level of safety for your near and dear ones with the doors locking themselves automatically when the vehicle starts moving.
The Ford Classic is available in six exciting new colors- Paprika Red, Panther Black, Diamond White, Chill Metallic, Moon Dust Silver and Sea Grey, the new variant comes covered with Ford Classic’s comprehensive 2-year / 100,000 km warranty, offering a low cost of ownership and peace of mind to its customers.
So at the end of the day, what you have is a sedan that looks good, drives even better and accommodates five adult quite comfortably. Additionally, you are pampered with a lot of techy goodies that others in the segment do not offer at this point in time. So it’s certainly a package worth considering, one that’s fully loaded and exciting as well. But at what price, you ask. With a starting price tag of Rs. 5.54 lakh, ex-showroom in Delhi, for the Ford Classic 1.6 Duratec petrol and Rs. 6.81 lakh, ex-showroom in Delhi, for the Ford Classic 1.4 TDCi Duratorq diesel, the Ford Classic makes an excellent case for itself as a purchase proposition if you’re on the lookout for a smart looking sedan loaded with smart technologies and fuel efficient engines but one that won’t burn a hole in your pocket thanks to its low cost of ownership.
